New Police Story

 (2004)

New Police Story Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Massive explosions and incredible stunts abound as Jackie Chan makes what many refer to as a comeback with this Chinese release. He plays the burned-out Inspector Wing, whose motivation died when the rest of his police team was wiped out at the hands of a wily and brutal new gang. When, against the odds, a rookie cop rouses the weathered Inspector to go after the gang, however, there is no stopping him until justice has been served.

For more about New Police Story and the New Police Story Blu-ray release, see New Police Story Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Jackie Chan, Nicholas Tse, Daniel Wu
Director: Benny Chan Muk Sing

New Police Story Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 17Mbps), New Police Story has impressive visuals, though there are some occasional weaknesses in the presentation that I'll get to later. Fine object detail never appears exceptional, but there's a consistent level of clarity that remains vastly superior to the standard definition version. Likewise, the color spectrum never exhibits a hint of weakness, whether we're watching the cool blue hues of the early warehouse scene, or the colorful cityscape of the runaway bus encounter. Unfortunately, despite the strengths of the overall transfer, there are several deficiencies worth pointing out. First, the transfer appears overly bright during a significant portion of the runtime, leaving certain scenes with weak black levels, and contrast that struggles to differentiate between the light and dark aspects of the picture. Second, I noticed at least two instances of subtle (yet noticeable) edge enhancement when Jackie Chan was standing in front of a bright colored backdrop. There could have been other instances I didn't notice, but the problem is most apparent when you have a dark object in the foreground (such as black hair), with a plain white background. Closing out the disappointing aspects of the picture quality, there seems to be a slight drop in the presence of facial texturing from scene to scene. I'm not concerned about the use of DNR, since there's still plenty of film grain present in the transfer, but the lack of facial definition is still a bit disappointing.

Although my assessment of the transfer might sound harsh, fans should expect a large upgrade with this Blu-ray release, and will likely find it easy to shrug off the subtle deficiencies that pop up from time to time.


New Police Story Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

As most of you know from my prior anime reviews, I prefer the native language track on foreign film productions, so I was clearly disappointed with the decision to include a lossy DTS track for the secondary Chinese option. Lionsgate likely assumed the American market would prefer the dubbed option, which explains their reasoning behind delivering a wonderful lossless mix on the English track, but I hope they reverse this trend on future releases (after all, they could easily bump this up to a dual-layered disc to allow adequate room for two lossless tracks). Regardless of my personal feelings on the matter, the English mix is truly exceptional. Given the many action sequences in the film, there's rarely a five-minute period that goes by without some degree of onscreen chaos. Since that's the main pull of the film, the audio presentation should complement the environmental effects of the various set pieces to create an immersive experience. Thankfully, that's never a problem here, as bullets can be heard zipping around the surround field (as they ricochet off walls and metal posts), while shattered glass rains down in perfect harmony. If there's one drawback to the audio presentation worth mentioning, it's the occasional volume imbalance in the dialogue. This should likely be attributed to the dubbing process and shouldn't diminish the overall experience, but it still presents a slight downgrade in an otherwise excellent track.

For those interested solely in the native language mix, you shouldn't pass on this release due to the lack of a lossless option. The DTS presentation still sounds open, and utilizes the surround field when needed. The only real difference is a slight drop in richness and clarity, coupled with a lower volume level (which is easily remedied). The one area where the Chinese track bests the English competition is in the volume balance of the dialogue, which never falls below ideal levels. As I mentioned above, this is probably due to the difference between the original recording and post-production dubbing, but at least there's one area where the Chinese option stands out.
