On the Job Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

On the Job is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. As noted above in the main body of the review, On the Job consists of a lot of handheld camerawork, including the ever popular "jiggly cam" approach, and that in and of itself gives at least the perception of softness to many sequences, since the frame is never anchored on any given scene. What's perhaps even more problematic, though, is low contrast and Matti's tendency to shoot in very low light situations for much of the film. This was no doubt intentional, and adds immeasurably to the film's kind of spooky mood, but it makes it next to impossible to make out what's going on some of the time. Characters literally disappear into the shadows at key moments. All of this said, when the film does deign to exploit more brightly lit environments, colors are nicely suffused and the image offers very good to excellent fine detail. Several sequences are either lit or were color graded in post to a kind of sickly green-yellow tint, which tends to sap some of this fine detail out.


On the Job Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

On the Job's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix has some fantastically immersive sequences, including the great street festival scene that ends in chaos when 'Tang assassinates his target. Later, there are a number of exciting moments, including the great showdown in the hospital, which is rife with rampant gunfire. Dialogue is very cleanly presented on this track. Perhaps surprisingly, there's not a glut of music providing extra impetus to some of the action scenes. Dynamic range is extremely wide on this track.
