Overheard

 (2009)

Overheard Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

A major stock exchange in the world, Hong Kong attracts not only money but anyone who tries to manipulate the market. At the Hong Kong Police Force Commercial Crime Bureau, an operation is underway to infiltrate a trading company where a man nicknamed Boss is the chief suspect. The team, led by Inspector Leung together with Yeung and Lam installs bugs to monitor the communications. When crucial information on a surging share is intercepted, a moment of greed now puts them in a crossfire between the Bureau and the boss.

Overheard Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Felix Chong and Alan Mak's Overheard arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Hong Kong-based distributors Panorama.

This is a fine but not overly impressive transfer. Clarity and detail are somewhat inconsistent. The close-ups look fine, but are never as detailed as one would expect them to be. On the other hand, some of the large panoramic shots are plagued by mild edge-enhancement. The color-scheme is also a bit underwhelming; blues, dark yellows, browns, and blacks occasionally look soft and faded. On a positive side, there are absolutely no stability issues to report in this review. When blown through a digital projector, Overheard remains tight around the edges. Aside from a few minor flecks, there are no disturbing scratches, debris, dirt, or cuts that I noticed either. All in all, while there are no serious flaws with this transfer, there are a variety of smaller issues that may annoy the more sensitive amongst you. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Overheard Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1, Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1, and Mandarin Dolby Digital 5.1. I opted for the Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track and later on did a few random comparisons with the Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 track for the purpose of this review.

The Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track is rather impressive; it conveys a wide range of dynamics and effective surround channel activity. The bass is also excellent, though, admittedly, not overly active. The dialog is clean and easy to follow. Even when the main protagonists are testing the data they have recorded, the audio quality remains pleasingly crisp. Additionally, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review. There are no balance issues with Chan Kwong Wing's music score either.

As expected, the Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 track lacks the dynamic intensity of the Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track. To my ears, even the dialog sounds a lot crisper on the Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track. During the few scenes that I tested on both tracks, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review.

For the record, Panorama have provided optional English and traditional Chinese subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.
