Police Story

 (1985)

Police Story Blu-ray features poor video and great audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

A police raid on a drug gang goes awry, and for detective Kevin Chan, nothing seems to go right from there. Even when the gang boss is brought to trial, he is acquitted when Kevin's evidence disappears from under his nose. His attempt to rescue a beautiful but reluctant key witness results in Kevin being wanted for murder and on the run from both the gang and his own squad. To bring the gang to justice he has to find the evidence and the witness--and stay alive long enough to convince his colleagues of his innocence.

For more about Police Story and the Police Story Blu-ray release, see Police Story Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Police Story Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Police Story is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.33:1. The good news is that based solely on a comparison of screenshots with the Hong Kong release of this title reviewed by my colleague Dr. Svet Atanasov, this version boasts somewhat better saturated color, less noise and a perhaps relatively sharper image (I do not own the Hong Kong version and so cannot do a direct disc to disc comparison and so want to make clear this is done "unscientifically" by simply looking at screenshots). The bad news is, it's still pretty shoddy looking. According to Shout! Factory the HD masters for both of these films were provided by Fortune Star, and some have claimed that these are upscales (I'd be prone to believe it for this film, but Police Story 2 looks noticeably better). The film is downright fuzzy in midrange and wide shots, though to be fair things approach a decent if low grade high definition appearance in some close-ups (see the first and third screenshots accompanying this review for some examples). Overall, though, the bulk of this film is still very soft and pretty grainy looking. Some of this is obviously endemic to the source elements and should not be blamed solely on the transfer. Unfortunately it's fairly evident that some digital sharpening was employed to help overcome some of these issues and edge enhancement is pretty noticeable in some scenes, though it doesn't seem to rise quite to the level of that seen in the Hong Kong release (compare the screenshots of Chan and Lin in the hallway from the two versions to see what I mean). The elements have their fair share of issues as well, with fairly consistent specks and scratches cropping up.


Police Story Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Police Story features loss DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and 2.0 mixes in both Cantonese and English. "Original" language purists might be a little disappointed with the Cantonese mix, since it's patently obvious that large swaths of this language were dubbed just like the English mix. That means in both of these tracks there are significant quasi-sync issues where lip movements don't quite match the sounds emanating from them. One rather interesting thing is how much louder the dialogue is mixed in the Cantonese track—it's actually kind of startling if you toggle between the tracks. Both of these tracks are pretty resolutely front heavy in their 5.1 versions, though some of the big action set pieces do fitfully engage the surround channels. There are a number of excellent sound effects which help give the film a rather wide dynamic range. Fidelity is very good, though the film's underscore is kind of grating and some might wish it had been mixed a bit softer.
