Police Story

 (1985)

Police Story Blu-ray features terrible video and decent audio in this disappointing 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 1.5 out of 5.

Police Story Blu-ray, Video Quality

  1.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jackie Chan's Police Story arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Hong Kong-based distributors Kam & Ronson Enterprises.

This is a very problematic transfer; detail and clarity are surprisingly weak while contrast levels are probably the worst I have seen since Asian distributors started releasing on Blu-ray. Edge-enhancement is practically everywhere; at times it is so heavy that it actually affects the film's color-scheme. Macroblocking is also a serious issue of concern; especially during the outdoor scenes, it is extremely easy to spot. Furthermore, there are numerous flecks, scratches and debris that pop up throughout the entire film. There are frame transition problems as well. On top of everything else, there is some constant very heavy flickering that practically makes Police Story unwatchable. To sum it all up, this is indeed a very, very disappointing release that will surely upset a number of different people. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free player in order to access its content).


Police Story Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1, Mandarin Dolby TrueHD 7.1 and Thai Dolby Digital EX 6.1.

The inclusion of a Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track may suggest a solid audio treatment, but the reality is quite different. This is a very front-heavy mix, which only occasionally takes advantage of the surround channels. Additionally, the bass has been unnaturally boosted, creating all sorts of balance issues. Finally, the mix lacks depth and fluidity. In fact, there are a few scenes in Police Story where it feels like the sound is coming through a cone of some sort. All in all, if you choose to pick this disc up, lower your expectations well in advance so that you are not enormously disappointed once you start watching the film. For the record, Kam & Ronson Enterprises have provided optional English, Traditional Chinese and Thai subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.
