Protege

 (2007)

Protege Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

From Tung-Shing Yee, the director of One Nite in Mongkok, comes a story about an undercover cop on a mission to expose a deadly drug cartel. Packed with plenty of raw action and one liners Protégé should meet the demands of those looking for an edgy yet stylish police thriller in the tradition of the best Hong Kong cinema is known for.

For more about Protege and the Protege Blu-ray release, see Protege Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Protege Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Deltamac present Protégé on Blu-ray with a strong 1080p transfer preserving the film's original aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The Hong Kong distribs have done a good job of complimenting the film with a nice and overall sharp print where detail is strong. This being said during the first half I noticed a few dust specks here and there which somehow found their way onto the print. The color scheme on the other hand is quite impressive as there are plenty of lush and vivid looking scenes where deeply saturated colors are overenhanced to symbolize the struggles of the main protagonists - these are captured on BR very well. Blacks vary dramatically. There are scenes where they appear solid and deep while elsewhere they are, intentionally, subdued. Once again, this has to do with the manner in which the film is composed and not with its actual encoding. Perhaps the only major complaint I have with this disc is the occasional heavy filtering of the image which particularly during daylight scenes with plenty of vibrant colors creates the allusion of out of hand edge-enhancement patterns some may find particularly annoying. Nevertheless this is a pleasing presentation which most definitely betters the earlier released DVD.


Protege Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Protégé arrives on on Blu-ray with a very proficient Cantonese DTS-HD Master 7.1 mix as well as a PCM 7.1 mix. In addition you will also find a Mandarin Dolby Digital EX 6.1 and Cantonese Dolby Digital EX 6.1 tracks. Now, this being said this disc is probably an excellent opportunity for you to see, or perhaps I shall say hear, whether or not you could detect a difference in the sound between a PCM 7.1 and DTS-HD Master 7.1 mixes. Specifically there is a scene during the second half of the film where a police raid takes place in a high-rise resulting in a short but impressive shootout. I spent quite a bit of time with it trying to decide what I liked better, the PCM or the DTS-HD Master. Needless to say both of those were top-notch, really, really powerful. This being said I am actually going to go on record here and urge you to listen to these mixes not during the loud shootout scenes but during the more subtle and quieter portions of the film where the ambient soundtrack is prevalent. You may find that there is "more" to hear here than during those loud and filled with noise scenes. Finally, this may not be a reference quality audio treatment but it is without a doubt one of the very best I've heard so far. Optional English, traditional Chinese, and simplified Chinese subtitles are provided.
