Red Cliff Part I & II Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

An epic look for a truly epic pair of films. Spread across two discs, Red Cliff—the complete version—scales the summits of Blu-ray in a 2.35:1 aspect ratio, with a 1080p, VC-1 encoded transfer that give an untainted vista into John Woo's ancient Chinese world. This is the kind of transfer that really makes you appreciate a film's production design and costume work, as each plate of armor and link of chain mail is remarkably detailed, the intricate threading on regal clothing proudly appreciable, and the ornate sets looking believably lived-in. In close-ups, facial texture is so defined—pores, wrinkles, whiskers—that you'd swear the actors themselves were peering out from behind your TV screen. The picture is sharp and clean, without ever showing evidence of misguided edge enhancement. Color is equally impressive, vibrant with bursts of fire and red battle banners waving, while earth tones are selectively and slightly desaturated to achieve that appropriately gritty epic warfare aesthetic. Skin tones are warm and largely consistent—though there are a few candlelit scenes where Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tony Leung's faces look almost comically orange—and black levels rarely waver from a deep inkwell shade, with contrast that's pleasingly pushed for a look that, if not entirely natural, offers lots of pop, depth, and presence. Topping it all off is a thin layer of untouched cinematic grain that only spikes during a few of the darkest scenes and a handful of landscape and aerial shots that might've been sourced from stock footage. Even at two and a half hours per disc, with plenty of smoke and dust cluttering the frame, compression artifacts are almost wholly absent, and I didn't spot any overt instances of banding or other technical troubles. Also, for those that might be interested, I didn't see any discernable differences between this two-disc set and the single-disc U.S. theatrical version of the film.


Red Cliff Part I & II Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

While the single-disc U.S. theatrical version of the movie includes an original language track as well as an English dub, this two-disc international set is Mandarin-only, saving you the trouble of having to decide between the film as it was meant to be heard and the film as envisioned by inevitably hokey American voice actors. Trust me, unless you're the sort that simply can't abide subtitles, you're not going to miss the dub. The Mandarin DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that we get here is a bombastic experience that should keep most audiophiles' ears very happy. There were a few moments when I felt the sound could have been bigger and more immersive—times when the clamor of battle didn't feel as clamorous as it could've been—but in retrospect, I think I was just being greedy. Really, there's not much more you could ask for here. From the slightest sound, like the rattle of the beads on Sun Quan's headdress, to the biggest earth-quaking explosion, this track is detailed, lively, and dynamically intense. Arrows zip through the rear speakers against a sonic backdrop of reverberating war drums, gooey, flesh-rending sounds of piercing spears, and the clang of metal on metal. The LFE channel rumbles to life frequently with a stampeding cavalcade of horses, rippling fire, and black, billowing clouds of smoke. When quieter times prevail, you'll hear the whisper of wind and the soft patter of rain. Taro Iwashiro's score surges from bellicose war anthems to sweeping lyrical refrains, and the duet played by Zhou Yu and Zhu-ge Liang on the qin—a koto-like stringed instrument—is beautifully textured. If you speak Mandarin, the dialogue should be easily discernable, even in the heat of battle, and for the rest of us, the subtitles appear in clean white lettering.
