Running Out of Time Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Johnnie To's Running Out of Time arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Hong Kong-based distributors Kam & Ronson Enterprises.

The high-definition transfer is surprisingly good. Though it has been struck from a dated source, it is a notable step in quality. For example, detail is dramatically improved during close-ups -- I've tried to get a good number of various close-ups to illustrate the upgrade -- while clarity levels are pleasingly consistent even during the darker sequences from inside the business building. Color reproduction is also convincing. The variety of blues, greens, browns, and blacks do not break up as they do on the R1 SDVD release (Tai Seng Entertainment). Also, the prominent macroblocking from the R1 SDVD release has practically been eliminated as well. This being said, the high-definition transfer is not without flaws. Quite obviously, it is a dated one, and traces of light filtering could be easily seen. The good news, however, is that the image has plenty of depth, and film grain, though mixed with a small dose of noise, is also present. Additionally, there are no traces of post-production sharpening similar to the ones seen in Full Throttle, or strong halo effects and/or aliasing. Some small scratches and flecks occasionally pop up here and there, but large cuts or damage marks are nowhere to be seen. All in all, this is one of the better catalog releases I've seen this year from Kam & Ronson Enterprises. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Running Out of Time Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 and Mandarin Dolby Digital 5.1. For the record, Kam & Ronson Enterprises have provided optional English and Traditional Chinese subtitles for the main feature.

Like the video treatment, the audio treatment is surprisingly good. The Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track has a decent range of dynamics that enhance the various action scenes in the film quite well. Admittedly, balance could have been improved, but none of the sudden dynamic collapses that I've heard on other HK catalog releases are present here. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and easy to follow.

Though far from disappointing, the English translation isn't overly convincing either. I noticed a few spelling and syntax errors that should have been avoided.
