Seven Swords

 (2005)

Seven Swords Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Set in seventeenth century China. The inhabitants of Manchuria, under the Qing dynasty, have extended their dominion over the entire country. While the masters of martial arts gather to prepare nationalist revolts, the new government--seeking to maintain order -- emits a decree prohibiting martial arts. Wind of Fire, an official in the previous dynasty, hopes to take advantage of this situation by contributing to the enforcement of the new law. Avid, cruel and immoral, Wind of Fire plunders North-Western China, and his goal is to reach the final objective, to destroy the Martial Arts Village. Fu Qingzhu, a former executioner from the previous dynasty, wants to stop this brutality at any cost and prepares to save the Fortress at Bowei. He takes Wu Yuanyin and Han Zhiban with him, traveling to Mount Paradise to beseech the help of Incandescent Shadow, a hermit and master of arms who guides a group of disciple-swordsmen. Master Incandescent Shadow agrees to help them, ordering four of his best disciples to depart. Thus the group of Seven Swords is formed, and their heroic journey begins!

Seven Swords Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

There's certainly a lot to look at in Seven Swords, and the Blu-ray's AVC encoded 1080p image (with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio) is often quite spectacular, both in more au naturel scenes as well as some of the heavily post-processed scenes, such as the very interesting looking desaturated prologue segment, where the film presents a really arresting palette of reds, blacks and whites. Detail is mostly excellent here, especially in the many close-ups (Hark in fact seems to favor midrange to close-up shots a lot of the time) where everything from the weave of individual fabrics to the pancake makeup on various characters can be seen quite clearly. The film is hampered by a noticeable softness in some of the long range exterior shots, but my hunch is these are endemic of the source elements which this Blu-ray is reproducing. This is a colorful pageant of a film, with a number of gorgeous lighting effects and some really beautiful footage of Chinese environments. Contrast and black levels are both excellent, though the post-processing of some sequences is intentionally blown out, leaving a slightly surreal look.


Seven Swords Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

If you can get past the fact that no lossless audio options are offered on this Blu-ray, both the mixed Cantonese/Mandarin Dolby Digital 5.1 and the English dub, also in Dolby Digital 5.1, provide a remarkably robust and immersive experience. I chose the original language(s) track, which does reveal its multi-lingual origins with some noticeable fidelity differences in ADR looped dialogue. Otherwise, this is a really fun and effects-filled soundtrack, from the opening rumble of the "avalanche" (really the rumble of attacking hooves) to a number of very immersive panning effects when horsemen gallop by. The metallic "ching" of the swords is bright and appropriately brittle, and the battle segments especially are a whirl of surround activity, with the clang of blades and various punches flying in from every direction. While some of the dubbing is indeed a bit on the sloppy side (though certainly nothing approaching the English version, which I spot-checked), dialogue is for the most part clear and well-mixed into the overall soundfield. The underscore can be a bit overpowering at times, but is often quite effective and well mixed, especially (somewhat ironically) in the quieter, more "personal" moments.
