Sympathy for Lady Vengeance

 (2005)

Sympathy for Lady Vengeance Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Imprisoned for thirteen years for allegedly kidnapping and murdering a six-year-old boy, Lee Geum-ja wastes no time in winning over her cellmates' sympathies. From the former prostitute who strangled her pimp to the old North Korean spy who hands her the "Sutra of revenge"-- illustrated instructions for crafting a handmade gun disguised as a prayer book--all the prisoners become instrumental in the scheme Geum-ja has meticulously drafted for her future as a free woman. Deprived of her baby daughter and of her youth, Geum-ja at first seems to accept her tragic destiny. However, she never strays from her plans to take a mighty revenge on the former teacher who betrayed her and slaughtered her innocence.

Sympathy for Lady Vengeance Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Korean director Park Chan-wook's Sympathy for Lady Vengeance arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Hong Kong-based distributors Panorama.

I sincerely hope that the screencaptures we have provided with this review would give you at least a basic idea of how strong this Blu-ray transfer is - contrast is terrific, clarity very good and detail fantastic. The color-scheme is also very impressive. Reds, blues, greens, grays, blacks and whites are all natural looking, with very filmic qualities (excellent hues). Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are most definitely not an issue of concern. Disturbing artifacts are also nowhere to be seen. The lovely light effects Sympathy for Lady Vengeance is overflowing with are captured incredibly well (low digital noise isn't an issue of concern either). Additionally, when blown through a digital projector, the film looks incredibly stable. For the record, I did not detect any disturbing scratches, debris, dirt, or stains to report in this review. To sum it all up, Panorama's Blu-ray release of Sympathy for Lady Vengeance should make a lot of people very happy. (Note: Even thought this disc is marketed as Region-A only, it is in fact Region-Free. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Sympathy for Lady Vengeance Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Cantonese Dolby Digital 2.0. Panorama have also provided optional Traditional Chinese and English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame. For the record, I encountered a few grammatical errors with the English translation.

There isn't a single thing that I did not like about the Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. Though not overly active, the bass is very impressive. The rear channels are used extensively there are some very subtle effects that I do not believe I've noticed on my Tartan SDVD. Expectantly, there are no issues to report with the high frequencies. The dialog is crisp, crystal clear and very easy to follow. There are no balance issues with the lovely classical soundtrack to report in this review either. Disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings are also absent. To sum it all up, the Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track alone is a good enough reason to consider upgrading your SDVDs.
