The Assassin's Blade

 (2008)

The Assassin's Blade Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Life is fleeting as the butterfly, beautiful yet transient. As legends has it, a pair of butterfly lovers reappears once more after having gone through three lifetimes of repeated pain and tears. This time, they find each other in the world of martial arts. Liang is highly skilled in martial arts and resides in the mountains. When his master tasks him to take care of Zhu, a girl from a wealthy family who disguises as guy to herself from revenge, it sparks off the painful journey that they must go through once again. Zhuâ's father, in order to pay the kindness shown to him, has betrothed her to a General Ma, although Zhu is in love with Liang. Love can fester into hate in some while in the selected few, it can lead to undying love that survives one lifetime after another.

The Assassin's Blade Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Assassin's Blade is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. Having never seen this film in its theatrical exhibition, I can't really comment with any precision as to whether this Blu-ray recreates its cinematic appearance, but I can say there are some kind of strange anomalies going on here. While it's obvious the film has been very aggressively color graded at the DI stage, often to the ever popular blue side of things, there's a really bizarre purplish haze covering many sequences here, something that might be pushed contrast but really doesn't look exactly like that. If you can overlook that tendency, the rest of this high definition presentation is quite pleasing, if a little soft looking most of the time. Fine object detail pops quite well in the film's many close-ups, and some of the outdoor shots offer great depth of field (though one assumes some of that was achieved through CGI).


The Assassin's Blade Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Assassin's Blade's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix in the original Cantonese has bursts of fantastic surround activity but then tends to retreat (or advance as the case may be) to the front channels for most of the dialogue sequences. Since this isn't a no holds barred wuxia-fest, those who want their soundtracks filled with nonstop immersion and LFE are most likely going to be at least minimally disappointed with the rather restrained affair on tap here, but fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is quite wide, all things considered.
