The Detective 2 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Oxide Pang's The Detective 2 arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Hong Kong-based distributors Universe Laser & Video Co.

The sequel looks as impressive on Blu-ray as the first film. Again, there are no compromises in terms of detail and clarity, and even the darkest sequences in the film where detective Tam is seen wandering the poorly lit streets of Bangkok look fantastic. Colors are substantially toned down but still look rich and well saturated. Contrast levels are also better balanced. There are no traces of overzealous sharpening. Problematic noise corrections have not been performed either. The high-definition transfer is also free of heavy compression artifacts, banding and aliasing. Finally, there are absolutely no stability issues to report in this review whatsoever. (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).


The Detective 2 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are five audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1, Cantonese LPCM 7.1, Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1, Mandarin DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1, and Mandarin Dolby Digital 5.1 (with portions of Thai). For the record, Universe Laser & Video Co. have provided optional English, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.

I viewed the film with the Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track and thought that it was exceptional -- screeching tires, objects falling and gun shots sound absolutely terrific. The track's overall dynamic amplitude is also quite impressive. The dialog is crisp, clean, and stable. The English translation, however, is problematic. There are numerous syntax and spelling errors that occasionally make it virtually impossible to figure out what is being said.
