The Detective 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 arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Hong Kong-based distributors Universe Laser & Video Co.

The high-definition transfer is very strong. Detail is excellent throughout the entire film - even during the very dark sequences where detective Tam is seen wandering the back alleys of Bangkok - and clarity pleasing. Contrast fluctuates, but the inconsistencies are intentional. Colors also fluctuate - the daylight scenes favor heavy yellows and browns, while the nighttime sequences feature prominent dark greens and heavy blacks. Edge-enhancement is not a serious issue of concern and there are no traces of harmful noise corrections. Banding and aliasing do not plague the high-definition transfer either. There are, however, a couple of sequences where minor compression artifacts are visible. Still, the presentation is indeed very convincing. (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 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1, Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1, and Mandarin Dolby Digital 5.1 (with large 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.

The Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track services the film exceptionally well. It has a very impressive dynamic amplitude while surround activity is amongst the best I've heard on an Asian Blu-ray release this year. Balance is also handled convincingly - there are no sudden dropouts and the special effects do not overshadow the dialog. There are no problematic pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review. The English translation, however, could have been a lot more convincing. I noticed quite a few small spelling and syntax errors.
