The Great Magician

 (2011)

The Great Magician Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

In 1916, China was in turmoil with warlords battling against each other and Japanese conspirators lurking in the dark. One day, a mysterious man named Zhang Xian takes the capital city by storm with his mesmerizing magic tricks. He soon catches the attention of ruthless warlord Commander Lei, who is eager to please his seventh wife Liu Yin by taking her to see Zhang's performance. Unbeknownst to Lei, his favorite concubine was once the fiancée of Zhang, and approaching him to earn his trust is just the first step in the vengeful illusionist's secret agenda...

The Great Magician Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Great Magician is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. This is often a sumptuously beautiful film, and the high definition presentation is sharp and fluid, with excellent fine object detail that really brings out some incredible elements in both the costumes and sets. Colors are lush, deeply saturated and extremely varied, black levels are solid and contrast remains strong throughout the film. The color grading here is really on the subtle side, with occasional tints of amber in some of the more glamorous locales and a slight blue edge when the film gets out into the grittier streets. The special effects (some practical, some CGI) are well blended and look quite good, helping to make the magic seem more realistic.


The Great Magician Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Great Magician features lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Dolby Digital 2.0 mixes in both Mandarin and English. The original Mandarin 5.1 track is quite immersive, with a number of well done foley effects that explode around the surrounds. A lot of the scenes are quite crowded, and the 5.1 track does an excellent job of creating a sense of space and community, with widely splayed effects and dialogue. One niggling complaint might be the kind of cheesy score, which often sounds like 8 bit video game music (could that possibly have been intentional?). Fidelity is excellent and there's some very appealing dynamic range.
