The Guillotines

 (2012)

The Guillotines Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

During the Manchurian-ruled Qing Dynasty, Emperor Yong Zheng established a secret assassination squad known as the Guillotines to eliminate all who opposed him. Once heavily favored by the Emperor, the Guillotines are deemed expendable once Emperor Qian Long ascends to the throne and adopts Western ideas and technology. To consolidate his power under a new regime, the Emperor continues to use the Guillotines to persecute the conquered Han Chinese in a reign of terror and oppression.

For more about The Guillotines and the The Guillotines Blu-ray release, see the The Guillotines Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

The Guillotines Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Guillotines is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.39:1. Director Andrew Lau and cinematographer Edmund Fung can't be faulted for the look of this digitally shot outing, which is really sumptuous and full blooded (take that literally if you must). While there's the requisite amount of sometimes severe color grading involved, typically toward either the yellow or blue sides of the spectrum, fine detail is rarely if ever compromised, and the entire film boasts really appealing precision. CGI is effortlessly interwoven into the proceedings, especially with regard to the admittedly super cool looking flying discs which become mini-guillotines. Lau evidently instructed Fung to keep the camera hyperkinetic, and the film is a nonstop barrage of tracking, dollying, Steadicam and crane shots. Some of the location photography boasts incredible depth of field, and the opulent sets and costumes are rendered with fantastic texture and detail.


The Guillotines Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Wow. Let's just say that The Guillotines' lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 passed the "Blu-rays stacked on my subwoofer are now flying through the air like mini-guillotines" test with ease. This is one aggressive mix that delivers a lot of things that go boom—repeatedly. The surround activity is totally immersive and includes a number of standout sequences, including one cascading series of explosions in an early fight sequence which features a really amazing low frequency rumble which clearly moves from the front channels around the sides and into the rear channels, while at the same time giving the subwoofer a real workout. Despite all of this sometimes overpowering sonic activity, dialogue is always delivered cleanly, well prioritized in the mix. The film doesn't really exploit much in the way of traditional underscore, but there is the use of some cool ethnic flutes of some kind in some scenes that sounds great. Fidelity is sterling and dynamic range is amazingly wide. By the way, the English dub on this disc is really pretty good, all things considered. There isn't the "What's Up Tiger Lily? disconnect" between lip movements and voice work that often accompanies these efforts, and in terms of overall mix, there's no appreciable difference.
