The Last Tycoon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Last Tycoon is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.39:1. This digitally shot feature (with both Arri and Red cameras) boasts a rather sleek, smooth appearance which nonetheless provides ample fine detail as the camera swoops past the rather opulent sets and (especially) some of the costumes. Aside from some prevalent banding, this is largely an artifact free presentation, though contrast tends to vary quite a bit, with exterior scenes looking very good most of the time but some of the interior shots seeming fairly dank and murky looking. Colors are rather nicely lustrous here, and for once a director and DP have not aggressively color graded a film simply because they have the ability to do so. The result is an overall very natural looking offering from a palette perspective. As stated above, some of the film's CGI elements are questionable, with a less than realistic demeanor and a rather soft overall appearance. Generally speaking, though, The Last Tycoon's high definition presentation is very enjoyable, with only a few minor quibbles which may or may not bother alert videophiles.


The Last Tycoon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Last Tycoon's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track (in Mandarin with optional English subtitles) is extremely well done, offering abundant surround activity in virtually every scene. From the opening moments when Cheng is viewing a theatrical performance, through several large scale group sequences and moving on to the climactic attack segment, the track offers some really nicely forceful low end and real attention to detail in terms of foley effects. Some of these are fairly predictable, like the panning noises accompanying planes swooping in for the kill, but at times a much more nuanced approach is taken, as in a quieter scene between Cheng and Ye in a largely abandoned church, where simple hall ambience adds to a nice recreation of sonic space. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is extremely wide.
