The Legend

 (1993)

The Legend Blu-ray offers decent video and mediocre audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A carefree young martial arts expert gets involved with a government official's daughter just as he discovers his family is part of a rebel resistance movement. While his fighting ability and charm made him a local champion, his epic battle for freedom would make him a legendary hero.

For more about The Legend and the The Legend Blu-ray release, see the The Legend Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Jet Li, Josephine Siao, Michelle Reis, Adam Cheng
Director: Corey Yuen

The Legend Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

If you've followed my reviews of other Dragon Dynasty releases, you'll know I haven't been particularly kind to them, at least those first, pretty atrocious efforts in 1080i. Unfortunately, The Legend, despite a full 1080p presentation via an AVC encode (in 1.78:1) is one of the softer, grainier outings from Dragon Dynasty since they first got the message fans weren't going to go whole-hog for less than stellar transfers. This seems particularly odd considering the film's relatively recent genesis in 1993, but perhaps better source elements for this film simply weren't available. Be that as it may, this is certainly above upconverted DVD levels, but unfortunately not by much. Colors are often wan and unimpressive, and detail, especially in midrange and far shots, is pretty murky. Close-ups fare considerably better, and some of the night shots, interestingly, fare particularly well, with good black levels and contrast. On the whole, though, this is a soft presentation which will probably not horribly offend many people, but which won't set their videophile hearts aflutter either.


The Legend Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Unfortunately, the original Cantonese track, delivered here via a standard Dolby Digital 2.0 mix, is a boxy, overly compressed affair that makes everything sound as if it was recorded in a small cardboard box, and then mic'd from miles away and recorded on a casette tape. I of course exaggerate, but really only slightly. This track has very little dynamic range, especially disappointing in the battle scenes, when the actually creative foley effects just kind of lie there rather than whipping and snapping through the soundfield. Things are not helped by a lackluster score, which sounds similarly compressed. The English 5.1 track is nominally better in terms of fidelity and openness. It unfortunately features an "Americanized" score that harkens back to 1980's disco beats, mixed with pseudo-Asian elements. In this lesser of two evils choice we're given, I recommend sticking with the original Cantonese, despite its problems.
