The Legend Is Born: Ip Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Legend is Born: Ip Man is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of FUNimation Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. This is by and large a very appealing looking transfer if some deliberate filtering is taken into consideration. The first part of the film recounting Ip Man's youth, is intentionally desaturated, presented in a kind of quasi- sepia tinged with amber highlights. Despite the filtering, fine detail remains relatively strong, though some minimal shadow detail is lost. Once the film segues into a more natural looking palette, fine detail is very good to exceptional, and sharpness and clarity are increased substantially. The transfer has a couple of niggling artifacting issues, notably aliasing on such usual suspects as the parallel lines of metal fences and the like. Otherwise, though, this is a strong and solid presentation, with a suitably cinematic look, good contrast and black levels, and excellent clarity.


The Legend Is Born: Ip Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Two lossless audio options are offered on The Legend is Born: Ip Man, both Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround mixes. The English dub is a fairly useless track, with over the top voice work and dialogue that doesn't always match the subtitles very well. The original Cantonese track on the other hand is very well rendered here, though persnickety audiophiles might wish for more consistent surround activity outside of the action sequences. This particular Ip Man is less dependent on fight sequences for its dramatic purposes and that means that a lot of the film plays out in quieter dialogue scenes with the sound mix resolutely anchored in the front channels. Once we do get an action sequence, though, the surrounds come fully alive and the sound effects can be quite startling at times, especially when one of the nefarious Japanese decides to use a sword to increase their chances. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is similarly very, very good on this expressive track.
