The Myth

 (2005)

The Myth Blu-ray offers solid video and mediocre audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Chan stars as Jack, an intrepid and world-renowned archaeologist who has begun having dreams of a past life as a warrior in ancient China. When a fellow scientist asks for Jack's help in locating the mausoleum of China's first emperor, the past collides violently with the present as he discovers his amazing visions are based in fact. When they discover an ancient sword and a magical gemstone that can defy the laws of gravity, the past collides violently with the present with often comical consequences.

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

The Myth Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Stanley Tong's The Myth arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of UK-based distributors Showbox.

The transfer for this rather recent film is good. Clarity and detail are mostly pleasing, contrast very good and edge-enhancement not a serious issue of concern (however, I did notice a mild dose of it very early into the film). The color-scheme is also strong. Yellows, blues, reds, greens, grays and blacks (especially during the cave footage) are rich and well saturated, yet also natural looking. A lot of the outdoor scenes from the Dasar Kingdom for example look terrific. This being said, sharpness levels appear slightly boosted, which I believe is something the more sensitive amongst you will immediately recognize. On the other hand, I did not detect any severe examples of noise reduction. I also did not detect any disturbing debris, specks, or stains. To sum it all up, Showbox have provided a good transfer for The Myth, which fans of the film will be pleased with. (Note: Even though this Blu-ray release is marketed as being Region-B, it is in fact Region-Free. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


The Myth Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1, Cantonese Dolby Digital 2.0 and English Dolby Digital 5.1. I opted for the Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 track and later on did a few random comparisons with the other two tracks.

It is a bit unfortunate that these stylishly designed Blu-ray discs Showbox are producing aren't getting more elaborate audio tracks. At this point, I must assume that there are contractual limitations of some sort preventing them from offering loseless tracks, which Showbox must respect. That said, the Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 track is good, though not overly impressive. There is a decent amount of activity in the rear channels that serves the majority of the action rather well. The bass is also strong, but not as potent as I expected it to be. On the other hand, the high frequencies are certainly not overdone. The dialog is crisp, clean and very easy to follow. Finally, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review.

The English Dolby Digital 5.1 track/dub is ineffective. I understand why it has been offered, but after testing a number of scenes with it, my impressions of it are not favorable. The emotion and intensity heard on the Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 track are totally missing on the English Dolby Digital 5.1 track. In fact, often times it feels as if the dubbers are simply reciting their lines. That said, the basics for the English Dolby Digital 5.1 track – surround activity, bass potency, and dialog clarity- are comparable. I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings with it either. For the record, Showbox have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.
