The Rooftop

 (2013)

The Rooftop Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Gao and his friends are the happiest kids in the city of Galilee. Living on the rooftops of this bustling metropolis*sometimes life can be tough*but they still churn out songs all day*and dance under the stars at night. But when Gao meets his dream girl*a billboard beauty named Sian*fate takes him on a wild ride through the high and low parts of the town he loves.

For more about The Rooftop and the The Rooftop Blu-ray release, see the The Rooftop Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Jay Chou, Eric Tsang, Xu Fan, Alan Ko, Xueqi Wang

The Rooftop Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Rooftop is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.40:1. This is an incredibly colorful film and its palette is probably the most distinctive feature of its high definition presentation. Deep lustrous reds, purples, greens, yellows and blues burst off the screen with amazing vividness and saturation. The film boasts a generally very crisp and well detailed image, especially in the out of doors sequences. But there are recurrent contrast problems which tend to deprive the image of fine detail with contrast pushed at times to the point where brighter colors bloom slightly. The final showdown between Big Red and Wax in a theater is bathed in red light and has some minor posterizing problems. A lot of the film has been done in front of green screens or with other CGI elements, all of which often have a soft, undefined look about them.

Note: I encountered a lot of difficulty getting The Rooftop to load on my PS3. I was actually sent more than one copy of this release and all of them had issues. One of them flat out refused to load, while the others ultimately did load, but then had an odd anomaly occur where the main menu loaded briefly, then froze, then reloaded in a slightly enlarged version, with the menu selections disabled. Within a second or two, the film then began playing automatically. None of the copies would even load on my PC Blu-ray drive. I have since received an email from a member who received an advance copy who experienced these same issues. It's my hunch, then, that there are either outright authoring issues at play here or at the very least a bad run of discs.


The Rooftop Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Rooftop's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 audio track is a very lively affair, with good surround activity in the many musical elements, but also with regard to some of the busy cityscape sound effects. Dialogue is also very cleanly and clearly presented, though it should be noted that the film indulges in a fairly nonstop array of sounds—there's very little "down time" in this mix. Dynamic range is quite wide in both the musical and non-musical sequences.
