The Stool Pigeon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Dante Lam's The Stool Pigeon arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Hong Kong-based distributors Vicol Entertainment.

This is a good, though slightly inconsistent, high-definition transfer. Generally speaking, fine object detail is very good and clarity pleasing. The color-scheme is also satisfying; the variety of yellows, light blues, greens, browns, grays, and blacks are rich and well saturated. This being said, some of the daylight scenes convey traces of mild to moderate edge-enhancement (early into the film, during the first jewelry store visit, there is some sharpening that is quite easy to spot). Marcoblocking, however, is not an issue of concern. I also did not see any annoying compression artifacts. There are no serious stability issues either. Lastly, I did not see any purely transfer-specific anomalies to report in this review. To sum it all up, despite the few minor issues noted above, The Stool Pigeon looks good on Blu-ray, and I have absolutely no problem recommending it to you. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


The Stool Pigeon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1, Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 Mandarin Dolby TrueHD 7.1 (with some portions of Mandarin). For the record, Vicol Entertainment have provided optional English, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track is very impressive. The bass is potent and punchy, the rear channels very active and very intelligently used, and the high-frequencies not overdone. Many of the shootouts are remarkably intense, and there are two scenes during the second half of the film that could easily be used to demonstrate what 'reference quality' is. I don't want to describe them so that I do not spoil the film for you, but have your remote control close to you; you will need it. The dialog is crisp, stable, clean, and exceptionally easy to follow. Lastly, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, hissings, or audio dropouts to report in this review.

I only tested a couple of scenes with Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1, but could not hear much of a difference in terms of dynamic progression and fluidity are concerned. The dialog is equally crisp, stable, and easy to follow.
