The Tournament Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Tournament has a surprisingly strong transfer, courtesy of an AVC encode, in 1080p and 1.78:1. Though it was probably shot on a pittance, the film looks decently sharp, with nicely saturated colors and some excellent fine detail. A lot of the film is filtered to that ice blue side of things that so many directors and DP's think make an action flick look "cool" (as, literally, blue does), and that can give an odd cast to fleshtones and surroundings at times. But I was really kind of pleasantly surprised throughout much of The Tournament with the level of clarity, with some exceptional depth of field in many of the exterior shots. This doesn't have that lo-fi telefilm ambience which hampers a lot of lower budgeted releases. This is certainly not top of the line hi-def material, but for something of this ilk, it looks a lot better than you might expect it to.


The Tournament Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Even better is the bombastic lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix. Of course with an action flick like The Tournament, you know you're going to be pummeled by LFE, and that's certainly the case here. The fight sequences erupt through the surround channels with a fair degree of aggression, and there's quite a bit of attention paid to details large (as in some over the top explosions) and small (as in the sound of knives being unsheathed). Dialogue (for what it's worth in this film, which frankly isn't much) is well positioned, clear and always easy to hear. And best of all this is a film that doesn't browbeat the listener with endless, thumping underscore cues. There's not anything particularly subtle about The Tournament's sound mix, but it's fun, immersive and sports excellent fidelity, and in a film with these modest ambitions, that's about all you can hope for.
