The Viral Factor Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Viral Factor is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. Lam has an eye for action and while the bulk of this film takes place in Malaysia, he and cinematographer Kenny Tse span the globe in setting up the story and then occasionally touching on other locales as various subplots enter the fray, and those all help to make the film an eye popping treat. As is typical these days, the DI has been tweaked and color graded at times, with a slate blue ambience in cityscapes and a gritty, low contrast look in several darker scenes, though generally speaking we get a relatively "normal" looking color scale which is nicely saturated and very robust. Fine object detail is outstanding most of the time, with an exceptionally sharp and clear image. There are some very minor artifacting issues to confront in this transfer, however, including some minor stability issues in several of the urban sequences, and perhaps most noticeably, motion judder in several pans that almost make the image look like an earthquake is occurring. Otherwise, though, this is a very nice looking high definition presentation that is augmented by the film's excellent use of locations.


The Viral Factor Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Viral Factor's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix is available both in the original Cantonese and in a fairly laughable English dub, which is only recommended if you absolutely can't stand to read subtitles. The mix here is incredibly aggressive, with bombastic LFE and some exciting and thunderous sound effects which are very smartly placed throughout the surrounds. The film gets off to a blistering start with a showdown which of course devolves into a firefight, and everything from gigantic car crashes to nonstop gunfire is delivered with acuity and razor sharp fidelity. Dialogue almost takes a back seat in this film, which may not be a bad thing considering some of the less than sterling interchanges, but all the spoken elements are clearly and cleanly delivered. (It should be noted that even in the Cantonese track, several of the charactersincluding some of the Chinese themselvesspeak English.) The mix is extremely potent, well prioritized, and delivers extremely wide dynamic range.
