The Warlords

 (2007)

The Warlords Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

During the Taiping Rebellion of the 1860s, General Pang barely survives a brutal massacre of his fellow soldiers by playing dead, and then joins a band of bandits led by Er Hu and Wu Yang. After fighting back attackers from a helpless village, the three men take an oath to become “blood brothers,” but things quickly turn sour and the three men become embroiled in a web of political deceit, and a love triangle between Pang, Er Hu and a beautiful courtesan.

For more about The Warlords and the The Warlords Blu-ray release, see the The Warlords Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Jet Li, Andy Lau, Takeshi Kaneshiro
Directors: Peter Chan, Wai Man Yip

The Warlords Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Blu-ray.com staff writer Dr. Svet Atanasov previously reviewed the Region-A Hong Kong release of The Warlords by Megastar, and if you check out the screenshots in his review, you'll notice the transfer differs quite a bit from the one offered here by Magnolia Home Entertainment. The biggest change is that contrast has been seriously pushed for the U.S. release, often resulting in crushing blacks and hot highlights. There's also more of a distinct color cast to the image, sometimes yellow and sometime greenish. Without confirmation from the director/cinematographer, it's hard to tell which look is more "right," but both have their merits. If a bit stylized and overheated compared to the Hong Kong release, this version is still very impressive. The film has a gritty, grimy, almost Saving Private Ryan-type aesthetic, with stark gradation, selectively desaturated neutral colors, and vivid blood reds. Skin tones, though, do look a little too yellowed/bronzed in this release. Clarity is exceptional throughout, defining skin and clothing texture, resolving the intricacies of armor and weaponry, and detailing the mixture of mud and blood caked on soldiers' faces. Grain varies, purposefully intensifying during battle scenes and seeming finer elsewhere, but it's always present, giving the image a warm, filmic texture. The print is clean, and compression-related distractions are entirely absent.


The Warlords Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

While the MegaStar release contained a lossless Mandarin 7.1 surround track, this U.S. version offers DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mixes in both Mandarin and English. Do note that the disc defaults to the unsurprisingly awful English dub, so you might want to have a fiddle in the set-up menu before starting the film. (Unless, that is, you're keen on hearing an Australian accent issue inexplicably forth from Andy Lau's mouth, which is, I'll admit, pretty funny for about ten minutes.) Despite being pared down from 7.1 to 5.1 channels, this is a strong mix, with a sweeping dynamic range and lots of engaging surround channel usage. The battle scenes, as you'd hope and expect, are sonically hectic, putting you right in the middle of the action. Swords clash and clang all around, gunfire cracks and arrows zip through the rears, and cannons explode with room-rattling LFE output. If you turn this one up, your subwoofer will definitely get a workout, both from the artillery and the propulsive, drum- heavy score. Some forum members have commented on changes in the soundtrack between the MegaStar and Magnolia releases, but I've not yet been able to watch the MegaStar version to compare. For most viewers, this will likely be a sounds perfectly fine since you don't really know what you're missing scenario. Dialogue is always easy to understand, and the subtitles appear at the bottom of the frame in easy-to-read white lettering.
