Triad Trilogy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  1.0 of 5

Encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted 1080p transfers, Johnnie To's Election and Election II and Wong Ching-Po's Triad Underworld arrive on Blu-ray courtesy of Palisades Tartan.

The screencaptures included with our review appear in the following order:

1. Election: 1-10.
2. Election II: 11-20.
3. Triad Underworld: 21-30.

The three transfers are atrocious. Frankly, I don't remember the last time I saw such poor presentations of contemporary films. (Even Cinema Libre's disappointing presentation of The Moon in the Gutter looks good now). The three films are placed on a BD-25 and, needless to say, compressed so badly that are virtually unwatchable. There are entire portions of Election, for instance, where all that I could see were large black spots instead of faces (see screencapture #7). Contrast, clarity, and color reproduction are also nowhere near close to where they should be, especially on Election and Election II. On the other hand, there is some serious encoding defect with the transfer for Triad Underworld - every once in a while the image twitches as if there is an entire frame missing. Also, colors constantly collapse, while banding is practically everywhere. It saddens me to say it, but I have DVDs in my library that look far superior. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Triad Trilogy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There are three Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 tracks on this Blu-ray disc, one for each film. For the record, Palisades Tartan have provided optional yellow English and Spanish subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The lossless tracks are fairly decent. On Election and Election II, in particular, the action scenes boast pleasing crispness. On Triad Underworld, however, balance is problematic - the dynamic progressions are uneven and the dialog occasionally seems too loud. Fortunately, I did not detect any high-frequency distortions or audio dropouts to report in this review. The English translation is good.
