Vengeance Trilogy

 (2002-2005)

Vengeance Trilogy Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

'Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance' - The sister of a simple and deaf factory worker, Ryu, falls ill and needs a kidney transplant, however he is not a match so he looks to the black market which he can’t afford. After being fired from his job, his rebel girlfriend suggests that he kidnap the child of his former boss, Park. When the girl accidentally dies, her father seeks vengeance for her death. 'Oldboy' - Park Chan-Wook’s classic genre-defining revenge tale of a man who’s wrongly been imprisoned for 15 years and is then suddenly released. Given money and a cell phone, he’s challenged to discover who incarcerated him in the first place, but he only has five days to uncover the truth. Even with a mysterious young girl to help him, his tortures have just begun. Cannes-winner championed by Tarantino, OLDBOY regularly appeared in top ten best movie polls across the country and is listed as one of the all-time best films as rated by IMDB users. 'Lady Vengeance' - After being wrongfully convicted of kidnapping and murdering a young child, a beautiful young woman (Lee Young-ae) is imprisoned for 13 years. While in prison she gains the respect and loyalty of her fellow cellmates, all the while plotting her vendetta on the man responsible (OLDBOY’s Choi Min-Sik). Upon her release she sets in motion an elaborate plan of retribution, but what she discovers is a truth so horrifying, even revenge doesn’t seem punishment enough.

Vengeance Trilogy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.31:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Park Chan-wook's Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Canadian distributors Alliance.

It appears that Alliance have used the same high-definition transfer Palisades Tartan used for their Blu-ray release of Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance. I did some random comparisons between the two releases and really could not see much of a difference. Generally speaking, fine object detail is very good, while sharpness and contrast levels are relatively consistent. The color reproduction is also satisfying; the variety of blacks, blues, greens, yellows, browns, and blacks look lush and healthy. There are no serious stability issues to report in this review either. My only minor complaint here pertains to the presence of mild edge-enhancement that is occasionally easy to spot. Still, this is a strong high-definition transfer that does the film justice. (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).

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.30:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Park Chan-wook's Oldboy arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Canadian distributors Alliance.

Once again, from what I could tell this high-definition transfer is identical to the one Palisades Tartan used for their Blu-ray release of Oldboy. Thus, I would have to leave the same comments I had for the British release of the film. In my opinion, the high-definition transfer is fairly inconsistent. Most of it, and especially the daylight footage from the first half of the film, looks good; detail and clarity are pleasing. During the final 20-25 minutes, however, there is plenty of digital noise. During selected scenes there is also some light flicker around the edges. Finally, there are random noise corrections that have been applied as well. All in all, while the transfer is certainly serviceable, I share the opinion that it could have been quite a bit stronger. (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).

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Park Chan-wook's Sympathy for Lady Vengeance arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Canadian distributors Alliance.

Alliance have included the Theatrical and "Fade to White" versions of Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, and aside from some mild edge-enhancement occasionally popping up here and there on the "Fade to White" version, both look very good. The various close-ups for instance convey wonderful depth, while even the darker panoramic vistas are wonderfully detailed. There are no annoying artifacts or serious stability issues. I also did not see any large flecks, scratches, stains, or damage marks to report in this review. (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).

Note: Screenshots 1-6 are from Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, 7-13 from Oldboy, and 14-19 from Sympathy for Lady Vengeance.


Vengeance Trilogy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Alliance have provided optional English and French subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, both appear inside the image frame.

The Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track isn't likely to test the muscles of audio system. The surround activity is rather limited, while the bass comes alive only during a few of the key scenes in the final third of the film. Still, the sound has very pleasing organic qualities, and the dialog is exceptionally easy to follow. For the record, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, hissings, or audio dropouts to report in this review. The English translation is also very good.

Oldboy

There are five audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1, Korean Dolby Digital 5.1 EX, Korean Dolby Digital 2.0, English Dolby Digital 5.1, and English Dolby Digital 2.0. For the record, Alliance have provided optional English and French subtitles for the main feature. When the English subtitles are turned on, the split the image frame and the black bar below it. When the French subtitles are turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track is solid. Though the surround channels are not overly active, the loseless track adds an enormous amount of depth to Shim Hyun-jung's music score. During the various action scenes (such as the one in the tunnel where the main protagonist is attacked by a gang of goons), the bass also is very effective. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow. I also did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, hissings, or audio dropouts to report in this review. The English translation is very well done.

Sympathy for Lady Vengeance

There is only one track available for the two version of the film: Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Alliance have provided optional English and French subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track on this disc is the most impressive one in the entire trilogy - it is wonderfully nuanced and indeed very effective. Choi Seung-hyun's ambient music score also benefits tremendously from the loseless treatment. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow. There are no disturbing pops, clicks, hissing or audio dropouts either. The English translation is excellent.
