Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

As with the Domestic Single Version, Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.34:1. This is a huge, expansive film that glories in the jungles of Taiwan and it retains a suitably lush, even spectacular, look in this high definition presentation. The DI has been tweaked in post per the usual contemporary practice, with lots of color grading and filtering that alternately cast warm golden or cool blue hues on entire segments. Fine object detail is extremely sharp and pleasing and fine grain levels are also consistent. The one recurrent problem in this transfer is unsightly flicker and instability in many of the jungle scenes. It's quite normal for some reason that many transfers just can't quite seem to handle heavy foliage very well, with a resultant breakdown in resolution, but in this case the entire frame flickers rather badly in several sequences. The only other niggling process is some less than consistent CGI, including several rainbows that arch across the sky and look like they were ported in from some ancient Hanna-Barbera enterprise. It should be noted that this longer International Version spends quite a bit more time in very misty or cloudy forest sequences, which adds a gauzy ambience to a lot of the film that some may mistake for inherent softness in the elements themselves.


Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Again as with the Domestic Single Version of Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale, both the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and standard Dolby Digital 2.0 mixes included on this International Version are labeled with the generic "Chinese" (not even Mandarin or Cantonese), but some cursory research seems to indicate that the actual languages being spoken in the film are the native Seediq tongue and Japanese (one member has also PMd me to indicate some of the film is actually in Korean as well). Since I am certainly no expert in Eastern languages, I have set the specs above to mirror what the labeling on the disc states. One way or the other, the 5.1 sound mix here is unusually impressive, with beautifully nuanced ambient environmental sounds creating a near continual sense of immersion (sometimes literally, when the camera delves beneath the water). The battle scenes are appropriately bombastic (and the final showdown in this International Version is considerably longer and more sonically developed than in the Domestic Version), and rather interestingly we get a variety of nice foley effects, from gunshots to the slice and dice of heads being removed from bodies. Dialogue is clear and well prioritized. The very Western sounding score, which some may find anachronistic but which I personally found quite moving at times, also spills into the surrounds during virtually every cue. Dynamic range is exceedingly wide.
