Written By Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Wai Ka-Fai's Written By arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Hong Kong-based distributors Mei Ah.

This is a solid transfer from Mei Ah – contrast is lovely, clarity very good and detail pleasing. The color-scheme is wild but very impressive in 1080p. During the second half of the film, when Melody and Tony's worlds begin to merge, there are some incredible looking scenes. This being said, I did notice a bit of mild edge-enhancement popping up here and there, but I don't think that it is something that would annoy you. Macroblocking is not an issue of concern. Digital noise, however, is noticeable on a couple of scenes, and I am fairly certain that those of you with larger screens will spot its presence. The actual transfer is very healthy – there are no scratches, debris, or dirt that I noticed. There are no stability issues to report either. All in all, aside from the digital noise mentioned above, Written By looks very good. (Note: This is a Region-Free disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Written By Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1, Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 and Mandarin Dolby Digital 5.1. I opted for the Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track and later on did a few random comparisons with the Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track for the purpose of this review.

The Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track should test the muscles of your audio system. During the second half of Written By, there are a couple of scenes where things really heat up, and you are likely going to have to reach for your remote to make sure that your neighbors remain asleep. Indeed, the bass is powerful, the rear channels used quite a bit, and the high frequencies not overdone. The dialog is crisp and easy to follow. There are no disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review.

The Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track and the Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 tracks are identical. In terms of dynamics and fluidity, I did not detect any gaps between the two. The dialog is just as crisp and clear on the Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track as it is on the Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track.

For the record, Mei Ah have provided optional Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese and English subtitles. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.
