3.0 out of 5 stars Great film, shame about the Blu-ray quality, 25 Oct 2011
This review is from: 14 Blades [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I don't need to repeat the rave reviews about the story or Donnie Yen's master performance. But I did want to mention the very poor transfer to Blu-ray. There are stunning set pieces spoiled due to over-sharpening. White fringes around any detail is a tell-tale sign that someone thought they could give us BLu-ray quuality just by applying sharpening to a DVD version without going back to the master film and starting from scratch. Really dissapointing, and the film looks much better upscalled from DVD in a BLu-ray player. I strongly advise you not to waste your money on the Blu-ray version - it's one of the seemingly increasing number of cheap video/DVD conversions to Blu-ray that are steadily giving HD a bad name.

I have to disagree as it is by far the best quality blu ray image i have ever seen, i do however agree that in some places the image was too sharp but that is not actually a problem.
