  • The Blu-ray of 'A Better Tomorrow' is a visual and auditory delight, though the remake pales dramatically compared to Woo's original iconic film.

  • Video: 72

  • A Better Tomorrow's Blu-ray presentation is a visual triumph, boasting an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1, featuring exceptional fine detail, robust color palette, solid black levels, and top-notch shadow delineation. Stunning location footage and masterful lighting create a strikingly beautiful crime thriller experience.

  • Audio: 80

  • A Better Tomorrow’s DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track excels with precise directionality and impactful LFE in action scenes, complemented by clear dialogue and refined ambient sound, making it an audiophile’s delight.

  • Extra: 45

  • The Extras provide brief, promotional insights into the cast and production, along with short featurettes discussing differences between the original and the remake, and include both the original and theatrical trailers.

  • Movie: 60

  • Despite the 2010 South Korean remake of 'A Better Tomorrow' being visually stunning with lush Thailand location footage and credible performances, it falls short of capturing the charm and action-packed intensity of John Woo’s 1986 original, feeling more like a generic Asian action film with overemphasis on melodrama.
