  • Video: 85

  • The 4K UHD Blu-ray of "The Valiant Ones" shines with a meticulous 4K restoration from the original 35mm negative. Displayed in native 3840 x 2160p resolution and encoded in HDR10 and Dolby Vision, it boasts vibrant colors and fine detail. Despite some grain and minor variances, the presentation is immersive and true to the film's period authenticity.

  • Audio: 80

  • The Valiant Ones features Mandarin LPCM mono audio with clear dialogue, well-realized sound effects, and a well-layered score. Despite some boxiness and slight brashness in higher frequencies, it plays well at reference with minimal distortion or hiss. Subtitles are clear, correctly formatted, and in British spelling.

  • Extra: 87

  • The 4K UHD Blu Ray of 'The Valiant Ones' is praised for its insightful new and archival interviews, including Frank Djeng's expert commentary and David Cairns’ video essay, all complemented by a well-crafted collector’s booklet with writing by Jonathan Clements and appealing packaging.

  • Movie: 82

  • The Valiant Ones is a visually stunning wuxia film by King Hu, blending historically accurate Ming Dynasty details with dynamic, grounded action scenes. With a straightforward plot and notable lack of character development, the 4K UHD Blu-ray offers engaging supplements including insightful commentary on Hu’s career and the Hong Kong vs. Taiwan film industry rivalry.
