Sound and Vision:
The image quality is really superb. Congratulations to RCV as there are no compression errors, grain, print damage or anything. Colors are bright, level of black is solid, contrast and sharpness are perfect.
The disc is delivered with a DTS track which is warm and dynamic with lots of use of the subwoofer and rear channels. Lots of effects but they don’t interfere with the dialogues which are nicely positioned at the center speaker. Great work!
Only three trailers: Van God Los, Chicago and Gangs of New York (2.18 minuten)
Bulletproof Monk is a very entertaining action movie which RCV has appropriately accompanied with a DTS track. Technically the disk is great but the extras are really worth nothing. I would have loved to see a Making Of or something. Still, definitely worth checking out for people who like some action accompanied with a little sense of humour
