One problem. The description for it, both on amazon and netflix, having nothing to do with the actual film. There is no "eight immortals" mentioned in the movie at all. Ever.
The film will be released on Blu-ray and DVD courtesy of Well Go USA Entertainment in March 2013.
"The Great Magician" is presented in 1080p High Definition. The film is presented in 16:9 widescreen and picture quality is very good. From close-up details and seeing the textures on the clothing, visual effects such as flames/fires and computer generated smoke look good especially outdoor scenes in which colors are vibrant. Skin tones look natural and black levels are nice and deep. Overall, picture quality is very good!
AUDIO & SUBTITLES:
"The Great Magician" is presented in Mandarin (Original) and English DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio and Mandarin and English 2.0. Both Mandarin and English lossless tracks feature good surround sound activity. Live shows inside the theater during a magic performance utilizes audience clapping through the surround channels, fireworks come alive through the surround channels as well as ambiance. Also, music is utilized through the surround channels. Dialogue is crystal clear as with the musical score by Leon Ko.
But a action fantasy film that with plenty of surround activity, especially during the action scenes towards the end of the film.
Subtitles are in English.Read more ›
It started out looking to be a standard type of film, but as it progressed and I was able to follow the story line, the funnier it got.
By the end of the movie, I was laughing out loud. The "magic" in this film is really great and realistic.
A very well done film and I plan to watch it again. It is really well done.
The performance of Tony Leung Chiu Wai is beyond any doubt. Overall I like the movie very much.
