The sound quality is pretty good for DVD with no distortion, clear dialogue and had good bassy tones in the sound track.

Picture Quality

Disc Format: DVD

Just like the sound quality the picture quality is pretty good for DVD. Sharp on close-ups colors pop and skin tones look good. As with DVD distant shots are more smooth and overall has a tad bit of a dull look as with all DVDs compared to Blu-Ray

My Thoughts

Blood Punch sounds like a horror movie but it’s not but I will say It has a Horror Element with Death and gore. It’s a cross of Breaking Bad and Groundhog Day. Drugs, hard trips, death, and a day that keeps recurring makes for a nice story-line. When someone dies, the body doesn’t disappear and remains the next day even when the person has re spawned and I have to say its a Fun View.

Story line has some good concepts with the mixing of cooking and selling drugs with the Groundhog Day factor mixed in made things fun. Gore was good but not a ton, Now it’s not ground breaking and or a blockbuster or even close to being as fun as Groundhog Day but it does hold its own. The budget of the film can’t be in the 10 million dollar range and I think it’s a low-budget film but looks good and acting wise is a decent as the story making the low-budget factor hardly visible.

Overall the film was enjoyable and I loved the concept. Of course things gets a tad slow and or over the top but all in all the film held my attention the whole time. I feel its re-watchable which makes this film a good buy.

With that said I give the film a 4 out of 5. If you think mixing breaking bad with Groundhog Day sounds fun. Then you should check this out.

Note: I Know my speakers are way outdated. OPPO Blu-Ray Player is one of the best around and used in most home theaters. The Receiver is pretty good but on the line of out dated. Subwoofer is good with tons of bass but not the theater quality from a $400 Sub. Front speakers are fun with tons of power and are good for standalone’s but higher end sound (Hz) is lower quality. Overall I need to update on all speakers granted I do get decent sound out of them just the higher end falls short.
