Video: How Does the Disc Look?
Forget about it. Roger Deakins has been winning many year-end awards for his cinematography, and this pitch-perfect 2.40:1 1080p transfer is proof positive that he deserves every one. This is one gorgeous-looking action film, and this Blu-ray edition presents it with exceptional accuracy. Compression artifacting and aliasing and banding are non-issues, black levels are supple and inky throughout, and detail accuracy is sensationally vivid and well-defined. The movie’s dynamic color presence also is a knockout in high-def. Reference-quality all the way.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mix included here is just as magnificent. Dialogue, atmospherics, music, effects – every single element of Skyfall’s soundscape has a lush, firm presence on this lossless track. Surrounds kick in early and often, dynamic range is exceptionally panoramic, and high- and low-ends come through beautifully. No complaints whatsoever.
Spanish, French, and Ukranian Dolby Digital 5.1, English Dolby Digital 5.1 Descriptive, and Italian and Russian DTS 5.1 tracks are included, as are English SDH, French, Estonian, Danish, Italian, Finnish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Mandarin, Norwegian, Russian, Swedish, and Ukranian subtitles.
