About this deal

The overheads aren’t used particularly aggressively, with discrete effects few and far between – however, they are used to provide a wonderful sense of immersion to the entire soundstage almost constantly. By using this service you thereby indemnify this Company, its employees, agents and affiliates against any loss or damage, in whatever manner, howsoever caused.

Fine detail is exemplary, outside of some of the softness around the edge of the image inherent with the Panavision lenses and shooting style utilised. The packaging itself is sleek and elegant, reflecting the sophistication of the James Bond franchise. The image is clear and sharp, and with the film getting a whole dual layer disc to itself, there’s no visible signs of compression or the like. At just 15 minutes shy of three hours, this is the longest Bond film, but it certainly doesn’t feel that way.He fill the movie with great action and stunts throughout it just simply has you glued to your seats. Besides, we’ve all waited far too long for Daniel Craig’s final Bond movie, with it delayed for almost two years because of the Covid pandemic, so that it could finally open in cinemas, just as all big tentpole movies should. Although this steelbook release is very cool, sadly the blu ray side of this set does not include any extras.

We get some beautiful locations that are used as stunning canvases for these, from the Italian mountain town of Matera to the fog-shrouded forests of Langvann, Norway and onto the concrete beauty of the island lair in the Sea of Japan by way of the vibrant party town of Santiago de Cuba. The picture on this film on 4K is outstanding, one of the best I've seen so far and I am rarely glad to add this to the collection.The stunning visuals, vivid colors, and crisp details truly bring the action to life, immersing you in the world of espionage and intrigue. Following the yellow stain of Spectre, I was glad to see that No Time To Die had a more subtle approach to its colour grading. for part of the film it really is bad writing that such an iconic character has had such an awful story telling for the last 15 years. The HDR10 layer worked superbly on this reviewer’s projector too, with no noticeable issues that have plagued several other recent releases on their HDR10 layers.

But the origin of that weapon lies close to home, and sows an internal conflict within the corridors of MI6.and crew interviews and beautiful footage to look at the globetrotting story that unfolds in the film. The film uses different colour schemes depending on the location, with the sun-drenched climes of rural Italy in the opening scenes looking wonderfully hot and bright but never painfully so, and never at the expense of the shadows and darkness in these sequences. The HDR and WCG is also used to nicely enhance the already superb image – it doesn’t feel mega-aggressive but it feels like it’s been used to again bring that extra touch of life to the image. This thrilling installment of the iconic franchise is a masterpiece, and watching it in high-definition on Blu-ray adds a whole new level of cinematic experience.

Unlike most chapters in the series, Craig’s tenure has focused on serialized storytelling, with 2006’s “Casino Royale” sending 007 down a rabbit hole of secret organizations and personal betrayals, which culminated in the reveal of iconic adversary Blofeld in 2015’s “Spectre.In a lesser film, these issues could have been fatal, but because No Time To Die is more about the characters, about Bond in particular, characters that the film has taken pains to get the audience invested in, that it’s possible to dismiss the film’s flaws and just revel in what it gets right, which it does so for most of its runtime. Bought blu-ray version for my dad for Christmas and it didn’t work, sent out a replacement and that also didn’t work. Film grain is present and it’s very fine – check out the sequence visiting the pristine white walls of MI6 at the 1 hour 20-minute mark, for a lovely example of how fine and well resolved the grain is.
