A View to a Kill

 (1985)

A View to a Kill Blu-ray delivers great video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

When James Bond (Agent 007) is sent to investigate a security leak at the high-tech Zorin Industries, he discovers a hotbed of murder and deception. The company's mysterious owner, Max Zorin has devised a plan to corner the world's microchip market--even if he has to kill millions to do it. But before Bond can stop Zorin, he must confront the madman's beautiful and deadly companion May Day. With help from the gorgeous Stacey, Bond launches an all-out assault on Zorin's deadly scheme, which leads to a treacherous duel against May Day on the upper spans of the Golden Gate Bridge.

A View to a Kill Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

A View to a Kill may be one of the worst Bond movies, but the talented folks at Lowry Digital haven't withheld any of their powers here, delivering an impressive 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer of their recent restoration. The result is a picture that easily outclasses prior standard definition editions in every category. Clarity is greatly improved, with finer detail visible in every frame and closeups that reveal skin textures, clothing fabrics, and the minute accents of the film's props. The color palette is less stylized and creamy—for a lack of a better word—from the Bond films of the '60s and '70s, but the more realistic look suits the times and is reproduced perfectly here, with sufficiently dense hues, deep blacks, and good contrast. Most importantly, Lowry hasn't tampered with the film's 35mm grain structure; there's no overt digital noise reduction here, and no edge enhancement or other unnecessary tweaks to the picture. Everything looks natural and true to source, and the print is spotless, with no age-related specks, scratches, or brightness fluctuations. The encode is solid too, unhindered by compression issues. Another great Bond reissue on Blu-ray.


A View to a Kill Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Like the other Bond films, A View to A Kill's original stereo sound mix has been effectively reworked into a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, keeping the same effects but adding an appreciable sense of immersion for those with multi-channel home theater setups. Most of the action still emerges from the front speakers, but the rears do pipe up frequently to deliver ambience and directional precision. Racetrack chatter. Potent gunshots. Whirring helicopter blades. Massive explosions. Zipping cars. The 5.1 presentation really befits John Barry's score—which adds 1980s percussive synth sounds to the usual Bond orchestration—and the title song by Duran Duran. Over it all, dialogue is always clear, well-balanced, and easy to understand. The disc includes the original mix via a Dolby Digital 2.0 track, along with numerous dub and subtitle options for those who might need or want them.
