Diamonds Are Forever Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Like's it's new-to-Blu-ray predecessors, You Only Live Twice and On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Diamonds Are Forever looks fantastic in high definition, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer restored by Lowry Digital. I'd even say these late '60s, early '70s Bond films look better than the Brosnan-era ones. (Especially the heavily DNR'd GoldenEye.) Diamonds' print is practically spotless, and the image seems entirely natural and faithful to its 35mm source, with no heavy noise reduction or visible edge enhancement. The anamorphic lensing yields a picture that's often terrifically sharp—the screen shots give don't quite do it justice—and compared side-by-side to the DVD, the level of clarity is greatly improved, with finer detail in facial features, closeups of props, and clothing textures. The sunny desert color scheme is handled beautifully too, with clean blues and well-saturated sand, balanced skin tones and spot-on contrast. Finally, sitting on a dual-layer disc, the film is free of compression issues. You really couldn't ask for more.


Diamonds Are Forever Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Along with the other vintage films in the series—made before multi-channel soundscapes were the norm—the original audio elements of Diamonds Are Forever have been lightly expanded into a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. The results are satisfying, giving the film a newly immersive quality that especially heightens the action sequences. Diamonds isn't quite as engaging, audio-wise, as some of its predecessors, with most of the output still anchored up front, but the rear channels are used occasionally for ambience and effects. A helicopter moving between channels. Circus clamor. Insect sounds in the desert. You the idea. The 5.1 mix has the biggest effect on composer John Barry's score, which now fills all speakers when it swells and surges, and the innuendo-laced title song, sung by Shirley Bassey, who was brought back after Goldfinger. Dialogue is consistently clear and easy to understand, and the disc includes several dub and subtitle options; see above for details.
