Kiss Me Deadly

 (1955)

Kiss Me Deadly Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

In this atomic adaptation of Mickey Spillane’s novel, directed by Robert Aldrich, the good manners of the 1950s are blown to smithereens. Ralph Meeker stars as snarling private dick Mike Hammer, whose decision one dark, lonely night to pick up a hitchhiking woman sends him down some terrifying byways. Brazen and bleak, Kiss Me Deadly is a film noir masterpiece as well as an essential piece of cold war paranoia, and it features as nervy an ending as has ever been seen in American cinema.

For more about Kiss Me Deadly and the Kiss Me Deadly Blu-ray release, see Kiss Me Deadly Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Ralph Meeker, Paul Stewart, Albert Dekker, Wesley Addy, Marjorie Bennett, Fortunio Bonanova

Kiss Me Deadly Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.67:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Robert Aldrich's Kiss Me Deadly arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"This new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from a 35mm fine-grain master positive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisor: Lee Kline.
Telecine colorist: Lee Kline, Gregg Garvin/Modern Videofilm, Los Angeles."

Throughout the years, Kiss Me Deadly was released on LD, VHS, and SDVD by various distributors. With Criterion's Blu-ray release, in my opinion, the quest for perfection ends. I believe that this would be the definitive release of this landmark American film for years to come.

Fine object detail and clarity are dramatically improved. In fact, so much so that there are portions of the film that I could not recognize. The soft, often blurry scenes from the old non-anamorphic MGM R1 SDVD release of the film now look crisp and vibrant. The many contrast fluctuations have also been addressed, while various color enhancements have been performed to give the film a fresher look. Furthermore, I did not see any signs of excessive sharpening. Aliasing and banding do no plague the high-definition transfer either. Some minor noise corrections have been applied, but they actually strengthen the overall very pleasing organic look. Lastly, there are no serious stability issues (not even random frame transition issues). All in all, this a solid release of a film that has never looked this good before. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Kiss Me Deadly Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The original monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from a 35mm optical track. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated workstation."

The English LPCM 1.0 track opens up the film quite well, though additional work on some of the mild background hiss could have been done. Still, the dialog is crisp, clean and easy to follow. I noticed that overall stability has been improved as well.
