Moonraker

 (1979)

Moonraker Blu-ray despite great video and audio falls short as a Blu-ray release

When a U.S. space shuttle is stolen in a midair abduction, only James Bond (Agent 007) can find the evil genius responsible. The clues point to billionaire Hugo Drax, who has devised a scheme to destroy all human life on earth. As Bond races against time to stop Drax's evil plot, he joins forces with Dr. Holly Goodhead, a NASA scientist who is as beautiful as she is brilliant. And 007 needs all the help he can get, for Drax's henchman is none other than Bond's old nemesis Jaws, the indestructible steel-toothed giant. Their adventure leads them all the way to a colossal, orbiting space station, where the stage is set for an epic battle which will determine the fate of all mankind.

Moonraker Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

As the latest Bond film to receive the Lowry Digital restoration treatment, Moonraker looks better than ever on Blu-ray. The film has been duly scrubbed and cleaned; it looks fabulous. MGM has brought this restored version to Blu-ray featuring a stellar AVC Mpeg-4 transfer in full 1080p, while maintaining the film's original aspect ratio of 2.40:1.

Moonraker will immediately impress with its accurate flesh tones, robust color palette and smooth film-like appearance. Black levels and contrast are also well presented, if occasionally a bit on the lighter side. Detail is also noticeably improved from previous DVD versions; architectural and fabric details are satisfying, while never overly sharp. Fortunately, digital artifacts are absent from the presentation; macroblocking, ringing, edge enhancement and banding were never noticeable. Moonraker isn't quite as large an upgrade as the phenomenal Goldfinger and Thunderball restorations, but it still manages to be appealing from a visual standpoint. From a purely visual standpoint, Moonraker has never looked better and is recommended.


Moonraker Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Like every other James Bond film thus released on Blu-ray, Moonraker has been given a serious overhaul in the audio department. Upgraded from the decidedly low-fi standards of its seventies-era production, Moonraker has been graced with a spruced up and modernized lossless 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack. While many of the movie's elements still suffer from less than ideal recording techniques, this lossless track offers a substantial upgrade over any previously released version of the film.

As one would expect, the many action sequences present in Moonraker represent the most noticeable improvements in the film. Fans will also note that dialogue is clearer and more easily discerned. The film benefits by being presented with a larger and more convincing soundstage, featuring an abundance of directional effects. Moonraker will never equal a more modern action soundtrack, but this Blu-ray does offer a substantial upgrade that will continue to please those who have harbored higher hopes for the film's soundtrack.
