Skyfall Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Although I didn't keep count, I am sure that, of the many names behind the camera mentioned by director Sam Mendes in his commentary, none occurs more often than that of cinematographer Roger Deakins, whose spectacular digital photography on Skyfall allowed the film to be reframed for IMAX showing without being subjected to the IMAX DMR up-conversion process. While a debate has raged on internet forums over the preferred presentation of the film for home consumption, it is presented on Fox/MGM's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray at its standard 35mm ratio of 2.40:1. Perhaps an IMAX-formated version will follow as a bonus in one of the later, inevitable Blu-ray reissues.

Skyfall's image on Blu-ray is spectacular: clear, sharp, detailed and noiseless, with just a flicker of aliasing during the establishing shots of Shanghai (blink, and you may miss it). Deakins is a notorious perfectionist, and he was also one of the first cinematographers to switch to digital intermediates (with the Coen Bros.' O Brother, Where Art Thou?). If he can't get the lighting and color densities just so on the day, he gets what he wants on the DI. Skyfall is a symphony of different tones and palettes, from the chilly blues and milky whites of London to the emotional browns, greens, reds and (eventually) oranges of the Scottish sequences to the exotic primaries and fluorescents of Shanghai and Macau. And let's not forget the broken-down wreck of an island where Silva keeps his headquarters. Deakins' lighting of the rubble there recalls what he did with the snow in Fargo. A great cinematographer can make anything look interesting.

It's only to be expected that Fox/MGM would do a first-rate job on one of the jewels in the corporate crown. The fact that Skyfall was originated digitally no doubt eased the transition to Blu-ray. Overcompression would have been the only risk, given the film's running time, but fortunately no artifacts are visible.


Skyfall Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Skyfall's DTS-HD MA 5.1 track is more than equal to the obligatory big moments of a Bond film: the explosions, car chases and shootouts, not to mention the opening train chase involving a crane and various VW Beetles and a scene in the London Tube that recalls Die Hard 3. The sonic intensity of these sequences should satisfy any home theater action junkie, with their crisply defined surround effects, immersive surround field and deep bass extension.

But Skyfall's sound mixers have also achieved marvelous effects in quieter moments, including the near-silence that follows Eve's fateful shot in the opening sequence, which has the odd impact of seeming almost as loud as the din that preceded it. In his commentary, Mendes notes some of his favorite subtler moments: the way the rain outside M's office windows fades into the rush of the waterfall over which Bond descends after he falls from the train, then into Adele's title song, or a peculiar set of sounds (which Mendes says still give him the creeps) when Silva reveals to M and Bond a physical "peculiarity" (those who have seen the film will know what I'm referring to).

One could simply listen to Skyfall with the picture switched off, and the experience would still be thrilling. The environments are always well-defined, the action always fully expressed, and yet somehow Mendes and his sound team never lose track of the essential drama in which Bond, M, Silva and the rest are caught up. Their dialogue gets the same respectful treatment as the sound effects. So does the score by composer Thomas Newman, entering the Bond franchise for the first time at Mendes' specific request and proving surprisingly adept as an action film composer. Radically altering his style from such previous Mendes creations as American Beauty or Road to Perdition, Newman has adapted well to the needs of Bond, while retaining a distinctive voice. His music is one of the many elements that makes Bond at 50 feel forever young.
