Universal brings "No Time to Die" to the UHD format with a very impressive 2160p/Dolby Vision UHD presentation. The level of clarity and detail is amazing. Film grain is present and it’s very fine. The black levels are especially strong in this presentation, staying deep and inky with great detail. This is one of the best looking UHD films out there.
| Audio |
The audio is an English Dolby Atmos track. The dialogue is crystal clear and is firmly locked to the center speaker. The surround action-packed sequences that go in every direction from gunfire whizzing by, helicopters flawlessly panning overhead, vehicles zooming by and debris convincingly raining down directly above the listening area. The bass is aggressive, but also balanced.

HADDONFIELD’S OPEN WOUNDS - Those who die at the hands of Michael Myers are not his only victims. We look at some of the returning characters, and why their past traumatic encounters with The Shape made them natural candidates to try and defend Haddonfield against him.
THE KILL TEAM - It takes a big team to create a film the scale of HALLOWEEN KILLS, especially when part of the task is raising the bar for Michael's gruesome kills. We hear the people behind the mayhem discuss how they continue to push the franchise to new heights.
STRODE FAMILY VALUES - Filmmakers and cast discuss the three generations of Strode women that have been terrorized by The Shape, and the roles Laurie, Karen and Allyson play in trying to vanquish his evil.
1978 TRANSFORMATIONS - Shooting new footage that matches the feel of the iconic 1978 footage is no easy task, and even takes a little bit of luck. We reveal some of the secrets of how filmmakers achieved these stunning sequences.
THE POWER OF FEAR - The impact of Michael Myers' pure evil extends far beyond his victims. We examine how fear of The Shape changed the psychology of the people of Haddonfield.

Universal has given us a stunning visual and audio presentation. "No Time To Die" is an excellent sendoff for one of the best James Bonds in Bond history. With Christmas just coming around the corner, I would recommend you ask Santa to put this under your tree. Highly Recommend.
