Once again , my review is about the Blu-Ray and not the film its self.. I was a little duboius at fist as this film has allot of old NASA film stock cut into the film and mixing that with moden filmstock would give obvoius drawbacks when creating a perfect 1080 P picture that runs smoothly. That said , I ate my words because this transfur is indeed close to perfection.. The resolution has been sharpend to a tee and the the colour looks vibrant catching the time period of the 1960's Eastman colour used in almost all moives and polaroids of that time. The space effects now look sharper and REAL , with deeper backs and moon shots better than any genuine image taken through-out the late 1960's and early 70's. Allot of work has gone into improoving the final print and it works. The sound also is crisp with the now standard DTS HD master , then given the 5.1 domestic finshing to set your frontroom wall shaking during "blast off"..!
But for me the detail in costume and prop's always gives me the most pleasure , the fabrics weave can be seen in the sweaters ,and even the time can be clearly seen on all of the lovely OMEGA watch's worn by the crew and NASA staff. I great movie improoved to a FANTASTIC movie , worth the money and the 1080 treatmant !!
