    Ratio of the feature film:
    2.35:1

    Languages of the feature film:
    Dolby True HD 5.1: English
    Dolby 5.1: French, German, Italian, Castilian Spanish and Isolated score-track
    Dolby 2.0: Brazilian Portuguese and 3 commentaries (including Jodie Foster, Robert Zemeckis)

    Subtitles for all the videos:
    - French, Italian, Castilian Spanish, Dutch, Latin Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish.
    - German, Italian and English for the hard of hearings.

    Verdict:
    A very good picture with an excellent soundtrack. The film looks extremely good on this blu-ray.
    This film makes us wonder a very good question: Science or Religion. We all rely on our perceptions and instincts to make a judgement about where we live and what we are experiencing and yet, we are a long way to always have the evidence to prove what we live and feel.
    But which one to go for?
    It is up to you after watching this film. Enjoy!

    NB: Despite Jodie Foster speaking French very well. It is not Mrs. Foster who we hear in the French version of the film but instead it is Julie Dumas.
    It is one of the two films where Mrs. Foster does not dub herself.

    Subtitles for all the videos:
    German, French, Czech, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish and English for the hearing impaired

    Verdict:
    An excellent picture and sound quality (but why a 5.1 soundtrack whereas the film was the first of the Bond films to be mixed in 6.1 and released in Dolby EX and DTS-ES in the cinemas?).
    Once more the Lowry Company did an great job. Even whether it is a recent film, there is not any flaw and the CGI is very subtle or should I say unnoticeable!!
    On the other hand, we can see the stunt-double standing for Pierce Brosnan very often.
    For instance, he does drive the boat only for the close-up, therefore for all the other shoots you can notice the stuntmen as well as the helmet wore by one of them when the boat is turning upside down.
    Another example of that, the first shoot when Bond is hanging the rope fixed to the balloon, it is Pierce Brosnan but the second shoot, it is not.
    There are countless examples of doubles.
    Overall, thanks to the Blu-Ray, you can see all the qualities as well as the great sceneries and the stunt-doubles!!!
    Enjoy it!

    Verdict:
    The finale season, even better except the unexplained last episode, pity.
    Besides, some CGI scenes remain unfinished !!
    - During the finale battle between Superman and Lord Nor, the cables holding Dean Cain are visible when he lands in the street.
    - The X-ray and the "laser eyes" have not been added in post-prod for this same battle making the actors looking a wee bit ridiculous !!
    Nevertheless, the stories are very good and all fan of the Man of Steel will like them.
    Enjoy !

    Verdict:
    An outstanding picture and sound quality, the Lowry Company in charge of this restoration did an excellent job, this film couldn't have been watched in better condition than it is today. If you watch carefully, you should even notice:
    - the wire holding Micheal Lonsdale and the astronauts while in weightless conditions.
    - the "handles" of the spacecrafts when securing to the space-station.
