Twilight Time turns out another fine release, worth the premium
20 September 2014
Excerpt: If you're reading this, you're probably already familiar with Twilight Time. They are a blu-ray distribution company only, which means they don't do remasters or restorations, they just release the films on BD with the prints the studio loaned them. That said, The Killer Elite looks fantastic, almost as good as their release of Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. Grain structure is intact yet unobtrusive and colors are vibrant but not unnatural.
Excerpt: This is a great looking picture for a 40 year old movie, I was not expecting it to look this good. The audio is a little on the quiet side, so I had to crank up the volume to hear it clearly. Shame it's only mono and not a 5.1 track. I was buying this for the movie only but there's also a nice selection of extras on the disc. This comes highly recommended if your a Peckinpah or Caan fan. If your into 70's espionage thrillers it's a fun viewing.
Excerpt: When comparing the PQ of this to my DVD version, the Blu Ray is much improved; you'll notice it right away..however, the English Audio has French Subtitles that will need to be turned off w/ your "Subtitle" button on your remote, rather than the more common way of turning subtitles on/off in the Audio setup....
