That fantastmagorical, fuel burning oracle ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ soars onto UK Region free Blu-ray with a truly scrumptious 1080p AVC/Mpeg-4 transfer framed in the 70mm widescreen 2.20:1 aspect ratio. The movie looks absolutely spotless with great colour, contrast and detail throughout. The image has a solidity and depth that makes you want to step right into it.
The audio has been remixed into DTS-HD MA 7.1 surround and brings life and depth to the musical numbers, while dialogue is crisp throughout. Listen out for the opening roar of car engines.
An interesting collection of vintage featurettes, trailers and a recent interview with Dick Van Dyke round off the package nicely.
As a movie, it’s great fun with Dick Van Dyke, Sally Ann Howes, Gert Frobe and a host of 1960’s British character actors in the Ian Fleming musical tale of the flying car. Fly off to Vulgaria tonight!
