The anamorphically enhanced 2.38:1 DVD exhibits deep blacks with good shadow delineation, which helps create a very dimensional-looking image. Colors are bold and vibrant, and while details are generally captured well, the picture can look slightly soft at times. Dark scenes look great, but daytime scenes can often look somewhat washed out. Pixel breakup can be noticed in bright scenes, and shimmering and edge enhancement can be somewhat distracting at times. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #123 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read WSR for the articles—honest. Terry Paullin's industry insight is refreshing and lively. The lack of comparisons of which home theatre-in-a-box is best or which sub $200 DVD player is best leaves more room for in-depth product and movie reviews. Most importantly, though, I read WSR for the caricature of Gary Reber morphed on to the movie featured on the cover in the Editor's Couch page. Pierce Brosnan had better watch out!
