Jack Stanfield (Ford...fun trivia: how many times has Harrison Ford played a "Jack" character?) is an executive of a financial institution who is confident that the Firewall for his online banking services is inpenetrable. However, when he is approached by Bill Cox (Bettany), he learns there is a flaw in his system...and Cox and his cohorts are hell bent on taking a withdrawal. WIth Stanfield's family under siege, Jack must think fast to save their lives. (Suzanne Hodges)
The anamoprhically enhanced 2.38:1 DVD picture looks great, with well-balanced colors, sharp and detailed images, and few distractions other than the occasional, minor pixel breakup. Still, the SD DVD pales in comparison to the high-definition imagery available on the HD DVD. (Suzanne Hodges)
The surround channels are generally only used as a low level extension of music and the occasional atmospheric effect, which is a disappointment. While the front stage can be amply engaging, the surround channels are not used with enough vigor to make a solid contribution to the DVD

I like to be as knowledgeable as possible with today's technologies, and Widescreen Review really has the potential to help me do that. I am looking forward to getting my first issue soon.
