Robert Angier (Jackman) and Alfred Borden (Bale) are competing magicians who share a common goal: to be the best hand-is-quicker-than-the-eye master of them all. But when one man appears to be better than the other, jealousy and obsession strike, and the rivalry that was once friendly turns into anything but. The Prestige is based on the novel by Christopher Priest. (Tricia Spears)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits bold colors, warm fleshtones, and well-captured details, creating a very pleasing picture. Black levels are deep, and details in the shadows are captured well. While contrast is generally well balanced, whites can be slightly bloomy. During night scenes, the image can have a greenish hue, although, for whatever reason, it seems to be a conscious choice by the filmmakers. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #65 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it is an informative source on A/V equipment and entertainment. The many excellent reviews on DVDs (and Laser Discs, back in the day), as well as surround music, have led me to some real gems!
