"Point Break" stars Keanu Reeves as a rookie FBI agent who's talked into going undercover and joining a group of renegade surfers. His partner (Busey) thinks the guys are actually a band of criminals, but once among them, it's hard not be drawn to their charismatic leader (Swayze) and the life he leads. (Tricia Spears)
Like the previously released DVD, the anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a generally satisfying picture, with images that are sharp and nicely detailed, though some scenes appear a bit smeared. Despite a slightly dark character, the colors are well balanced, with accurate flesh tones, rich hues, and deep blacks. The source element is revealing of film grain and artifacts throughout. (Danny Richelieu)
The previously released DVD included two encodings, one 5.1-channel DTS
Reason #83 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because itís simply one of the most intelligent sources of A/V information, both in terms of format and content. Product reviews are honest and thorough. I humbly admit that for the last two years I have been borrowing my brother-in-laws' copies of WSR when he was finished reading them. I am now happy to report that as of last week, I am an official subscriber of WSR and will be for many years to come. I have not been in the Custom A/V industry very long (two years), but I have spent the last 12 years in the computer and networking world, and I know thoughtful, well-sourced copy when I read it. I have come to trust WSR's reviews as a benchmark from which I form many opinions. The hard work of each reviewer makes each of us who reads it a much more credible source of information for our clients. A mentor of mine once told me that no one person has all the answers. The trick is knowing who you should listen to, and WSR has proved itself worthy month after month.
