While sitting in front of a campfire in the snow-covered mountains, Gideon (Brosnan) is surprised to hear gunshots. Realizing that he has been hit, Gideon wonders who could be shooting at him and why. And what he discovers is that Carver (Neeson), an old acquaintance from the war, is on a quest for revenge for something that Gideon did to him years ago in Seraphim Falls. (Tricia Spears)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.38:1 DVD features a well-balanced gray scale, making it easy to see details in the deepest blacks as well as the brightest whites. Black levels are not as deep as the best releases, though, which can make the picture look hazy and flat. Colors, including fleshtones, look natural, but minor edge enhancement can be noticed.

Reason #131 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read it because I need it! For an avid audio/video enthusiast such as myself, Widescreen Review literally blows away the competition in terms of technical expertise and professional journalism when covering the world of cinema. Whether it is for the home or the local movie theatre, the magazine's articles are the most complete from my experience. This is particularly evident with topics that are covered over multiple issues. Instead of what could be a brief overview, there appears to be a journalistic determination to “do it right or don't do it at all” attitude from the very beginning. There are three key factors that I believe contribute to this achievement. One is the amount of research you do, and you do it with a resolve to touch as many bases as possible. Two is the amount of preparation that goes into each article or review, which most readers only get to read the tip of the iceberg as a finely polished product. Finally, your passion for the field you cover is as great or greater than that of your readers.
