  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Seven employees of Palisade Defense, global suppliers of innovative weaponry for the past 75 years, set out for a team-building weekend at the company

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits nicely resolved details and fairly good color balance, although occasionally images can look somewhat blown out. Black levels, similarly, are rather milky, which can make images look flat and dimensionless. Low average bit rates can cause the image to look harsh and pixilated, but edge enhancement is not overly distracting. (Danny Richelieu)
