  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.37:1 animated DVD will show good resolution, but compression artifacts can make a mess of many scenes, which is a shame because the picture shows real promise at times. Black levels and shading in the shadows are well rendered, which can help provide good depth of field to the imagery. The color scheme is rather limited for an animated title, but the colors that are used can be bold and nicely saturated. Edge enhancement is minor, but can be a distraction at times.
