The anamorphically enhanced 2.30:1 DVD has a desaturated look, awash in earthy hues of brown. Resolution is generally good, but the imagery often looks somewhat smeared and soft. Black levels are slightly milky, with the entire image often looking somewhat washed out. Shadow delineation is not great, as the near-black portions of the video can look crushed. Edge enhancement is not overly obtrusive, and the print is very clean. (Danny Richelieu)
