  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
When terrorists go hi-tech and launch a massive computer attack intended to cripple the United State

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.36:1 DVD exhibits a sharp, detailed image, with solid blacks and good shadow delineation. While bold, vibrant colors do not make their way into the dark, cool color scheme often, the bright colors that are involved are undersaturated. Fleshtones have a pallid look for much of the time, but it appears to be a conscious choice made by the filmmakers, although there are times when fleshtones look flushed and too orange. Film grain structure is fine and consistent, but edge enhancement is recognizable.(Danny Richelieu)
