The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a gritty texture, and with unconvincing black levels, the imagery can look flat and undefined. Details often look soft, occasionally even looking smeared. Shadow delineation is generally lacking in the near blacks, with details in these portions of the image looking crushed. Colors can be adequately well saturated and natural-looking, and contrast is balanced well. Whites are nicely balanced, showing good detail without noticeable crush and no blooming. Edge enhancement is apparent, and source element and compression artifacts can be recognized throughout. (Danny Richelieu)
