Hues of blue and red in the anamorphically enhanced 1.81:1 DVD have an over-saturated appearance that make them really pop from the screen, even if they look somewhat unnatural. When combined with the tones of brown, green, and yellow that make up the majority of the color palette, the bold colors can have a striking effect. Black levels are deep, but shadow delineation is not rendered very well. Edge enhancement is noticeable throughout, and there are times when pixel breakup can also be seen. (Danny Richelieu)
