  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
High-living Boston Rebels

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.37:1 DVD exhibits fairly solid black levels and good shadow delineation, although the image can look somewhat flat at times. Color fidelity is fairly good and fleshtones look natural. Resolution is generally good, but there are many instances when the imagery can look soft and under-defined. Contrast is nicely balanced for the most part, but occasionally whites can look slightly overblown. Compression artifacts can be distracting fairly often. (Danny Richelieu)
