  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Mr. Fantastic Dr. Reed (Gruffudd) and Invisible Woman Sue Storm (Alba) are busy planning their upcoming wedding when a mysterious alien

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.38:1 DVD can look very good, with good shadow delineation and well-captured details. Black levels can be slightly murky, but contrast is balanced well and colors are bold and vibrant. Fleshtones have a subtly pink tone, but color fidelity is generally natural. Source element artifacts are not noticeable, but compression artifacts and edge enhancement can become problematic. (Danny Richelieu)
