When Egyptian-born chemical engineer, Anwar El-Ibrahimi (Metwally) mysteriously disappears on a trans-Atlantic flight from South Africa to Washington D.C., his American wife Isabella (Witherspoon) desperately tries to locate her husband. Anwar is swept away on one of the C.I.A.
The anamorphically enhanced 2.34:1 DVD shows nicely rendered details, with fine textures resolved well. The color palette can be devoid of excessively vibrant colors, but color balance is nicely rendered and fleshtones look natural. Contrast is slightly overblown, but black levels are deep and the image generally appears pleasingly dimensional. Pixel breakup can be noticed from time to time, and edge enhancement can be recognized over the higher contrast transitions, but generally this is an enjoyable presentation. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #76 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Our family has made a significant investment in a dedicated home theatre. Upon reading nearly every other home theatre publication, I have found that Widescreen Review has consistently provided us accurate reviews, and as such have built a substantial library of movies and equipment, which we consider “Keepers.” I find the equipment reviews, especially the Subwoofer Special Edition, to be right on the money and a must-have. The video equipment reviews (we are currently in the market for a front projector) are educationally based as well as comparatively based, so I learn about equipment in general while I can compare specifications. I thank you for a publication well worth the cover price issue after issue.
