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 #132 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
As an owner of Whole House Audio & Video Inc. (WHAV), I need to stay informed on the latest DVD and DVHS releases and keep an objective opinion on how well they perform. Of all the magazines and periodicals we receive, I constantly find myself reading WIDESCREEN REVIEW over all the others combined. The articles are well-written, thought-out, and accurate. I also find the Editors Couch and the equipment reviews very useful and informative. Thanks for producing a quality magazine without all the BS you find in most other publications.
