DVD General Information
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment
For sequences of intense action violence, some language and brief sexuality
With his mother having abandoned him at the age of five, David Rice (Christensen) is faced with a rather grim home life, living alone with his depressed father William (Rooker). One day David finds a way out of his dead-end existence by using the power of his mind to teleport him to faraway destinations. With his powers, David soon learns to transport himself in and out of bank vaults, making him rich beyond his wildest dreams. The feeling that this is too good to be true turns prophetic when a mysterious man named Roland (Jackson) begins investigating David's bank heist. Roland is revealed as a paladin, an avowed enemy of all time Jumpers, and threatens to destroy David and those like him. Based on the novel by Steven Gould. (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.32:1 DVD shows solid resolution, although occasionally shots are soft. Black levels are deep and consistent, and shadow detail is nicely presented. Source element artifacts are rare, and fleshtones generally appear natural. Color fidelity is impressive, with pleasing saturation, and contrast is balanced well. Edge enhancement can be recognized, though, especially over high-contrast transitions.(Danny Richelieu)
Reason #49 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Reading Widescreen Review for the past four years has been a liberating experience for me. Issue after issue you continue to write the most intelligent, full depth, and logical reviews and you do not pull any punches. I've bought many of my home theatre items after reading about them in WSR, and I must say they perform exactly as you have written in your reviews. I'll be a customer for a long, long time. Thanks for a great magazine.
