Special features on Disc One of the two-disc DVD set include eight deleted scenes; the following featurettes: Birth Of The Shadowman (two minutes), Becoming Sydney (five minutes), Shadow World: Seeing The Dead (nine minutes), and The Eye: An Explosive Finale (six minutes); the original theatrical trailer; and additional previews. Disc Two contains a digital copy of this film.
Sydney Wells (Alba) is a successful violinist who has been blind since the age of five. Her years of darkness are coming to an end, as a cornea donor is found, enabling Sydney to undergo a vision-restoring operation. With the operation deemed a success, Sydney soon begins to see again
The anamorphically enhanced 2.32:1 DVD exhibits a desaturated appearance, which combines with the cool color scheme to give it a spectral appearance. Black levels are elevated slightly, but not distractingly so. Shadow delineation is nicely rendered, helping create a nice sense of depth. Contrast is fairly well balanced, but the image overall seems too dim. Fleshtones also have a greenish hue, with unnaturally saturated highlights. Infrequent dirt speckles are noticeable throughout, and edge enhancement is subtle, but neither are overly distracting. Resolution is solid, and the image looks clean of compression artifacts.(Danny Richelieu)
Reason #64 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
As a newbie to widescreen TVs and all they can be equipped with, I have been overwhelmed. Your magazine brings together a wealth of information for the new guy as well as the old dog. It has helped me pick out what home theatre products are right for me, as well as in my price range. I enjoy learning about these new products and different terms for their capabilities every month.
