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 #67 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review is by far the most in-depth and comprehensive publication in its genre. Readers of all levels of expertise can increase their knowledge and enhance their enjoyment of the Home Theatre experience. Widescreen Review is one of the few, if not the only publication, that actually affects manufacturer’s decisions in regards to their product lines. I believe one of the reasons DTS decoding is so common in consumer equipment is due to the efforts of Gary Reber and his associates. Additionally, the magazine has heralded the importance of a properly calibrated video monitor. Consumers who are so inclined now have the information needed in order for their equipment, from entry level to state-of-the-art, to be the best that it can be. Add to this the software reviews, articles on emerging technologies, and meticulous equipment reviews, and you have a magazine that sets the standard for others to emulate. This is why I read Widescreen Review.
