DVD General Information
Universal Studios Home Entertainment
Strong bloody violence, pervasive language and some drug use.
When a hit in London goes terribly awry Ray (Farrell) and Ken (Gleeson), two Irish assassins, are instructed to go lay low In Bruges Belgium. Whilst on the lam in one of Europe's most picturesque medieval cities, the two accidental tourists encounter an American dwarf on horse tranquilizers, a hot drug-dealing girl who rips off tourists on occasion, and one very angry crime boss looking to settle a score. (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.34:1 DVD delivers nicely rendered shadow detail and solid black levels, but fleshtones can look greenish and sickly. The color scheme is rather cold, and colors are desaturated. The image can also look somewhat washed out, but details are captured and delivered well. Resolution is quite good, with fine details delivered well. Edge enhancement is not a major distraction, but shimmering and crawling artifacts can be distracting. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #112 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
The first thing that grabbed my interest was the DVD reviews. But after I purchased that first issue and read the reviews, I got hooked on all of the other information contained in each issue. I had adopted the DVD format fairly early on, and I have had a strong preference for widescreen, dating back to my VHS days. The technical information is a godsend. I feel that I have saved so much money by avoiding inferior quality DVDs. I was very ignorant about the technology out there for home theatre and was not aware of the resources I had that were really going to waste. (5.1 in my movie collection) I read and read and read and finally updated my antiquated system. It is such a wonderful joy to turn down the lights, turn up the sound, and enjoy movies more than I ever could at a theatre. I knew it was worth it even more when my wife said, “Cool” as we watched The Others with true surround sound. Widescreen Review has actually helped improve my quality of life!
