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 #123 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read WSR for the articles—honest. Terry Paullin's industry insight is refreshing and lively. The lack of comparisons of which home theatre-in-a-box is best or which sub $200 DVD player is best leaves more room for in-depth product and movie reviews. Most importantly, though, I read WSR for the caricature of Gary Reber morphed on to the movie featured on the cover in the Editor's Couch page. Pierce Brosnan had better watch out!
