Speed Racer (Hirsch) is a natural at driving his family's racing creation, the Mach 5
The anamorphically enhanced 2.32:1 DVD delivers on the fantastically vibrant color scheme of the film, with deeply saturated, intensely bright colors that really pop from the screen. Black levels are deep and consistent, and shadows are delineated nicely. The source element appears very processed, with an unnaturally polished appearance. Fleshtones are too red, and contrast is somewhat overpumped. The entire image seems somewhat soft, and noticeable stairstepping and digitization can be distracting at times. Edge enhancement, luckily, is not noticeable. (Danny Richelieu)
