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)
Reason #60 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I feel the picture/sound reviews are very accurate. The reference systems are awesome. The WSR staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The on-line version of the magazine is a great reference tool. It is the most technically advanced home theatre magazine out there. If you consider yourself a serious home theatre buff, you should subscribe! It doesn't get anymore cutting edge than your Reference Holosonic Home Theatre Laboratory. Gary Reber has the coolest job on the planet!
