The anamorphically enhanced 2.32:1 exhibits good sharpness, with fine textures resolved well. Black levels are deep and shadows are delineated well. Fleshtones appear too contrasted, and contrast in general is overly hot. The color scheme is overly bright, and colors are generally desaturated. Edge enhancement is noticeable throughout.

Reason #41 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I subscribed to WSR because I finished building my home theatre and no longer need to subscribe to magazines that give ideas on how to build a theatre. Widescreen Review focuses on the films I would like to see and the equipment I would like to upgrade. It is the next step to the home theatre experience.
