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 #109 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I think that the most important aspect of a technical publication is to be strict with the choice of content and contributing Editors. I feel well-informed by WSR, and the reading of my monthly issue helps me to appreciate the home theatre experience, especially with DVD reviews and the new equipment section. Widescreen Review is for everyone interested in a good home theatre movie experience!
