  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Ned (Pace) has a gift

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits good shadow delineation, with details in the darkest scenes easily visible. Black levels are somewhat elevated, but they are consistently so, and the raised levels are not much of a distraction. Compression artifacts can be distracting at times, but generally the image is clean. Colors are very bright with deep saturation, but contrast is balanced well. Fleshtones are too red with unnaturally hot highlights, and excessive noise can be recognized in the darker scenes. Edge enhancement is minor, though. (Danny Richelieu)
