Based on the novel by Joe Connelly,
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD is intentionally desaturated. Achieved by the bleach bypass process (partial or total elimination of the bleach step in printing), the picture has an overexposed appearance in the hostpital scenes and a somewhat monochromatic appearance in the darker scenes and in the ambulance. While colors are rich and dramatically contrasted, they are also nicely balanced throughout. Images are mostly sharp and detailed, though some scenes are soft and plugged-up. Minor artifacts, occasional edge enhancement and pixelization are apparent.
Reason #108 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I have been reading WSR for about two years now and especially enjoy the product review section. Although the other articles and review sections are generally well-written and informative, the product reviews give me an unbiased look at new technologies and products. Being in the home theatre design field, I look at many different sources for product ups and downs and find your magazine a very valuable resource in this area. Keep up the great work!!
