  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Robin-B-Hood stars Jackie Chan as a compulsive gambler who turns to robbery as a way of raising cash to pay off his debts. The poor gambler

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD can look quite good, with solid black levels and bright, vibrant colors. But compression artifacts can be recognized at times throughout the presentation, and details are not captured as well as in better releases. While the picture does not look smeared, it is relatively soft. Shadow delineation is fairly good, helping create a dimensional-looking image, but the darkest portions of the image can look flat. Edge enhancement is noticeable, but not overly distracting. (Danny Richelieu)
