The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD opens with a stunning scene in a Vietnamese jungle battlefield. Depth and clarity are nicely rendered throughout the picture. Images are sharp and finely detailed. Color fidelity is nicely balanced, with accurate fleshtones, rich hues and deep blacks. There are occasional scenes in which the picture is wanting in dimension, but overall image quality is very good. There are a few instances in which aliasing problems are apparent, but pixelization is minimal. Overall, the picture will surely please.
I read Widescreen Review because itís simply one of the most intelligent sources of A/V information, both in terms of format and content. Product reviews are honest and thorough. I humbly admit that for the last two years I have been borrowing my brother-in-laws' copies of WSR when he was finished reading them. I am now happy to report that as of last week, I am an official subscriber of WSR and will be for many years to come. I have not been in the Custom A/V industry very long (two years), but I have spent the last 12 years in the computer and networking world, and I know thoughtful, well-sourced copy when I read it. I have come to trust WSR's reviews as a benchmark from which I form many opinions. The hard work of each reviewer makes each of us who reads it a much more credible source of information for our clients. A mentor of mine once told me that no one person has all the answers. The trick is knowing who you should listen to, and WSR has proved itself worthy month after month.
