  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
The made-for-TV sci-fi thriller Race Against Time we see what would happen if we had complete control over our bodies; meaning suicide or selling our organs was perfectly legal.The year is 2008, and a new industry is born: harvesting body parts. The leader in the field is Lifecorps who offers a unique program where they will pay you today for the body parts they need tomorrow. James Gabriel (Roberts) signs up for the deal because he is desperate for money to save his desperately ill young son. The problem is...the diagnosis of his son

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture has a slightly soft quality, though fine detail can be nicely rendered at times. Colors are well balanced, with accurate fleshtones, rich hues, and deep blacks. At times, colors appear slightly subdued. Contrast and shadow delineation are quite pleasing. Though the picture can be a bit flat and wanting in dimension, overall image quality is quite pleasing. Edge enhancement is rarely noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
