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
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)
Reason #112 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
The first thing that grabbed my interest was the DVD reviews. But after I purchased that first issue and read the reviews, I got hooked on all of the other information contained in each issue. I had adopted the DVD format fairly early on, and I have had a strong preference for widescreen, dating back to my VHS days. The technical information is a godsend. I feel that I have saved so much money by avoiding inferior quality DVDs. I was very ignorant about the technology out there for home theatre and was not aware of the resources I had that were really going to waste. (5.1 in my movie collection) I read and read and read and finally updated my antiquated system. It is such a wonderful joy to turn down the lights, turn up the sound, and enjoy movies more than I ever could at a theatre. I knew it was worth it even more when my wife said, “Cool” as we watched The Others with true surround sound. Widescreen Review has actually helped improve my quality of life!
