Our review copy disc is labelled backwards: the widescreen edition is found on the full screen side; the full screen edition is found on the widescreen side.
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD should be quite satisfying. Images are sharp and detailed, with nicely rendered fine definition and clarity. Colors are rich and warm, with vibrant reds and lush greens. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely rendered. Unfortunately, this lovely picture is plagued, at times, with a digital appearance: edge enhancement is distracting, fine details and jungle backgrounds shimmer, and minor pixelization is detected.

Reason #35 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
While on vacation at my uncle's house, I was introduced to WSR. My instinct told me it was just another A/V magazine. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down, and I knew this was a keeper. The number one question I receive at work is which is the best sounding movie. With the help of your movie reviews, I now have people calling my cell just to find out which new release sounds the best. Your reviews are always on target! Your product reviews have increased my knowledge beyond expectations. I know that when someone asks me about a new product on the market, all I have to do is wait for my next issue to show up. Your philosophy on sound systems has totally changed the way I go about selling and setting up surround sound systems in my customerís houses. Thanks to WSR I've been able to increase my sales, knowledge, and gain customer satisfaction. In my pursuit for sound perfection WSR is one of my valued assets.
