  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Before you read this review of Get Carter, please take note of the number of producers involved with this film (there are 12). Now, remember their names, and check the review of Battlefield Earth in this issue. Note the number of producers (there are eight) and their names. As to my frequent claim of too many producers spoiling a movie...? I rest my case. Reprising the 1971 role made famous by Michael Caine, Sylvester Stallone stars as the hired gun, Jack Carter in Get Carter, based on the novel, Jack

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits images that are sharp and detailed, with excellent clarity and definition. Though the picture is mostly crisp and solid, some scenes exhibit a soft focus for effect. The picture has a stylized dark character, but contrast and shadow delineation are impressive throughout. Colors are clean and well defined, with rich hues, natural fleshtones, and deep blacks. The appearance of edge enhancement is minimal. On rare occasions, fine details shimmer slightly, but pixelization is not distracting. (Suzanne Hodges)
