Before you read this review of Get Carter, please take note of the number of producers involved with this film (there are 12).

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)
I read Widescreen Review because watching action and other great movies with awesome surround sound is my husband's greatest joy. We love our widescreen TV and thoroughly enjoy spending many nights in front of it. I want to be up on all the latest and greatest, so when it comes time for his birthday, Christmas, etc., I can get him something he will feel very happy and passionate about. This Monster Power Source would be SOOO awesome and would make my husband SOOO happy!
