Together since they were hitmen-in-training, The Crew (Dreyfuss, Reynolds, Hedaya and Cassel), have worked as a team...gleefully intimidating business owners, fitting a deadbeat gambler for cement overshoes, or knocking off a few rival mobsters. But enough of the good-old-days. Now, these golden-oldie gangsters are kicking back at their Miami Beach hotel...the Raj Mahal. That is, until they are faced with eviction and decide to orchestrate one last hit in order to save their ocean views. (Laurie Sevano)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a pleasing picture, with colors that are rich and vibrant, with natural fleshtones, and deep blacks. Images are sharp and detailed, with nicely rendered depth and clarity. Though the picture can have a slightly dark character, contrast and shadow delineation are satisfactory throughout. There is no distracting edge enhancement or pixelization, for a picture that is clean and solid throughout. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #43 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I've subscribed to Widescreen Review for a number of years now. Unlike any other magazine in the field, WSR offers an incredible range of excellent equipment reviews, software reviews, and articles on upcoming technologies. It never ceases to amaze me on the inside information that Gary and his gang are able to get. A perfect example of this is the excellent speakers provided on the Home Theatre Cruise! How do you do it, Gary? I use WSR to keep up on which technologies are dueling it out for high-definition supremacy and to help me prepare for my future dream home theatre. Having such insider information is proving invaluable. No other magazine I know of helps to shape the industry it serves in such a positive way. Long live WSR!
