  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Cliff Robertson is in big trouble...and not just for agreeing to be in this movie. His character, U.S. Vice President Pike has been involved in some illegal arms dealings, and presidential candidate Stuart Davis (Hedison) and Air Force liaison Jack Tyree (Bosworth) have evidence to prove it. While on board the Concorde with an incriminating computer disc, Jack and Stuart are hijacked

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture can be very nicely rendered, with colors that are well balanced throughout. However, the picture can appear a bit flat, at times, and is wanting in dimension. Images are sharp and detailed overall, with nicely rendered contrast and shadow delineation. Minor edge enhancement is noticed on occasion, but there are no other obtrusive distractions. Source element artifacts are scattered throughout the picture. (Suzanne Hodges)
