There are some fresh faces in Los Angeles. Called the Newcomers, they hail from another planet, and while they are not feared, prejudices abound, ad many of them have remained isolated in their own communities. One such Alien Nation is Slagtown. Detective Matthew Sykes (Caan) works this crime-ridden area and recently lost his partner during a robbery shootout. His new partner is Sam Francisco (Patinkin), the first Newcomer detective on the LAPD. Together, they set out to find a killer as well as stop a greedy Newcomer, William Harcourt (Stamp) from taking control of his people
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a nicely rendered picture, with images that are sharp and detailed, with good contrast and shadow delineation. The night scenes exhibit excellent depth, especially the exterior scenes. Colors are fully saturated and well balanced, with natural fleshtones, bold hues and deep blacks. Cool hues are used stylistically. There is minimal edge enhancement, but pixelization is detected at times. While fine film grain is noticed, source element artifacts are not a factor.
