In the tradition of Gandhi, The Ten Commandments, and Lawrence Of Arabia comes a sweeping screen epic busting with spectacle and drama
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits sharp and detailed images, with nicely rendered contrast and shadow delineation. Hues are well balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. There is some minor shimmering noticed in the finer details, and some edge enhancement is detected. Still, the picture should surely please throughout. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #114 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I appreciate the technical nature of your DVD reviews; that is, the way you rate the sound and picture quality of newly released DVDs. The reviews in most other magazines are concerned not with how good the DVD is, but with just the film itself: quality of the script, actors' performances, etc., all of which are subject to the critic's personal tastes, which may be wildly different from my own.
