America's favorite St. Bernard, “Beethoven” stars in Beethoven's Treasure Tail. After a doggone disaster of a movie shoot, the big-hearted pooch and his trainer, Eddie (Silverman), are heading home when they get stranded in a small coastal village. When Beethoven befriends a local boy (Manley), he helps him find a pirate map to lost treasure, and together they em-bark on an adventure that brings the whole town together.

The 1.78:1 1080p AVC picture is a direct-to-video HD presentation that exhibits a bright, colorful picture. The color palette is vividly rich and warm with natural but saturated hues throughout. Fleshtones are naturally hued and healthy in appearance. Contrast is nicely balanced with deep blacks and revealing shadow delineation. Resolution is revealing of fine detail throughout. Beethoven is beautifully presented with lovable looks. This is a lively visual experience that will delight the family.
The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is nicely produced with a clear, intelligible dialogue track that sounds spatially integrated. The orchestral music score is prominent throughout with nicely recorded soundstage presence that extends aggressively to the surrounds. Fidelity is excellent. Atmospherics and sound effects are effective, especially during the rambunctious mayhem as Beethoven tears through each scene with his attention fixed on characters and finding treasure. This is a fun, light, and exuberant soundtrack that perfectly complements the treasure tail.
