  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Columbia TriStar

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a slightly dim picture, so viewing in a completely blackened room is recommended. Images are somewhat soft throughout, but detail can be nicely rendered. Contrast seems a bit low, but shadow delineation is satisfying for the appropriately dark and suspenseful scenes. Pixelization can cause some minor image break up, but edge enhancement is rarely a problem. (Suzanne Hodges) A modified 1.33:1 version is also included (not reviewed).
