  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
"The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course" is a cheeky journey with Steve

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a generally satisfying picture, but one that stylistically varies to differentiate the "Crocodile Hunter" show-within-the-movie from "Collision Course." That said, film grain inherent in the source element is also variable (appearing more amplified in the 1.85:1-framed windowboxed/pillarboxed show segments). Colors are consistently pleasing throughout, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Edge enhancement is definitely a problem with this title, and pixelization is often noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
