  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a very satisfying picture, with images that are sharp and nicely detailed, though some scenes appear slightly soft or hazy. Colors are rich and nicely balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Pixelization causes the breakup of finer details at times, but edge enhancement is not a problem. Occasional shimmering details are noticed, but nothing that is too distracting. (Suzanne Hodges)

The 5.1-channel audio presentation offers fine fidelity, with a nice, clean low-end presence and a generally palpable sense of spatiality. The on-location recordings have been processed in 5.1, with a somewhat nebulous, contrived-sounding presence. The tonality for the music sounds quite nicely balanced. The LFE channel is rather active and is frequently engaged throughout. The DTS 5.1 audio track could not be accessed due to an encoding error. (Perry Sun)
