The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVDs exhibit pleasing image quality, with colors that are often well balanced, with natural fleshtones, but blacks that seem just shy of true depth. There are times throughout the color palette when the picture can appear somewhat undersaturated or weak at times. Images are generally sharp, with satisfying details and textures. Sometimes images can appear a bit smeared. Edge enhancement and pixelization are mostly minor. (Suzanne Hodges)
