  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Jack (Vandenberg) has no memory of anything that happened to him before he became a Pit Fighter. But when his past starts to catch up with him, Jack realizes that he has to do whatever he must to seek redemption. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture has a girtty, edgy style that is complementary to the storytelling. Colors exhibit slightly weak saturation, often appearing brownish with milky blacks. Chromatic stylizations are also utilized to evoke different moods. Contrast and shadow delineation are satisfying. The handheld camerawork can be a bit dizzying on larger home theatre displays. There is no bothersome edge enhancement, and pixelization is generally minor. The source element is revealing of film grain and minor dirt, which contributes to the picture
