DVD Picture:
This new anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a picture that is virtually identical to the previously released DVDs (reviewed in Issue 41).

Viewing should take place in a completely blackened room for the appropriately dark, nighttime shark hunting excursions at sea. Some scenes are overly contrasted. Overall, the transfer is quite clean, with little distracting pixelization. Minor artifacts and occasional enhancement is noticed, but the picture is quite pleasing, especially for its age.
