DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD picture generally looks good, with natural skin tones and well-rendered contrast and shadow delineation. This provides impressive detail in the dark scenes.

Edge enhancement is noticeable, often times annoyingly so, and can detract from the overall picture quality. (Danny Richelieu)
