  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Global warming. Melting glaciers. Record-breaking hurricanes and floods. Life-threatening droughts. They pepper the headlines of our newspapers and our evening news programs almost daily. But how much do we really know? How bad is it...really? Spend the next 90-plus minutes with Al Gore

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits a varied quality, as can be expected from a collection of different sources. In general, the picture is slightly smeared, although adequately well resolved. Blacks are deep, and good shadow delineation can make for a dimensional image, but noticeable edge enhancement can flatten the image. (Danny Richelieu)
