"Point Break" stars Keanu Reeves as a rookie FBI agent who's talked into going undercover and joining a group of renegade surfers. His partner (Busey) thinks the guys are actually a band of criminals, but once among them, it's hard not be drawn to their charismatic leader (Swayze) and the life he leads. (Tricia Spears)
Like the previously released DVD, the anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a generally satisfying picture, with images that are sharp and nicely detailed, though some scenes appear a bit smeared. Despite a slightly dark character, the colors are well balanced, with accurate flesh tones, rich hues, and deep blacks. The source element is revealing of film grain and artifacts throughout.

The previously released DVD included two encodings, one 5.1-channel DTS
Reason #74 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I'm a fairly avid home theatre enthusiast and like to keep up on all of the most recent development and progress relating to A/V equipment and digital media. Of all of the publications related to this topic, WSR is the most complete, most thorough, and has become the champion of enthusiasts, such as myself, in fighting for the best possible presentation of audio and video in consumer electronics and broadcast media. In addition to the very informative columns, I am very appreciative of WSR's equipment reviews and its commitment to providing a relatively honest opinion of each product. It's refreshing to see a review that does not conclude with: If you like red LED displays, don't mind just slightly bright and forward sounding gear, and absolutely have to have to have your equipment in a gold-tone color, you should go to your nearest XYZ dealer and give an audition. Itís reviews like this that leave me mystified as to why people even bother reading these other publications. I hope that WSR continues its excellent work.
