"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 #124 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review for its informative articles and DVD and equipment reviews. Most of my DVD purchases come about after reading your reviews. I was also in the market for an intern projector (cheap) until the DLP projector matured and I could afford the more expensive Runco DLP projector. I went through all of my back issues; I have been a subscriber from your very first premier issue, and came across your article on the Sony VPL-HS10 Video Projector. I was so impressed with this article that I called around town to see who carries them and who had one hooked up, so I could review it. I was so impressed with the image quality for a projector in this price range that I ended up purchasing one, even though I was not in the market for an LCD projector. In fact, I have stopped subscribing to other home theatre magazines because I find your magazine to be more informative and straight-to-the-point. Thanks for your informative articles, and keep up the good work.
