  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits bold, vibrant colors and well-balanced fleshtones, with deep blacks and good, although not great, shadow delineation. Details are captured well, but edge enhancement and pixilation can become distracting. The high-definition versions look very good, with intense hues and sharp details. (Danny Richelieu)
