  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Jack Conrad (Austin) is a dangerous criminal awaiting execution in a corrupt Central American prison

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.80:1 DVD has a gritty nature that fits the story well. Contrast is generally well balanced, and colors are bold and vibrant, even though the color scheme is fairly limited. Shadow delineation is good and details are captured well. The image is virtually free from compression artifacts, and edge enhancement is not much of a problem. Some scenes can look slightly washed out and black levels can look slightly milky, but the picture generally is good. (Danny Richelieu)
