When Egyptian-born chemical engineer, Anwar El-Ibrahimi (Metwally) mysteriously disappears on a trans-Atlantic flight from South Africa to Washington D.C., his American wife Isabella (Witherspoon) desperately tries to locate her husband. Anwar is swept away on one of the C.I.A.
The anamorphically enhanced 2.34:1 DVD shows nicely rendered details, with fine textures resolved well. The color palette can be devoid of excessively vibrant colors, but color balance is nicely rendered and fleshtones look natural. Contrast is slightly overblown, but black levels are deep and the image generally appears pleasingly dimensional. Pixel breakup can be noticed from time to time, and edge enhancement can be recognized over the higher contrast transitions, but generally this is an enjoyable presentation. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #83 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because itís simply one of the most intelligent sources of A/V information, both in terms of format and content. Product reviews are honest and thorough. I humbly admit that for the last two years I have been borrowing my brother-in-laws' copies of WSR when he was finished reading them. I am now happy to report that as of last week, I am an official subscriber of WSR and will be for many years to come. I have not been in the Custom A/V industry very long (two years), but I have spent the last 12 years in the computer and networking world, and I know thoughtful, well-sourced copy when I read it. I have come to trust WSR's reviews as a benchmark from which I form many opinions. The hard work of each reviewer makes each of us who reads it a much more credible source of information for our clients. A mentor of mine once told me that no one person has all the answers. The trick is knowing who you should listen to, and WSR has proved itself worthy month after month.
