Special features on Disc One of the two-disc DVD set include eight deleted scenes; the following featurettes: Birth Of The Shadowman (two minutes), Becoming Sydney (five minutes), Shadow World: Seeing The Dead (nine minutes), and The Eye: An Explosive Finale (six minutes); the original theatrical trailer; and additional previews. Disc Two contains a digital copy of this film.
Sydney Wells (Alba) is a successful violinist who has been blind since the age of five. Her years of darkness are coming to an end, as a cornea donor is found, enabling Sydney to undergo a vision-restoring operation. With the operation deemed a success, Sydney soon begins to see again
The anamorphically enhanced 2.32:1 DVD exhibits a desaturated appearance, which combines with the cool color scheme to give it a spectral appearance. Black levels are elevated slightly, but not distractingly so. Shadow delineation is nicely rendered, helping create a nice sense of depth. Contrast is fairly well balanced, but the image overall seems too dim. Fleshtones also have a greenish hue, with unnaturally saturated highlights. Infrequent dirt speckles are noticeable throughout, and edge enhancement is subtle, but neither are overly distracting. Resolution is solid, and the image looks clean of compression artifacts.(Danny Richelieu)

Thanks to Widescreen Review, I have been able to make informed purchases, improve the performance of my equipment, and keep it looking and sounding its best. Reading Widescreen Review has changed my life for the better. Were it not for Widescreen Review introducing me to filming techniques; video transferring, production and playback; widescreen TV technologies; and audio production and playback, I probably would not have gone on to study these technologies to the degree that I have.
