  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Get ready for a blast from the past when Indiana Jones And his young protege Mutt Williams (LaBeouf) set out to discover The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull. Everyone

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.39:1 DVD exhibits a very sharp image, with fine details in close shots captured well, and even long shots looking natural and clearly defined. Shadows are delineated well, and black levels are deep. A wide assortment of colors are used, even though brown and green hues dominate, and colors are generally nicely saturated. Contrast is balanced well, and color lightness seems accurate. Fleshtones are natural with good distinction between various hues. Compression artifacts are rarely a distraction, and while edge enhancement is used, it is so minor that it is rarely noticeable. This is a very enjoyable picture.(Danny Richelieu)
