Based on the novel by Alistair MacLean, Force 10 From Navarone reunites us with his concept (not necessarily his stories) of a group of personally very different yet highly specialized soldiers who are brought together to perform ad succeed in a most dangerous and crucial mission to strike a crippling blow to Hitler
The DVD is not anamorphically enhanced, and appears to be a recycled transfer from LaserDisc with image quality that is not very appealing. While colors are balanced with generally natural fleshtones and deep blacks, the dated picture is marred with distracting aliasing problems. Contrast and shadow delineation are mediocre. The picture seems to jump slightly on the screen throughout. Film grain is noticed throughout the picture, and is sometimes very blatant. Overall, the 2.22:1 picture is nothing impressive in terms of DVD quality.
The soundtrack is Dolby
Reason #54 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love WSR because I always seem to find out information on new technology or new products in your magazine first. Sometimes I find out as much as two issues in front of other publications. I also like the fact that you are not scared of technical articles, such as the video calibration article and the Digital Video Essential article, which goes into much depth and does not just skim the surface like many other publications seem to do. I like the articles, and I always skim forward to the end of the mag to read the new DVDs scheduled for release. I enjoy the mag very much! Keep it coming!
