After Harry Callahan (Eastwood) handles a liquor store holdup in his own no-nonsense way, he is transferred from Homicide to Personnel. His supervisors quickly want him back, though, after an arms warehouse is robbed by terrorists. Much to Harry
The anamorphically enhanced 2.39:1 DVD shows some improvement in resolution over the previous release, with fine details delivered nicely. Black levels are consistent, but slightly elevated, and shadow delineation is improved, helping create a more realistic, dimensional picture. Fleshtones are also improved, looking more natural than in the DVD reviewed in Issue 56, and contrast is also balanced better. Flecks of dirt can be noticed at times, but it is hardly a distraction, and edge enhancement is minor, almost to the point of being a non-issue. Color balance is improved significantly, looking not nearly as dated as in the previous DVD. Compression is also improved, with very few artifacts noticeable. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #43 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I've subscribed to Widescreen Review for a number of years now. Unlike any other magazine in the field, WSR offers an incredible range of excellent equipment reviews, software reviews, and articles on upcoming technologies. It never ceases to amaze me on the inside information that Gary and his gang are able to get. A perfect example of this is the excellent speakers provided on the Home Theatre Cruise! How do you do it, Gary? I use WSR to keep up on which technologies are dueling it out for high-definition supremacy and to help me prepare for my future dream home theatre. Having such insider information is proving invaluable. No other magazine I know of helps to shape the industry it serves in such a positive way. Long live WSR!
