The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD picture is slightly dated, but exhibits a bright, balanced image. Colors are accurately rendered, with natural fleshtones and deep blacks. Images are sharp and nicely detailed. Viewing should take place in a completely blackened room for the appropriately dark, nighttime shark hunting excursions at sea. Some scenes are overly contrasted. Overall, the transfer is quite clean, with little distracting pixelization. Minor artifacts and occasional enhancement is noticed, but the picture is quite pleasing, especially for its age. This is the best this movie has ever looked on video.
I read this bad-ass magazine for its tight reference systems and for helping me set up my Monster HTPS 7000 Home Theatre Power Source. It also helps me set up my Hitachi Ultra Vision LCD TV. I also read it for the DVD reviews, along with the DVD drop dates. I also read it so I can daydream about actually owning something in this magazine, including that Monster HTPS 7000. I have a Bose system, but I'm ready to step it up.
