The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a highly stylized picture with exaggerated, filtered colors that often lack fine definition and sometimes appear slightly smeared. Though exaggerated, hues are solid, without noticeable chroma noise. While imagery is sharp, clarity and fine detail are wanting. The picture is slightly dark, but shadow delineation is fairly well rendered, considering. Edge enhancement is noticed throughout, as well as occasional pixelization. This stylized picture has a "harsh" overall appearance.
