The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture looks "digital" and is wanting in a more solid, spacious quality. Colors are vivid with deep blacks, but color schemes vary stylistically. Images are frequently sharp and detailed, with generally good contrast and shadow delineation. Pixelization and artifacts are evident, adding to the harsh appearance. Edge enhancement can be very distracting. The picture could be pleasing due to the fairly sharp imagery, but its harsh quality is bothersome.
