  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Miracles takes us back to Hong Kong in the 1930s. Just as in America, the gangsters are on a tear, intimidating all in their path. Jackie Chan is Dragon, an innocent young man alone in the big city looking for a job. When he saves the life of a powerful gangland boss, he is suddenly thrust into the world of high living and rival gang warfare. His luck continues on an amazing upswing which he attributes to a street vendor who gave him a magic flower. A sentimental story with Chan

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD is really unimpressive, though I am sure it looks better than it ever has. Color fidelity is predominantly yellow, affecting whites as well as blacks. Blacks are very weak, and undefined. Images are wanting in sharpness, lacking definition and clarity. Edge enhancement is evident, and bothersome, throughout. Overall, the picture has a smeared quality, though some scenes can look fairly nice. Artifacts are apparent throughout, but pixelization is minor. This is not one of your better anamorphically enhanced titles, though a nice effort by Columbia TriStar.
