The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD is fantastic, exhibiting bold, vibrant colors, natural fleshtones and endless blacks. Images are sharp and solid and the stage performance exhibits good depth and definition. Detail into the audience is also impressive. Some full shots of the stage are a bit soft. The bold blue suits worn by James Brown and the band are just a shade shy of oversaturation-absolutely a stunning color. Before the performance starts the picture exhibits some distractions like aliasing problems, pixelization and lack of definition in the darker scenes, but the curtain opens less than four minutes into the program and I can't imagine any fan feeling disappointed with the visual performance.

Reason #41 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I subscribed to WSR because I finished building my home theatre and no longer need to subscribe to magazines that give ideas on how to build a theatre. Widescreen Review focuses on the films I would like to see and the equipment I would like to upgrade. It is the next step to the home theatre experience.
