The made-for-TV sci-fi thriller Race Against Time we see what would happen if we had complete control over our bodies; meaning suicide or selling our organs was perfectly legal.The year is 2008, and a new industry is born: harvesting body parts.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture has a slightly soft quality, though fine detail can be nicely rendered at times. Colors are well balanced, with accurate fleshtones, rich hues, and deep blacks. At times, colors appear slightly subdued. Contrast and shadow delineation are quite pleasing. Though the picture can be a bit flat and wanting in dimension, overall image quality is quite pleasing. Edge enhancement is rarely noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #55 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it has had a consistent editorial perspective since its inception: a no-compromise approach to making home theatre the best that it can be. I have read the magazine cover to cover since Issue 2. Despite staff and reviewer changes over the years, thanks to Gary's leadership this perspective has never changed. As new technologies are introduced, Widescreen Review always provides in-depth analyses of not just the technology itself, but the political and industry forces that may be forcing compromises in its development. You have always sounded the clarion call to stop compression madness or any other madness that may force us to accept a home theatre experience that falls short of what it could be. Thank you!
