What happens when a gadget-laden detective (Leung)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD, filled with fast-paced, at times shaky visuals, exhibits generally good image quality. Images are sharp, with good depth. Some scenes appear slightly hazy and softly focused. Colors are nicely saturated, with balanced fleshtones, and deep blacks. The picture appears slightly dim and undefined in the darker scenes. There is some edge enhancement apparent at times, but pixelization is generally not a factor. Minor source element artifacts and film grain are revealed throughout. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #63 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I am an older guy who had not bought any A/V equipment for the last 14 years. I was really out of the loop as to what was happening. Did not even own a DVD player until now. This summer, my wife and I decided to build a small home theatre in our basement. Widescreen Review has been an invaluable research partner. The room was completed in mid September and now Widescreen Review can really show its stuff. The extensive DVD reviews are the final word for us when picking movies to watch. The news and equipment reviews keep us current, as we start down the never-ending path of upgrade-itis. Thanks for a great magazine.
