  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
What happens when a gadget-laden detective (Leung)

DVD Picture:
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)
