After years of tireless work, a team of scientists and technicians in a University of Chicago Research lab have trapped a simple, yet almost infinitely powerful way to produce energy from water. Suddenly, student machinist Eddie Kasalivich (Reeves) and scientist Lily Sinclair (Weisz) are caught in a Chain Reaction of murder and industrial espionage. The two colleagues are forced to go on the lam after being framed for the murder of their mentor (Rudall), and the sabotage of their laboratory.
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a pleasing picture throughout. The DVD picture should surely please, exhibiting generally sharp image, with nicely rendered detail, and good contrast and shadow delineation.

Reason #91 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I need a magazine at dose and not a sugar coat approach to reviews. I need a magazine that is not bias or a sell-out. And Widescreen Review is my winner. I am a 23-year old audiophile that likes to stay in the know and up to date on whatís new and whatís hot. I can't do that with a magazine that says every single review is a good one, like other mags out there that will be left name-less. The Sound And Vision of a product is important, but donít sell-out to make a buck, and those people out there are the ones who think that Gateway makes a good plasma. Keep up the good work. I love the mag.
