  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Time And Tide is a wild, stylish ride Tsui Hark, known to American audiences as the director of action films like Knock Off and Double Team. A streetwise young man befriends a once-disillusioned mercenary and work together to foil an assassination attempt. Their partnership is short-lived, however, as they will unknowingly become propelled toward opposite sides of a deadly confrontation. Male audiences should be thrilled with the amount of gunfire in this film. (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD picture is quite stylish, with colors that range from cool hues to warm and natural. Some smearing is detected at times. Images are sharp and detailed, with good contrast and shadow detail. Contrast seems intentionally harsh at times. Some pixelization and edge enhancement are detected, but otherwise the picture should surely please. (Suzanne Hodges)
