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)
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)
Reason #67 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review is by far the most in-depth and comprehensive publication in its genre. Readers of all levels of expertise can increase their knowledge and enhance their enjoyment of the Home Theatre experience. Widescreen Review is one of the few, if not the only publication, that actually affects manufacturer’s decisions in regards to their product lines. I believe one of the reasons DTS decoding is so common in consumer equipment is due to the efforts of Gary Reber and his associates. Additionally, the magazine has heralded the importance of a properly calibrated video monitor. Consumers who are so inclined now have the information needed in order for their equipment, from entry level to state-of-the-art, to be the best that it can be. Add to this the software reviews, articles on emerging technologies, and meticulous equipment reviews, and you have a magazine that sets the standard for others to emulate. This is why I read Widescreen Review.
