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 #80 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I subscribe to several magazines because each one has a different bias, and they obviously don't always write about the same things. I purchase magazines at the newsstand when a particular article or review interests me enough that it's a keeper. I consider Widescreen Review to have the most professional bias of the home theatre magazines. Whereas something like Sound & Vision, I would consider to be more of a consumer bias. One of the things I like about Widescreen Review is the articles about the industry and technical articles (e.g., room setup). I also like its detailed equipment reviews that tell it like it is. One other item of note would be the DVD reviews. I like the ratings, the short descriptions, and the technical information.
