Angel Eyes is a romantic drama disguised as a cop suspenser. Sharon Pogue (Lopez) is a petite streetwise Chicago cop, who has some difficulties with family matters (an abusive father and brother) and affairs of the heart (her trysts with civilian men leave her cold). Enter a strange man, Catch (Caviezel), who becomes Sharon
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits an appropriately dark, but attractive picture; one that exhibits good contrast and shadow delineation. Images are sharp and detailed, with good clarity and depth. Colors are well balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. While there is a little bit of edge enhancement noticed on occasion, its presence does not terribly distract from the picture. There are a few source element artifacts noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
I read WSR for the articles—honest. Terry Paullin's industry insight is refreshing and lively. The lack of comparisons of which home theatre-in-a-box is best or which sub $200 DVD player is best leaves more room for in-depth product and movie reviews. Most importantly, though, I read WSR for the caricature of Gary Reber morphed on to the movie featured on the cover in the Editor's Couch page. Pierce Brosnan had better watch out!
