  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
This slick action thriller stars Ford as United States President James Marshall who delivers an impassioned address to a room full of Russian dignitaries. Following his speech that praised the capture of the brutal fascist tyrant General Radek (Prochnow), Marshall joins his wife and daughter aboard

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced Superbit DVD picture (framed at 2.35:1) exhibits a crisp, subtly cleaner picture than the previously reviewed DVD. Colors appear similar to the previous version, if not just slightly richer. Hues are well balanced throughout, with natural fleshtones, and deep, true blacks. While the picture is slightly cleaner, and with less noise, there are still signs of edge enhancement. As well, the same source element artifacts are apparent on both versions. Like the differences between the other Superbit titles we have reviewed, this DVD utilizes a higher bit rate, but visually, the differences between the two versions are not astronomical.
