  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Rudy (Van Damme), a reformed artifacts smuggler, heads off to Jerusalem to rescue his dad, who was taken hostage by a group of religious fanatics. Once he gets there, however, he finds that his troubles have just begun. After going to the police for their help, he is framed for murder by the corrupt police chief himself. As he searches for an ancient scroll that contains secret information about a dangerous ancient religious sect, Rudy acquires the help of a policewoman (Milos) to recover it and rescue his father before all hell breaks loose in

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 (or 1.85:00, if you trust the jacket) DVD picture exhibits sharp and nicely detailed images, with excellent contrast and shadow delineation. Colors are rich and well balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Clarity and definition are quite satisfying. Edge enhancement, when present, can be a problem. The source element is revealing of some minor dirt. (Suzanne Hodges) The DVD includes a modified 1.33:1 version (not reviewed) on the disc
