Quality Ratings (Sound / Video)
on March 10, 2000
Such a disappointment. I have both the VHS and DVD versions of this film and I am saddened about the quality.
The picture quality (just as WideScreen Review rated it) is poor. Not to make excuses but it may have something to do with Brandon Lee being grafted into the movie after his death.
The movie is (IMHO) supposed to be dark and murky, however, on the DVD, blacks are grey and murky is smokey. Faces are definately not crisp as one would expect by paying about $20.00.
Sound is a little better, as good as it can get with little need for 5.1 speakers. As most of the film is dialog, there is hardly a need to even turn on your subwoofer.
