The Twilight Samurai
Reviewed by: Amber WilkinsonRead Amber Wilkinson's film review of The Twilight Samurai
The picture quality is not as good as you would expect from such a modern film, with all of the blacks being a muddy soup, making it difficult to discern detail in many of the "twilight" interior scenes. The shots outside fare better but there is still a lot of grain and muting, suggesting that the print from which this was transferred wasn't up to much. The audio, on the other hand, is fine, clear and pleasant, without overwhelming the action. No extras to speak of except the original trailer and teaser, which I cannot believe would entice anyone. WARNING: Don't watch first; they give away too much.
It's a shame that such a prestigious and enjoyable film didn't have more justice done to it in terms of print quality. But don't let that put you off investingReviewed on: 12 Mar 2005
