There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
During my first viewing I was put off a number of times about the visual quality, and puzzled that it seemed inconsistent with the otherwise nice production qualities. I am not the only one in reviews to note unusually dark scenes and also less clarity at times than are customary. I now realize that this dvd is simply not a good rendering of the original film If you watch the special features of this film you will see excerpts that make it quite evident that the original image quality is alright and not the same as we see in this dvd.
It is ONLY for the dvd quality that I reduced 1 star, and quite frankly I should have removed 2 stars for the quality issue, but the film is very much worth seeing. It is not the Karate Kid or other films that I grew up with, but one that is more likely to relate with and engage a young audience as well as others. The image quality is not really a deal breaker, but the film deserves better treatment and so does the customer.
school, and later turned to a woman expert, and became very adept at self-defense. The acting is rather mediocre, but
the story is excellent, and the film never really exaggerates the action, like so many in the genre do. This is more a message
film than a mass entertainment, and if you are interested in the subject matter, you will likely not be dissatisfied.
