Image Transfer Review: New Line Cinema presents The Corruptor in an anamorphic 2.35:1 original theatrical aspect ratio. Although there is some orange hued skin coloring in occasional interior scenes, this dark movie is predominantly clean and sharp, with vivid, well saturated color; simply a tight, crisp picture. By the end of the film I felt I could draw a map of every pore, every nick on both Yun-Fat's and Wahlberg's face. I can't imagine how good this picture would be on a 16:9 screen. Since I can't, there is a fair amount of typical aliasing distortion and some pixelation, but better suffer the former today for the picture we'll have tomorrow. Still, sometimes I just wished I had bought a Sony player in the meantime (softer, averaged downconversion). Sorry Toshiba (I guess I just had to say it. There I feel better). Of course, better yet, a widescreen high definition television...or even better yet, a 120" 16:9 high definition front projection setup. A guy can hope, can't he? But I digress. (By the way, for those keeping score at home, the layer switch on this RSDL disc is at the 1:36:26 mark. This also marks the first time I've a noticed a layer switch since July 3rd when I bought my Toshiba SD3109.)

Audio Transfer Review: This single-sided picture disc contains an obligatory, but dynamic Dolby Surround 2.0 mix, but the Dolby Digital 5.1 (as the default, yes!), is perhaps the real star of this disc. This is a loud, no holds barred, fully functional, wham-bam, thank you m'am soundtrack. There are bomb fragments surrounding you, tons of bullets fly by your head, pass your face, in your brain. Sweeping effects both follow the action across the screen left to right, front to back, and diagonally, but are also used well in several musical scene transitions. Carter Burwell's haunting and sad musical score is one of those rarities that takes full effect of the back channels, and builds to a crescendo until it surrounds you like a heated blanket of pulsing sound.
