DVD Review: Shooter
Movie •••½ Picture •••• Sound •••½ Extras ••••
The 2.35:1 widescreen image shows that careful attention has been paid to color and contrast in the DVD transfer. A napalm attack, one of the many explosions, creates flames of an incredible hue. Contrast is quite good, definition is sharp, blacks are solid, and there's plenty of detail in the shadows. The sound effects for all the pyrotechnics, as well as a lot of heavy gunfire, are realistically placed around a 360º field. Dialogue is sometimes too low, making it hard to catch all of Wahlberg's mumbled lines, but then talk isn't the focus of this action movie.
