World Video's DVDs are known for being pretty awful and this one is no exception. The picture quality is very poor -- full of scratches, and the sound comes off more like mono than Dolby Digital, even though there is a Dolby Digital trailer in the intro. Of course, as with all movies with burned-in subs, sometimes they are are hard to read. Still, the DVD isn't totally unwatchable and is worth a look if you want to check out the movie. Just don't pay more than $5-10 for it or you'll feel ripped off.

Rating: **
