        New York cab driver Korben Dallas didn't mean to be a hero.

Bruce Willis stars in acclaimed director Luc Besson's (La Femme Nikita) outrageous sci-fi adventure, and extravagantly-styled tale of good against evil set in an unbelievable twenty-third century world.

    Reviewer: Sean Kelly

    This disc has got to be the closest I've seen to perfection in DVD video quality. There's no horrid artifacting, a low compression level is used, and it's difficult to spot any film blemishes if at all. I am told that the audio track on this disc kicks but in 5.1 but have not had the pleasure of experiencing that for myself yet. This disc is one of columbia tristars' first attempts at making a visually appealing menu system. It's nothing exciting. In fact the jump to scene index is quite cumbersome. (Also the jump to scene index is the first example of a potential bug I may need to point out soon here in my Toshiba SD3107 player. On the last page of the jump to scene index, a portion of the video signal from the top of the screen is echoed on the bottom of the screen. Usually this 'echo' appears as a blink-of-an-eye glitch in the picture and moves on. This is the first time I have seen the 'echo' remain on the screen for close examination. It's really quite diappointing.) At any rate, I liked this movie so much and am as equally impressed with the A/V quality on DVD, that it will be a sure addition to my expanding personal DVD collection!
