IDENTITY appears in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 on this
single-sided, dual-layered DVD; the image has been enhanced for
16X9 televisions. As one might expect from Universal, BOURNE
IDENTITY looked magnificent. Sharpness was excellent at all
times. The film remained crisp and distinct. I saw no signs of
softness or jagged edges. There was also no evidence of edge
enhancement. A few small specks here and there, but otherwise
the image looked clean and unmarked. The colors looked rich and
brilliant. Black levels were deep and rich, while shadow detail
came across clear. Overall, the BOURNE IDENTITYdisplayed
a sharp and impressive DVD presentation.
IDENTITY is presented in both a Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS track.
There were no major difference between the two tracks as the DTS
and DD5.1 soundtracks were very similar. However, the DTS
version displayed a slightly stronger bass response and was
somewhat more involving and surrounding. All five channels
received a vigorous workout through much of the film. The film
created a terrific sense of atmosphere and allowed the viewer to
become completely involved in the action. Audio was positive.
Dialogue was natural with no signs of edginess. Music score was
lively and the bass appeared tight and deep throughout the film.
Overall, the audio for BOURNE IDENTITY was truly a dynamic
