Brother Bear DVD Review
PictureA solid, colourful 16:9
anamorphic picture makes the most of
some impressive images; obviously the
image is clean and sharp, and the colour
palette is strong and accurate.
SoundThe sound is English in DD5.1 or
DTS, and there's also an English audio
descriptive track. THX approved, the
sound is impressive throughout, with
strong centrally-positioned dialogue,
imaginative use of the surround channels
and powerful subwoofer effects. Not that
the audience of toddlers is likely to notice.
ExtrasAs with the picture and sound
quality, Disney has done a good job
with the extras. There are two-anda-
half minutes of spoof outtakes, a
'commentary' by mooses Rutt and
Tuke, a Phil Collins music video, games,
a featurette on Native American tales, a
design featurette, deleted scenes, a
deleted song, English subtitles and
a THX optimiser.
VerdictPretty typical animal animation from an
increasingly unimaginative Disney, but the
DVD's a cracker.
Suggested retail price when reviewed: £19.99
