    The Legend of Bagger Vance (Rental)
    Dreamworks/20th Century Fox . R4 . COLOR . 121 mins . PG . PAL


    Rannulph Junuh was once the toast of Savannah Georgia. He was a promising golfer who had won all of the tournaments played in the South and was about to tackle the majors when America joined World War 1. Junuh returns from France a broken man, haunted by the horrors of war and unable to face the life he once knew. But life offers Junuh a second chance when he is given the opportunity to play in a celebrity golf tournament being run by his former love, Adele Invergordon. The road to victory will be tough as Junuh must face all of his demons as he struggles to get his swing back. His task is helped the appearance of a mysterious caddy named Bagger Vance.

    Robert Redford has skillfully directed a wonderful cast to tell a lovely story. The cinematography of this film is marvellous and the score is beautiful.


    Framed at 1.85:1 and 16x9 enhanced this transfer is excellent. The colours are lovely and bright but never look un-natural or overly saturated. The sharpness and detail levels revealed are first rate. The shadow detail is very good and blacks look nice and solid. Some minor aliasing and moiré effects are visible in a few scenes but are never a distraction.

    There is only one audio track on this disc. It is an English Dolby Digital 5.1 track encoded with a bit rate of 384 Kb/s. This is an excellent audio transfer featuring crystal clear dialogue, frequent split channel effects, constant surround use and a wonderful score. The subwoofer is used infrequently throughout.

    Junuh seems to have used one of his famous long drives to hit all of the extras into the distance where they cannot be found!
