Jeff Pollack directs Tupac Shakur and Leon in the urban basketball drama Above the Rim, which comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable to the standard full-frame image. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include theatrical trailers. Additional extras are available for those with a DVD-ROM drive. This is a fine release from New Line Home Entertainment.
