Gattaca is a story set in the not-so-distant future where genetic tampering is all that stands between you and your future. Originally released a few years ago on DVD, Gattaca has been released a second time by Columbia in a new "Superbit" edition (which means a clearer picture and fuller sound) on DVD. This 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer looks exceptionally sharp and detailed. Everything in the image, including the colors, fleshtones, and black levels, are spot-on and very well-rendered; in short, this is a great-looking transfer by Columbia. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and DTS Surround, both featured in English. The DTS track and Dolby 5.1 track both sound full and expansive with no distortion or hiss present. The surround feature in both the rear and front speakers is heavy and very full with great clarity. Much like the video portion of this disc, the soundtrack is also top-notch. Also included on this disc are English, Chinese, French, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, and Thai subtitles. Columbia's theory is that since they are giving you great sound and video quality components, you don't need any extra features. As such, nary a trailer or commentary track can be found on this Gattaca: Superbit DVD. For those with a great home theater and TV, this disc is a very worthwhile buy. Otherwise, John Q. Buyer should stick with the original DVD release.
