Experimental genetics turn a young couple's grief into outright horror in Lions Gate Home Entertainment's release of director Nick Hamm's Godsend. Presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen, the image is near flawless, with bright colors, solid blacks, and virtually no evidence of edge enhancement or digital artifacting. Audio is offered in closed-captioned English Dolby Digital 5.1 and is free of distortion and hiss. For adventurous viewers who may be curious to delve a bit deeper, Lions Gate has seen fit to include a lively commentary track with director Hamm, who is aided briefly by director of photography Kramer Morgenthau in discussing some of the more technical aspects of the shoot. Hamm is obviously very interested in the psychological and moral questions raised in the film, and though he spends much of the time pointing out the obvious to viewers (plot devices such as the child's toy dinosaur are explicitly singled out), it's DP Morganthau whose commentary -- however brief -- will truly be of interest to aspiring photographers. Four alternate endings with optional writer and director's commentary offer a glimpse into the indecision by the filmmakers on how to wrap up the feature, and a few pages of storyboards round out the presentation nicely.
