Sound and Vision:
This budget re-release of Unleashed: Danny the Dog has average image quality with some edge enhancement but overall there’s little that bothers you. Also, the different parts in the movie have their own color palette which results in a very atmospheric viewing.
You get two soundtracks with this movie and we found that the DTS track is pretty good with dynamic split-surround and clear dialogues coming from the center.
This budget version is a perfect way to enjoy the movie as the extras of the Special Edition are all but interesting and now you don’t have to pay for them
