Untamed & Uncut (Animal Planet/Genius DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Episodes: C+



Genius continues to issue interesting material from the Animal Planet archives and Untamed & Uncut has four hour-ish programs on how deadly cobras, great white sharks, cheetahs and elephants can be.  They are older productions, but look good and hold up well for their age.  The animals are fascinating to see in action and learn about.  This another competent, basic DVD release in what looks to be a continuing series, unofficial, of such shows.


The 1.33 X 1 image originated on analog NTSC video with outdoor shots looking good, but also a bit hazy and soft due to the limits of the video of the time.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 sound is simple stereo at best, but includes music and some sound effects added in post production.  There are no extras.
