All Day With Adrian Peterson (2009/NFL/Warner DVD)


Picture: C+†††† Sound: C+†††† Extras: C†††† Main Program: C+



For the few releases we have covered on football, we have only recently covered any releases from the NFL itself.Odd as that is, the organization is well-known for keeping a superior film and video archive with a constant preservation and restoration drive that rivals major movie studios.However, this also amounts to multiple formats including HD and All Day With Adrian Peterson (2009) is a portrait of the highly successful running back from the Minnesota Vikings.


Though it has a leaning of promoting the NFL and sport, it does not hide this too much or overplay it.Knowing they need stars to keep the hard-hitting sport going, the hour-long program shows us his success, his drafting to the team and then backtracks to his humble beginnings and makes sure it complements him about his character.We are told he is noble and has humility.So far, we are convinced.


Of course, those obsessed with teams other than the Vikings will care less, but the NFL knows there are plenty of fans to go for the big stars in ways that cross franchises and cities.This is not bad and gets the job (ideologically and otherwise) they intend done.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image can be surprisingly soft and flat in parts, but looks good overall and includes some older NTSC analog video.The Dolby Digital 2.0 sound is simple stereo at best.Fortunately for Peterson, his success is now well into TVís stereo era.Extras include to yearly overviews of the Vikings over the last two seasons.
