Mel Gibson's controversial box-office smash The Passion of The Christ debuts on DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.40:1 and does a fabulous job of capturing Caleb Deschanel's fabulous cinematography. The soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS Surround. As in the theatrical release, the dialogue has been recorded in Aramaic and Latin. English and Spanish subtitles are accessible. The only extra of note is an audio track designed to assist the visually impaired. A male voice narrates the action on the screen while a female voice delivers the dialogue. Considering the remarkable amount of press the film generated, it would not be unreasonable to think that a more deluxe DVD will be made one day, but for the time being, this disc does an excellent job of presenting Gibson's vision.
