Yikes! Why is this cropped!! The film is shot in 1.37:1. This 16:9 version mutilates the image — certainly not worthy of the “upgrade” label!
IMDb information is wrong about the aspect ratio on this one, this film was most likely shot in 15:9, not 1.37:1 so this widescreen copy resembles more the original aspect ratio than the old 4:3 DVD copy. You can check a scene here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnrvH8k12qw and compare it with the HD copy presented here (go to 17:25) the YT version has more picture on the top but you can see it’s heavily cropped on the right side as well as a bit on the left side.
