Overview

C. Thomas Howell learns the hard way that being an African-American is no easy task in the 1986 politically incorrect comedy Soul Man. Anchor Bay has done a great job at cleaning up this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen print. The colors and black levels are all bright and bold with hardly any imperfections showing up in the image. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround and is very appropriate for the film it supports. Featuring crisp dialogue, music, and effects, this mix is channeled through the front and center speaker evenly and thoroughly. No subtitles are included on this disc. Fans will flip over the newly recorded commentary track by director Steve Miner and actor C. Thomas Howell. This track is very entertaining with both participants having a great time discussing how the film came to be and what it was like working on the set. Also included on this disc is a theatrical trailer and a teaser trailer for the film. All in all, this is a fine edition of this humorous '80s staple.
