Generally, it looks quite okay. Colours are good and solid with little interference from noise and seem largely unaffected by bleeding. The concert begins in the day and ends after dark, and things naturally look a little different as stage lighting takes over. Being spread over two discs means that compression artefacts are virtually non-existent, and the whole thing is also rather clean and mark-free. There is a choice here between two quite decent audio tracks, a Dolby Digital 2.
The 5. There is a good dynamic range with horns cutting in loud and sharp, and the drum rolls and fills all sound full, rich and deep. Vocals, both lead and harmony, are clearly audible and there are no synchronisation issues. All instruments actually come through nice and clear in the 5.
He then reads a solemn declaration about the lack of freedom of speech in South Africa. Apparently Phil decided that he needed to devote a concert to educating his audience about rather obvious subjects. I mean, by , did anyone not know that South Africa was a repressive state? Springsteen can do this kind of thing, as can Bono, but Phil is more of a goofy showman. That means his stabs tend to seem forced and self-conscious.
Despite those missteps, most of the show works fairly well. Phil indulges in a few too many extended instrumental moments. Much of the show comes across fairly well.
No one expects grand theatrics from Collins, but he still presents himself as a fairly genial master of ceremonies, despite the public service announcements. Actually, he holds a stage surprisingly well and manages to offer a strong focal point. Indeed, the portion from the band introductions through the end offers virtually non-stop fun and frivolity.
Much needed fun and frivolity, I might add. Jim Yukich directs Hits with a minimum of fuss and muss. A pretty average production, the DVD replicates the concert with reasonable effectiveness. It eschews quick cutting or gimmicks and seems like it demonstrates a logical focus much of the time. It suffers from a lack of flair, though. The cuts and angles never become terribly inviting or involving.
The DVD documents the show with reasonable accuracy but not much spark.
