About this deal

It's pretty superficial, but it's breezy and it isn't just the trailer with interview segments dropped in. Occasionally, detail and clarity are pretty high, but the film is awash in a compressed haze most of the time. Lastly, we have the same Paul Walker Public Service Announcement (0:39) that plays before the film on disc 1 (no explanation for why it's included twice), and trailers for the Riddick and Wanted games, and the Back to the Future trilogy re-releases. The last two extras on Disc 1 are the movie's theatrical trailer and "Racer X": The Article that Inspired the Movie, which is an interesting read but is spread over 20+ pages.

Any time the camera is far enough away to include three or four bodies, fine detail turns to mush, and I glimpsed a jagged edge here and there. Still, regardless of what nerve it struck with audiences back then to make it an international blockbuster, the movie essentially holds up: whatever you thought of the movie, it seems no better or worse now than it did eight years ago. With his superiors on his back (including Ted Levine) and Dominic's best friend (Matt Schulze) getting suspicious, Brian's forced to choose between the law and his loyalty to Dom before his increasingly personal ties to the case blow everything.Since it's only ten minutes, it doesn't go too in-depth, but hearing about drag races in the 30's is a trip. Similarly, if there's anything The Fast and the Furious might not get enough credit for, it's having a wide-spanning, multi-cultural cast that it even appears to respect. is also included, as well as English subtitles for the hard of hearing, but Spanish-speaking fans are out of luck. But the Rio gangsters are not the only ones on Toretto's tail; wily federal agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has also been assigned to track down the pair, and will stop at nothing to corner his prey. Bafflingly, "More Than Furious" (2:23) is also a deleted scene, yet it gets a menu selection all to itself.

On one hand, The Fast and the Furious isn't a very good movie, but on the other hand, it never tries to be something it isn't. The movie doesn't really do anything with all that diversity, but rest assured that the mixed-race flavor of the street-racing scene hasn't had Hollywood White-Out applied. Boswell inevitably gets drawn into the racing and the complexities of the underworld which surround it. Bringing the films to life like you’ve never seen them before, jump into our 4K Blu-ray releases, boasting sharper visuals and incredible clarity.Conversely, I've always liked Vin Diesel, so my opinion may be biased, but he's actually pretty great, especially during the movie's memorable "quarter mile at a time" speech Toretto has about his father. Entertainment Magpie Limited t/a Music Magpie is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority FRN 775278. His performance provides the movie with an all-important bit of balance: we see what Brian sees in Dom, and therefore the story works. Dominic's crew is filled out by Schulze, Michelle Rodriguez, Chad Lindberg and Johnny Strong, and while I wouldn't argue the fact that their character arcs are riddled with clichés and more poor dialogue (especially Rodriguez's excruciating tough-girl talk and Schulze's whiny-child routine), they all have believable roles to play as Dominic's friends. track, which really blasts you from all sides with the thunderous revving of car engines, gunshots, crashes and more.
