Fox originally released the popular action film Speed on DVD as a basic edition, but with the times changing, a special edition was inevitable, and it has been delivered. Another in their series of "5-Star Collections," this loaded 2-disc set continues a tradition that is setting standards. The image, which may just be this set's weakest point, is still quite good. Framed at 2.35:1 and anamorphic, it looks a touch dark for the majority of the picture and colors aren't too vibrant. Still, the overall look of the transfer is nice and clear. The sound, with both DTS and Dolby Digital tracks is very aggressive and dynamic, utilizing the surround field at just the right times, creating a nice effect. The real difference though between this release and the original are the supplements, which are extensive here. To begin with, the first disc has two scene specific commentary tracks. Though the track by director Jan De Bont is quite informative, it's the track from writer Graham Yost and producer Mark Gordon that stands out. Both have a wonderful self-deprecating humor that lends itself well to this kind of mindless, yet fun, action genre. The second disc is where all the fun begins, though, and there is a lot to go through. The main menu is made up of six sections: Action Sequences, Inside Speed, Interview Archive, Extended Scenes, Image Gallery and Promotion. As would be expected, there are a number of featurettes in the first two sections, from how the bus jump was accomplished to visual effects and the complete text screenplay. The third section has interviews with the main cast members and De Bont. Next are five extended scenes, which can be played individually or in a group. As for the image gallery, this includes not only shots from the film, but behind the scenes and personal photos from the cast. Finally, as if all that wasn't enough, is the promotional section. Included here is a music video from Billy Idol of all people, the press kit, theatrical trailer, eleven television spots and an HBO "First Look" which runs just over 24 minutes. Clearly Fox knows what they are doing when they provide this sort of DVD to eager fans.

The only Speed in this movie was my remote control. It truly was horrible. Everything was drawn out and nobody knew their heads from you know what.

I enjoyed it so much!Keanu Reeves was excellent in Speed.It kept me excited and nervous all the way. I couldn't miss one moment.And Oh My God! Keanu Reeves was so crazy hot, and was born for the part.

speed is the 'best movie ever' i saw it once and i wanted to keep wayching it i went crazy.Especially since it has keanu reeves keanu is a great actor and i want to be an actor myself i hope i get the chance one day to play a role with him in a movie!!!!!
Guest More than 1 year ago
This movie is totally awesome and kicks some serious butt!!! It's a non-stop thrill ride that keeps you on the edge of your seat!!! The chemistry between Keanu and Sandra was perfect, not too much that it becomes a gooey romance movie, and not too little that they weren't interested in each other at all. 2 words: SEE IT!!!!

I first saw the movie ''Speed'' when I was 10 years old, and it has been my favorite movie ever since. It has everything anyone would ever want in a movie~ romance, action, (a tad bit of) gore, sex appeal (Hello?? keanu reeves!), suspence, and comedy. It's terrific! The movie keeps you sitting at the edge of your seat right from the first 30 seconds. I own the movie on DVD, and when it came out on DVD, of course I had to buy it! And Im so glad that i did! Even from opening credits down the elevator shafts you can tell the difference from the movie~ it's so clear!! Plus they got rid of some of the bloopers, and the added extras are wonderful! I love the intervies with Keanu, Sandra, and the rest of the stars, plus the deleted/extended scenes. And I thought that the movie couldnt get any better!

Sandra Bullock was amazing in this movie. The chemistry between her and Keanu Reeves was perfect, and just enough so it doesn't take away from the movie, but it keeps up the story

Speed is the best action movie. It's a fast pace explosive ride. The script, performances, and effects are all excellent.

Speed was an intense movie. It had action in it and many parts when you want to go through the T.V and help them because they are in so much trouble.
