Overview

This three pack from 20th Century Fox contains the two disc set of Speed as well as the disc for the sequel. Both of the films are presented in widescreen anamorphic transfers that preserve the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. A variety of English soundtracks are available, as are English and Spanish subtitles. The Speed disc contains a wealth of extras including commentary from the director, screen writer, and producer; extended scenes; five different featurettes; multi-angle views of some stunts; the screenplay; and a music video from Billy Idol. The Speed 2 disc is limited to a pedestrian making-of featurette, and the original theatrical trailer. For the Speed disc alone, this is a superb set.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
If you frequently feel the need for Speed, look no further than this deluxe DVD box set, which offers both the 1994 original and its 1997 sequel, along with a separate disc containing a truly mind-blowing array of supplemental features -- some 3 1/2 hours of them. Speed, which turned Keanu Reeves into the screen’s most unlikely action hero, made an international star of Sandra Bullock, and put Holland-born director Jan De Bont on Hollywood’s A-list, is still every bit the heart-pounding thriller you remember from the early '90s; neither the passage of time nor the parade of imitators detracts one whit from the exhilaration offered by this nonstop thrill ride on an explosives-laden runaway bus. Speed 2, which reunited Bullock and De Bont, takes place aboard a luxury liner commandeered by maniacal genius Willem Dafoe. A little slower getting underway than its predecessor, the sequel eventually piles up thrills, one atop the other, in dizzying succession. This three-disc box presents Fox’s "Five Star Collection" edition of Speed, which includes that separate disc of extras. Commentaries by De Bont, screenwriter Graham Yost, and producer Mark Gordon are chock-full of tantalizing details and shrewdly observed insights. Other extras virtually deconstruct the movie, shot by shot. A succession of featurettes show how locations were chosen, scenes blocked out, and stunts staged. An HBO "making of" special accompanies the assortment of interviews, storyboard comparisons, trailers, production notes, and still galleries that fill out this exceptional selection of supplemental material.
