The Fast and the Furious Trilogy (BLU-RAY)

The Fast and the Furious Trilogy

On Blu-Ray: 
Tuesday, March 24, 2009
Running Time: 
320 Minutes

Working titles for the movie included "Racer X", "Redline" and "Race Wars".

Conveniently timed for the release of the fourth movie, The Fast and the Furious makes it's way to blu-ray for the first time.  The issue?  This box set is called the "Fast and the Furious Trilogy" and includes a bonus ticket to see the new FAST AND FURIOUS.  How can it be acknowledged as a trilogy when it is being released in conjuntion with the fourth movie?

2 Fast and Tokyo Drift are remarkable.  Somehow, the first movie has the slight appearance of an early 90s movie rather than the 2001 movie that it is.  Saving Grace: The sound is lossless all around.

The Fast and the Furious: Making-Of, deleted scenes, commentary, sneak peek at the new movie, featurettes, Digital Copy.

2 Fast 2 Furious: Commentary, featurettes, deleted scenes, outtakes, sneak peek at the new movie, Digital Copy.

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift: Commentary, deleted scenes, featurettes, making of, sneak peek of the new movie, Digital Copy.

The bonus features are heavy, featuring all included on the standard releases as well as a few blu-ray extras.  The "sneak peeks" of Fast and Furious are all different on each release but will be useless when the new movie finally comes out.  This set is one of the better box sets I have seen and is certainly worth the buy for fans of the franchise.
