Speed... Is it really what I need?
on February 13, 2004
Ok, when I watched it in the cinemas, it was great. The action was there, the intense feeling was there (its like "24", only its almost 2 hours long), you grip on to your seat, you scream and shout and its like "Keanu is so cool" and all... and it was the complete hit for everyone. I was hook even.
But then comes the DVD Five Star Collection. Yes, the extras were there. Yes, some of the fun things about the making of the movie is there. The deleted scenes were necessary to be taken out from the movie and now you can watch it and say "thank you for taking it out, Mr. Editor" and most of all, the music video that isn't... well, anything exceptional.
Still, one of the most irritating features for this collection was the interactive menus. I had a hard time pressing for the selected path I want to go. Worst even I had to push the arrow button a few times to get there. And the opening of the menu... the music really gets me on my nerves.
All in all, yes I enjoyed the movie despite the flaws you can see while watching the movie. It can be part of your collection if you enjoy this movie... but then again, while watching one too many times, you might get tire of it. Still, a movie that makes Keanu looks cool... and that is before "The Matrix" even (which make him SUPER COOL!).
