The film also represents one of the better efforts in the three guys' respective catalogs, and I can't say I can think of a better car-based action film that's been made since, and while neither is a huge compliment, I guess that counts for something. Hot Off the Street" (4:53) turns out to be a reel of additional deleted scenes (although one is indistinguishable from a scene included on Disc 1). During the film's big truck sequence near the end, the final moment features a roof-grabbing bit of business a current movie wouldn't have even tried, and it makes the scene just that much better. 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. It does what it sets out to do without a whole lot of fanfare, and it's still fairly enjoyable, despite my having seen it several times.

Occasionally, detail and clarity are pretty high, but the film is awash in a compressed haze most of the time. I didn't see The Fast and the Furious when it was released, but if I had, I doubt I'd have guessed that it would go on to spawn three sequels, because it's pretty inconsequential. 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.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. When it comes to the artistic merits of The Fast and the Furious, he's pretty pretentious (he even compares it to West Side Story at one point), but the rest of the time, he has plenty of information to share on the plot, characters and directing style, and there aren't too many dead spots.

It's pretty superficial, but it's breezy and it isn't just the trailer with interview segments dropped in. Unfortunately, Brian finds himself intrigued by Dominic's skills and sense of family, and even more interested in Dominic's sister Mia (Jordana Brewster). Storyboard-to-Screen Comparisons (7:45) may be worth a look, although I didn't find them too interesting. Next up we have a bunch of material produced for the "Tricked Out" edition, which is promotional in nature for 2 Fast 2 Furious, including the Turbo Charged Prelude to 2 Fast 2 Furious (6:14), a lame, dialogue-free montage of Paul Walker racing to Florida, "Sneak Peek at 2 Fast 2 Furious" (5:13), an over-cut, overly-loud promo piece, and "Tricking Out a Hot Import Car" (19:13), a TV special awkwardly hosted by a Playboy bunny, filled with a lot of tricks that a warning screen informs you not to use at home.

The imaginatively-named "Featurette on Editing for the Motion Picture Association of America" (4:36) is a much more interesting and candid look at Cohen and editor Peter Honess trimming to get a PG-13. 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. Paul Walker has had his moments (namely Wayne Kramer's hyper-kinetic Running Scared), but the movie marks his first major movie role, and if anything's affected the world's opinion of him, it's his performance right here. The DVD refers to them as "extended", but that just means they're additions to scenes that made it into the movie. Otherwise, Cohen keeps his head down, his eye on the finish line and the pace up, which is more than I can say for a lot of directors these days.
