Academy Award winners Nicolas Cage (The Rock) and sexy Angelina Jolie (The Bone Collector) ride an unstoppable wave of speed and adrenaline in this hot, edgy action hit from high-octane producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Armageddon).

Legendary car booster Randall "Memphis" Raines (Cage) thought he`d left the fast lane behind - until he`s forced out of retirement in a do-or-die effort to save his kid brother (Giovanni Ribisi, Saving Private Ryan) from the wrath of an evil mobster! But with speed to burn and attitude to spare, Memphis hastily re-assembles his old crew - a rogues` gallery including Academy Award winner Robert Duvall (A Civil Action) - and floors it in a full-throttle race to pull off the ultimate car heist: 50 exotic beauties in 24 hours - and the cops are already on to them!

Directed by Dominic Sena and written by Scott Rosenberg, Gone In Sixty Seconds is an action-packed thrill ride that comes out fast and never slows down.

A good film with a decent package. The only thing missing s a commentary.

A great car movie, full of lots of great car-action sequences, and some nice performances from a great cast. While I thought the cast as a whole were very impressive as an ensemble, I particularly liked Delroy Lindo's performance as the cop chasing Nicolas Cage's character Memphis Raines. And then of course there's Angelina Jolie.. Oh, Angelina. … Ahem, anyway - overall the disc is as impressive as the film itself. Video & audio are both very good, and we get a nice selection of extras.

Most of the extras are 2 to 5 minute featurettes of one sort of another. All of which are interesting, although it would have been nice to either have a "play all" option or made one beefier "making of" documentary.

Anyway, extras wise there is:
- an interesting 7 minute "conversation" with producer Jerry Bruckheimer talking about his other films, the film industry in general and then a bit about this film.
- "Wild Rides" (5 mins) and "0 to 60" (3 mins) are 2 featurettes with interviews and clips of the film dealing with the stunt aspect of the film.
- "The Big Chase" is split into 3 featurettes dealing with 3 particular action sequences.
- "Action Overload" is a 1 min "featurette" that is a complete waste of time, it's just a whole bunch of clips from the film and that's it.
- "Stars on the Move" has a 1 to 2 minute clip about each character in the film, usually with interviews from the cast and crew.
- There is also the usual trailer and also a Cult music video.

The inlay booklet is also quite informative, giving us production notes, bios of the principal cast and a list of the 50 cars. A nice touch in the bios is detailing each of the cast's first cars.

Overall, a great film presented on a better than average disc. Although, as with other reviewers, I would have liked a commentary as well.
