Fast Five Extended Edition Blu-ray Synopsis:
Get ready for “five times the action, excitement and fun” (Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV) as Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed. This Extended Version of Fast Five delivers even more
Fast Five Extended Edition Blu-ray Review:
I wont bother to go into a full review about Fast Five as just about everyone on the planet has seen the movie.
This new extended edition sounds like it’s a bit of a con as there is only one additional scene and a few minor alterations which are:
1) When Zizi’s armed thugs attack Toretto’s hideout, one of the thugs has his gun turned on himself by Toretto with CGI blood added in.
2) When Hobbs attacks three of Zizi’s thugs in the favela shootout, there is re-inserted CGI blood when Hobbs shoots one and knifes the other. The neck breaking of the last thug seems a little more brutal.
3) Hobbs’ men fire on Zizi’s thugs for a few seconds longer.
4) Slightly extended scene where Tej asks for a duplicate safe.
5) New scene: Discussion by Toretto’s crew regarding breaking into the safe and transporting it. They discuss the existence of the bathroom having a ventilation shaft which leads to the garage. This scene then segues to Leo and Santos.
6) Toretto/Hobbs fight scene slightly longer and more brutal.
7) Chato receives a few bloody bullet rounds in the favela ambush scene.
8) Zizi’s thugs are gunned down more graphically by Toretto’s crew in the favela ambush scene.
If you don’t already own Fast Five and are looking to pick up a copy, this blu-ray is certainly worth buying for the extras. As far as I can tell, the extended edition has been limited to only the US and can be imported via Amazon.com.
