"Gone In Sixty Seconds" is a remake of the 1974 low budget crash-em-up written and directed by H.B. Halicki. Here, Nicolas Cage is Randall "Memphis" Raines, a retired car thief who must return to the action to save his brother (Ribisi) from a nasty mob boss. His mission: steal 50 very specific cars in one night.
Special features include a Movie Showcase, the three-minute featurette "The Big Jump," and up-front ads.
The level of detail in the H.264 AVC (MPEG-4) encoded 2.35:1 Blu-ray Disc picture is not as impressive as many other high-definition releases to date, but shadow delineation and black levels are impressive. A slight moiré shimmer can be still be seen in fine details, such as fences during slow moving pans, and source element artifacts can become distracting. The drab color palate matches the storytelling well, but it also limits the richness of the hues. (Danny Richelieu)
The uncompressed linear PCM soundtrack has very good fidelity, with much more articulate vocals than provided with the lossy Dolby® Digital encoding that is also on the disc. Deep bass is also improved slightly, with a tighter, more controlled attack. (Danny Richelieu)
