GONE IN 60 SECONDS (1974)

GONE IN 60 SECONDS (1974) REVIEWED

“Gone in 60 Seconds” was never as better as the first outing under Halicki. The less said about the Bruckheimer reimagining…the better. Watching an earnest filmmaker craft a stunning piece of car porn is amazing. Coming off the heels of bigger fare ala “Vanishing Point”, Halicki smacked down some true indie spirit. As someone who has collected this film over its last few Home Video incarnations, I’ll update the scorecard. Mill Creek has the film in its proper aspect ratio and most of the special features are ported over.

However, the Speed Channel documentary from the last release is missing. More of the original audio cues are present, but the BCI synth track still makes an appearance here and there. I would’ve liked to have heard the Dolby 5.1 track cleaned up. But, I’ll take what I can get.
