Speeding into DVD is the Sylvester Stallone-written racing film Driven. Directed by action specialist Renny Harlin, Warner has done a fantastic job with this disc. Presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen, Driven is a reference-quality disc with no imperfections. All colors and black levels are dead-on, without any problems to the viewer's eye. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and is also impressive, with directional effects used continuously during the film. Hearing cars zip from behind to front or broken tires zooming through the air will be a great thrill for home theater owners. Also included on this disc is a Dolby Digital French 5.1 track as well as English, French, and Spanish subtitles. Driven could be considered a special edition of sorts. Supplements on this disc include an insightful commentary by director Renny Harlin, additional deleted scenes with commentary by Sylvester Stallone, two separate documentaries titled The Making of Driven and Conquering Speed Through Live Action and Visual Effects, plus an anamorphic theatrical trailer for Driven. Both documentaries provide interesting insight into the making of the film, especially on how the computer-generated special effects sequences were achieved. Racing fans should start their engines and pick up the DVD for Driven if they're in the mood for an excellent disc.
