Image quality is superb. Audio is as it has been in the past – DTS-HD MA 5.1, and it works perfectly.
What is also a pleasant situation is that HDR has been subtlety applied, and there are no problems with projectors.
Colors and black levels are superb, as is shadow detail.
As noted above, I’m not certain regarding grain. It’s there, just as a pleasant sheen.
Not sure what the phrase “Ultimate Collector’s Edition” means in 2021, as the extras are either carried over or meager, but it is what it is.
One thing that I noticed is that the main screen is about as simple as things get. Basically, “play.” Could be a Covid thing.
Lest someone may have been away, Speed is a superb thriller with Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, Dennis Hopper and Jeff Daniels.
