I won't really say much about either Smith nor Lawrence simply because there's not much to say. They play the same characters they usually play in any other movie and if you're "into" them, then you'll get a kick out of this. I don't think this film had much to do with expanding their range rather than expanding their wallets (and kudos to them for that!) The bad guy, Johnny Tapia (Jordi Molla), is actually the most interesting character in the film and Molla plays him way over the top which works at times and doesn't at others. You shouldn't go in there looking for any award wining performances though. There's only one reason to put up with Michael Bay's brand of generic, repetitive schlock and that's the generic, repetitive schlock of stunts and chaos. There's plenty of action for everyone and although it does wear out during the film's last 45 minutes, it does serve its purpose of justifying whatever reason you had to give this film a shot in the first place.
To begin with, a set of seven deleted scenes is presented to us on a silver platter. There's about six minutes worth of footage in all, which means they basically consist of our two heroes blurting out some inane things that are supposed to either be funny or entertaining. You'll notice how none of them are supposed to advance a plot in any way. Be sure to put that silver platter in the dishwasher when you're done.
A couple of standard featurettes discussing stunts (9:00) and visual effects (12:00) can be found next. They're not too bad, although much like trailers, they're becoming standard on DVD's and it seems like no one is really making an effort to add anything new. That's not really a particular knock against this DVD though, rather a comment on the whole "featurettes" situation in DVD's.
Next up is a "music" video by some character by the name of Jay-Z (no doubt short for Jeffrey Zimmerman) who apparently seems to think himself an artist of some type. Last time I checked, it took more than being able to string a couple of words that rhyme together to be considered a singer, but if that's what it takes to make the "bling bling" nowadays...then count me in!
The following stop gets off at sequence breakdowns. Once there, you can check a handful of scenes through various methods, those being the finished scene, the on-set footage, the storyboards or the script. You can spend a fair amount of time here, but it's only mildly entertaining. After that, you can listen to 18 short production diaries, which are basically little vignettes documenting the filmmaking process. I'll listen to any jokes about Michael Bay explaining how to make movies. You can also find the theatrical trailer to this and many other films.
