This week on home video, we’ve got Paul Walker’s immensely popular blockbuster swan song, a worthy animated sequel, and a very special episode of an international hit TV series. Then, we’ve also got a gripping Danish drama, Keanu Reeves’ pet project kung fu flick, and a number of other small releases, followed by a couple of anniversary reissues and some more notable selections from the Criterion Collection.
