Speedy Enough Action

Comparisons between Need for Speed and the Fast and Furious series is inevitable. Need for Speed gives you all the impossibly fast cars you could want, piles on some impressive (if improbable) stunts and doesn't skimp on the race scenes. However, the main problem is that the characters aren't nearly as impressive here - even with people like Aaron Paul and Dominic Cooper involved - and the plot is pretty thin but if it's adrenaline-infused action you're after, the movie will get the blood flowing.

I admit that movies based on video games have been mostly disappointing - and some are downright terrible. Need for Speed falls into the "OK" territory - but I have yet to truly be impressed by any of them. I have never played the Need for Speed series myself - obviously fast cars ...

Enjoyable movie smokey meets the a team

I quite enjoyed this movie. ok it started of a little corny and a bi of dodgy camera work and at first i thought oh this is going to be bad but it got better and better. and was very enjoyable
ithe car crashes looked great and kept me interested throughout.
Aaron paul is very likeable as the lead character along with imogen poots who brings a funand real element to the film,
if you have seen smokey and the bandit a few scenes reminded me of that as his quest to get to the meeting point to start the race with the cops chasing him/ if you have played the games of need for speed its very much with that in mind.
while not perfect i realy enjoyed it. its like the a team and smokey and the bandit rolled into one.
people seem to knock it because of the fast and furious franchise but i p...

Fast and furious rip-off.

Fast and furious rip-off. After being framed for something that he didn't do, a street racer leaves prison with revenge on his mind. Entering into a cross-country race he plans to get back at the wealthy partner who sent him to prison. But his one-time partner hears about the plot and puts out a bounty on his head just before the race begins. This movie has all the action and cars are flying all over the place and when all of that happened I just looked at my watch I was so bored during all of that. The movie has good stunts and at parts good action but the rest of the film lacks on story and characters. Aaron Paul the actor from Breaking Bad is better then this I mean in the hit TV show Breaking Bad he was awesome and funny but in this movie it's like watching a maanequin on screen.
