The action is briefly exciting and in your face, but the characters are so thin and unlikable and the dialogue so goofy, that this comes off as too campy to be enjoyable. Every good actor in this film is wasted and, by the end, the frequent car chases and explosions even get old.

Watching the group steal all of those cars in so little time was actually kinda fun. The rest of the movie could've used a tune-up, though.

Nicolas Cage stars in another plotless foray into Hollywood no-brainer territory that is paint by numbers film-making at it's least imaginative. Cage handles the tough guy posturing while Giovanni Ribisi does his goodhearted dimwit schtick, Robert Duvall is the ageing mentor who comes out of retirement one last time, and Vinnie Jones shockingly plays a tightlipped tough guy. Add the usual mix of dogged cops who are always one step behind and wise cracking homies and you have a script that I could've written in my sleep. In fact, the ingredients of stereotypical cops & robbers, flash cars, MTV soundtrack, high contrast colour filters and storytelling by montage reminded me very much of a feature length episode of CSI Miami. The only surprises are Christopher Eccleston's BIZARRE …

Gone In 60 Seconds, a movie about car thieves that features about a half-dozen car chases but the way they are employed in this film is less than adequate. They are routine and by-the-book, and, as a result, boring. Even the sight of Nicolas Cage driving backwards at a high speed on a crowded road isn't especially interesting or exciting.
Like all Jerry Bruckheimer films, Gone In 60 Seconds has a slick look but no soul. The characters are paper thin, and the numerous action sequences are aimed directly at teenage boys. The story is borrowed from that of the 1974 feature film of the same name. Since I, like almost everyone else who will watch this movie, haven't seen the original, so I can't give and side by side comparison. However, if the 1974 version follows essentially the same …

With a cast like this it is damn near impossible to go wrong! Nicholas Cage puts out an amazing performance as a former car thief that has gone straight, only to be forced back into the business by the mistakes that his younger brother has made, played by Giovanni Ribisi. When I heard this movie was coming out I could only think of the 40 minute long car chase that was the highlight of the original 1974 film. I was glad to see that while the idea of the movie was the same they decided to stay away from certain angles of the original film that just seemed to drag out or seemed dated.
Over all this movie was exciting and had a lot of great stunts. My favorite character of the movie was the silent and completely mysterious character "Sphinx" played by Vinnie Jones.
Definitely worth …
