Such a great movie! Can easily watch it on repeat over and over again!

I remember when I used to play Need for Speed on my Nintendo DS. It was pretty cool to see a movie adaptation of it. Based on one of the most popular racing game series, the movie Need for Speed follows a man named Tobey who is jailed for the worst of crimes – murder. However, Tobey did not commit this crime, but was instead framed. When Tobey is released, his purpose is to get revenge. Tobey has a garage containing a really fast car that he can use to race. Will Tobey get revenge on the one who framed him? Or will he be taken down by bounty hunters who are ready to take his head? I was not too big of a fan of this movie and I wasn’t too thrilled by the acting. Rating: 2.5/5

I see this as a younger brother of Fast and Furious with a different mother. Not as good as its older brother, but it is an appealing movie to video game geeks such as myself.

Lackluster acting, O.K plotting,
but amazing, beautiful, and exciting car actions,
...and all without any CGI !

What an improvement.

(From now on, whenever looking at any of the 'Fast & Furious' franchise,.. I'm always going to think "but its only CGI".)

Great car racing sandwiched around a mediocre acting. The racing has great camera work and sound. You can fast forward to it to avoid the boring bits. It's based on a video game after all.

Some impressive car chase scenes and... that's it. The movie should be around 90 minutes, not 2 hours and 20 minutes! It's long, boring, and filled with actors either phoning it in, or incapable of giving a decent performance. Watch a criminal street racer try to get revenge on a slightly worse criminal while endangering the public and wiping out several cop cars in serious crashes. I like good popcorn movies, but at least try a little. The long gaps between crashes is boring... like a NASCAR race.
