Nine Things About the Movie “Need For Speed”

1. This movie is based on a car racing video game. So you know it’s not going to be deep.

2. It’s also basically a 2-hour long Ford commercial.

3. But the movie is actually fairly interesting. It’s more entertaining, slightly more realistic, and not as stupid as what the “Fast & Furious” movies have turned into.

4. It’s about a former race car driver named Tobey and his friends. There is an ex-girlfriend and an old rival. There’s a plot. Stuff happens. People talk. They race cars. About twenty minutes into the movie you know the rest of the story. I figured out who was going to die, which would inspire Tobey to race for justice and revenge.

5. The story is ridiculous, but the acting is decent. The main female lead was not nearly as annoying as I expected her to be. And Michael Keaton almost steals the movie as a rich weirdo that sponsors a top-secret elite car race.

6. The movie was directed by Scott Waugh, who is an actual stuntman. He hated the fact that the “Fast & Furious” movies used computer-generated cars and races. He wanted to do all the car racing for real. Computer effects were only used to erase crew members and wires.

7. Waugh used up to 40 cameras at once to capture some of the scenes. A climactic crash scene lasted 12 seconds on screen, but took six hours to prepare.

8. The movie is worth seeing for its cinematography and driving scenes.

9. We certainly don’t need two car-racing movie franchises in the world. But if we have to have one, put “Fast & Furious” in the garage and give people the “Need for Speed”.

All the things you assume about "Need for Speed" are all pretty accurate; it is juvenile, another "Fast and Furious" type movie and it is pretty much from beginning to end a car race, car chase, car crash type movie. While you may not like that type of thing, "Need for Speed" thankfully has more going on than just what its videogame origin promises. Fortunately, Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), who plays Tobey Marshall, is a fantastic and passionate actor and he's joined by an entire group of actors and characters that will stick in your mind long after the film is over.

Watching the film, I couldn't help thinking that Tony Scott and Don Simpson left a mark on the world they have left behind. I kept thinking that it had that "Top Gun", "Beverly Hills Cop", "Days of Thunder" type feel to it. Everything in the film was just larger than life with beautiful sceneries, machismo splashed with comedy and characters that are as much over-the-top as the premise of their actions. Tobey Marshall is the `Maverick' type; loaded with skill but he can't seem to control it when he needs to. Maybe my love of those great Scott/Simpson/Bruckheimer movies of the 80s clouded my vision, but I felt it and it was a good thing.

Tobey Marshall is an A-class street racer and with that comes a strange sensation that you will have to have to overcome in order to enjoy the film."Need for Speed" is based upon a videogame and with that, you have to remember that this is absurdity. You have to think of "Need for Speed" as you would have thought about the Sylvester Stallone movie "Death Race 2000" from the 70s.

This is a great popcorn car flick. Not since the original Fast and Furious have I enjoyed a car movie so much. Just returned from watching Furious 7 and somewhere along the way the F&F franchise lost its way. I'm not sure what I'm watching anymore and was wishing Tom Cruise would show up to save the day!

As for Need for Speed. This movie is a car movie with plenty of great cinematography, cool cars (albeit replicas) and a decent story line. The soundtrack on Need for Speed also deserves a look on its own. Remember this is just a movie. Nothing is real in movies. It's all for great entertainment and that's all a movie like this is supposed to do!!

And I wouldn't mind a sequel at all.

Let me put it, this way, if you are looking for a meaningful plot, a plot that you wouldn't expect, or award winning acting this isn't your movie. Given that you are looking at Need for Speed....you should already know this isn't going to be that kind of movie. What the movie does have is plenty of action, some incredible cars, and Aaron Paul (too bad he doesn't say the 'B" word for you Breaking Bad fans). If you like Fast and the Furious, you will most likely enjoy this film. If you want to watch the next Academy Awards winner for best motion picture...keep looking.

This movie was Great! I seen Need For Speed in 3D when it was in the theaters! This movie filled the void that The Fast & Furious movies did since Furious 7 was under production. If you are familiar with the video games, the movie is a lot like it. In particular, this movie has elements of Need For Speed The Run. Good Video Game based Movie. If you like cars you'll enjoy this!
