Kip Raines (Giovanni Ribisi) is a cocky young car thief working with a crew to steal 50 cars for a very bad man whose nickname is "The Carpenter." Being young and cocky, Kip messes up, so it's up to his big brother, Randall "Memphis" Raines (Nicolas Cage), to come out of car thief retirement and save him. With a cast that includes Robert Duvall, Angelina Jolie, Delroy Lindo, Cage, and Ribisi, it would be easy to say this story wastes all their talents--which it does, but that's not the point. This is a Jerry Bruckheimer film. A good story and complex characters would only get in the way of the action scenes and slow the movie down. No, Gone in 60 Seconds (based on the cult 1974 film of the same name) is not about the stars as much as it's about cars. Fast cars. Rare cars. Wrecked cars. All cars. Too bad director Dominic Sena (Kalifornia) doesn't come across as more of a gearhead; he seems less interested in fast cars than fast cuts. But is this movie fun? Absolutely, and it's fun because it's so stupid. With pointless car chases and hackneyed dialogue in one of the most predictable plots of the year, Gone in 60 Seconds is a comic film that's not quite a parody of itself, but darn close. --Andy Spletzer

I bought this hoping to find some extra footage tucked away nicely that might expand the story line a bit but to be honest, with the exception of a single seen near the beginning I didn't see anything I hadn't seen before. In fact, I actually think there was LESS footage than I'm used to - hence the 3 star rating.
Taken all and all, the premise is interesting enough, though predictable. Cage plays Memphis Raines, a car boost (thief) forced into retirement by his his mother in an attempt to protect his younger brother, Kip (Giovanni Ribisi) and prevent him from following in Cages footsteps. Of course this happens anyway and we find Cage being summoned back into the life of a car boost to make good on a contract his little brother botches. Into the mix we throw a few cops, a psychopathic Englishmen with a penchant for fine woodworking and a giant Bull Mastiff with a cast iron stomach and a sweet tooth for Mercedes keys.
While it probably wont make you split your sides laughing it never the less is a solid good time for anyone who likes car movies and isn't too put out by the liberties they tend to take.
As far as this particular product goes, I'd caution against it if you're a big fan. Get the regular version. It's actually better.
I give it a low rating as you are forced to watch several previews before getting to the menu. It's hard enough to click around on the PSP for movies, and yes, you can continue to attempt to skip them, but we should not have to deal with this annoyance. It should not even be an option. I bought the movie. Just put the damn feature film on the disc, along with relevant features, thats it.
