An exciting return to the great car-culture films of the 1960s and '70s, when authenticity brought a new level of intensity to the action, "Need for Speed" taps into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing.
The story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country race against time-one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption.

Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, Dream Works Pictures' "Need for Speed" captures the thrills of the game in a real-world setting.
With too much exposition and not enough spark between the characters, it's as if the overlong 130-minute film will live up to its title for all of the wrong reasons. Actually, when I had blu ray sitting on my tv stand, I debated on just skipping it all together. This is exactly what it sounds like, a big dumb, fun action movie, and it's entertaining as hell!
A "Fast and Furious" knock off starring Aaron Paul(aka Jesse Pinkman) doesn't really scream out awesome movie. This movie is a real blast of just mindless entertainment.
Or how Aaron Paul is established to be the best driver ever and the car he drives the fastest car ever, yet even a truck can catch up to him.
In a last attempt to save his struggling garage, blue-collar mechanic Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul)-who with his team skillfully builds and races muscle cars on the side-reluctantly partners with wealthy, arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper).
The story is generic(Paul has to enter a race to avenge his friends death), but the performances are good and the action is fantastic.
This has some of the best race/car chase scenes I've seen in movies in a long time. This may not be as good as some of the "Fast and Furious" movies, but it's just as fun and entertaining. Need for Speed seems to have all the ingredients to be the start of a cool film franchise - great leading man, cool supporting cast, beautiful cars, and the budget to make it all happen.
Aaron Paul has some great qualities that should set him up for a good film career. But it's like this movie went out of its way to be disappointingly stupid.
Things like one character always showing up in different helicopters kept having me think - how are you plausibly doing this?
