Wow so I just returned from seeing need for speed based off the popular plotless video game series. Well those of you hoping for a two hr and ten minute adaptation that sticks close to the source material are in luck because this film is dreadful. Undeveloped barely one dimensional characters, an endless amount of cliches, uninspired direction, some truly terrible editing, sloppily executed cinematography and non existent 3-D. It's just too bad that Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul the main reason I saw the film shows up in a star vehicle doomed to fail and with a one note unintentionally funny, overly dramatic and forced brooding "I swear I'm a bad ***with a heart of gold " performance. Along for the ride are lots of annoying supporting characters a metro sexual non threatening villain and lots of pretty cars that get bashed up in the most ridiculous ways. those searching for a shred of believably should turn their sights on the fast and furious franchise.

Really really good! Better than I thought. Not a slow, boring moment in the whole movie! No need to to see it in 3D though! I loved this movie!

The "revenge after getting out of jail" theme has been used repeatedly by Hollywood. You may be a little bit bored by this latest usage of the idea.

Simply once a video game made into a movie. I am glad it stuck to as is. The movie was just like the video game and the directors stuck to it! Thats what made this movie epic!!!

I believe anyone that likes sports cars will enjoy this movie, but I think teens will enjoy it the best. It has some morals written into the film that teens can check out. Also, the main characters are really young in this movie. The movie is full of action. It has a little romance in it. The writing was great. The writer was not afraid to touch life issues in the movie, and there was also a touch of humor. The movie had some really nice outdoor (land) scenes in it. I liked it. I thought it was really good. The only bad thing I noticed was a little bit of nasty language in it. Most teenagers can probably handle the issues in the film.
