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. ***Jim***Sleepy Hollow, IL

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!!! Rate 2/5 9/10 91/100

Not an Academy award winner, but a fun movie with lots of action, racing, and crashes. Saw it in 3D. Not sure it was worth seeing it in 3D. They had a few 'token' 3D effects, but the movie would be enjoyable in 2D too.
