Excellent car chase scenes, and amazing stunts throughout. Aaron Paul is good and English actress Imogen Poots is Helen Mirren's twin in her 20's minus the boobs .lol
Yes its like Fast and Furious minus the famous actors. Sad part was the coming attractions showing the late Paul Walkers final film. Very sad and this film has great action.Should be out next month I believe. Overall if you like the action you have it in this film. Oops Michale Keaton has a role in this too.

This movie was decent, not spectacular - but I will admit that it had me on the edge of my seat for most of the car scenes. Definitely not for the squeamish behind the wheel as the cars and cinematography really bring you into 'the moment' when the racing is going on. Some my my favorite things in this movie - the Mustang as a tribute to Carroll Shelby (RIP), the Ford Torino (gotta love american muscle), the Koenigsegg Agera R - just because it's a Koenigsegg, and the ending - because I took my kids to that lighthouse last year over spring break!
I'll give it a thumb-up for viewing, the plot is like any car movie - pretty bleak, but the cars are stellar :)

A really good movie, lots of action with comedy thrown in for good measure. The only problem was I needed a rewind option so I could watch parts of the movie again. I will be purchasing the DVD as soon as it's released. Would love to go watch the movie again at the theater. Another good thing about the movie was that it wasn't filled with bad language like most are. I could actually allow my grandsons to watch this. The filming of the race scenes was the best I've seen.

If you love cars and speed and chases, you'll love this movie. It's about testosterone and it got my juices flowing for sure. It took discipline not to speed on my way home from the theatre. If you don't like cars, keep in mind that this movie is cheesy, cliche, trite, predictable and implausible. But I loved it! There is a bit of a love story in there to give women something to embrace but it's not well-developed and it's almost obligatory. I'd like to see one of these movies without the relationship issue and perhaps a female driver, who can give the guys a run for their money. Bonus: you get to see the 2015 Ford Mustang at the end and for a car lover that's pretty cool.

I'm so glad I saw this despite the critics said. The driving was great, and I think the story is just what it needed to be. It was funny at times, sad at times, and exciting most of the time. I think it was perfectly balance. I would watch this again in theaters as well as buy this on dvd/bluray
