A lot of people will be tempted to watch this film because of the involvement of Aaron Paul, who was one of the stars of the peerless Breaking Bad TV series. Paul is a blue collar worker named Tobey, who wants to take part in a high stakes illegal car race in San Francisco, organised by a villain named Monarch (Michael Keaton going through the motions in one of his usual slimeball roles). Tobey wants to win the race against a dumb rich guy named Dino, who caused the car crash death of Tobey's best mate. So, a big part of the film is about revenge. On the road-trip to San Francisco, Tobey is chased by the usual assortment of Keystone Kops, i.e. highway patrol cops who are presumably well trained to use pursuit vehicles, but who become strangely inept at the wheel at the mere sight of Tobey's American muscle car. There is a plentiful supply of action here, and if you are a petrol-head, you will certainly enjoy watching cars like a Pagani Zonda, Bugatti Veyron and Koenigsegg Agera go head to head on the road. Much as I like Aaron Paul, I don't think that this role was quite right for him, somebody like Nicolas Cage would have been better suited. Paul is convincing as a small-time crook, but he doesn't have the muscular presence to convince as a hard-man, which I think this film needed. Based on his wonderful work in Breaking Bad, I'm hoping that there is more to Aaron Paul's abilities than he is able to show in Need for Speed. Midnight Express is long overdue a remake, and I'm sure Aaron Paul would be absolutely brilliant taking on John Hurt's role as a long-term prisoner with a drug addiction.If you want to view a good chase movie which is more fun than this one, try Smokey and the Bandit. If you fancy a chase movie which has more of a raw edge, try Death Race 2000 (the original version).

Always a bit skeptical about games being turned into movies & this one was no exception. But the film is amazing, Aaron Paul does an amazing job in it. A must recommend for any fans of cars, the need for speed games & Aaron Paul.

If you love the roar of American mussel cars & super cars then this is the film for you. Ok the acting isn't great it's no Fast & Furious but the action is non stop fun if a tad unrealistic. Highly recommended for car lovers!

If you are going through Prime and simply can't find anything to watch, love fast cars and appreciate some good scenic views, then there are worse ways to spend your time than watching this.
The plot is so cliched and been done so many times before that you will just roll your eyes shortly after the film gets going. It's here, when the scene is set that you will either continue watching anyway, having firmly put aside any expectations about anything unexpected happening, or hit the stop button because you know exactly what is going to happen and aren't prepared to waste any more time.

If you choose the former you will be treated at times to some great camera work, watching some expensive cars on roads cutting through some beautiful landscapes at times. You will not be rewarded with any clever dialogue, or anything else clever from the script, you will just free your mind and enjoy all the things you know are coming. And they do, exactly as clockwork. You have seen this movie many times before, and many times better even, but an HD streaming provided me just enough eye candy that I didn't hit stop. I didn't care one iota about any of the characters, they were all hollow and miscast anyway so I had no desire to know how it ended, because I already knew how it would end and indeed it ended almost picture perfect to my expectations. That's why 3 stars is the most I can give it. Watchable if you are willing to detach your brain and accept the preposterous events that ensue. Don't spoil it for yourself by trying to apply reason to ANY of it. You know full well that a Mustang is not going to leave the tarmac at speed, go up a steep grass verge, leap over 4 lanes of traffic 15 feet above, land nose first and continue on like nothing happened and completely intact.

I was raised to adhere to the values of "if you don't have anything good to say, then don't say anything at all" and so on and so forth.

That being said, this is a terrible film and the acting is borderline Eastenders (that's a British soap opera - with a character played by an actor who was rejected by GoT multiple times - for those who don't know).

Please don't waste your time. Unless you're really really really into unrealistic car films with bad acting.

The awful theatrical trailers did this movie no justice when advertised as its really a very smart little actioner, the story is really fun and has many twists and turns along the way, it builds up better as it goes along right up to the big final race scene, the action is great, the car race and chase scenes are very well edited and have some cool originality to them, a different take on street racing than your fast and furious movies, the cars are hot and look awesome zooming around, there is smashes and crashes and cool stunts etc all to a cool soundtrack and a good cast! Its exactly what it says on the tin, its a cool speedy action/thriller worth checking out for a bit of fast and furious popcorn fun that's not too heavy on the brain!
The Blu-ray is great picture quality and it has a few good features too for the money!
