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).

if you played and loved the need for speed videogames, this is the movie for it. so many things to spot and recognise from the game. the movie went fast even for it's slightly over 2 hours running time and it was rather enjoyable.
well done. so many movies tie in are crap. this wasn't. on the contrary!

Basically a revenge story given a fast and furious twist but OK. I thought some of the storyline a little far-fetched (an ex-military friend manages to commandeer a US Army helicopter??!!) but the cars were good, there wasn't that much racing, and at over 2 hours I thought it could have been trimmed down a little. But that said certainly was not a waste of viewing time. Is it just me or did anyone else get reminded of Declan Donnelly most of the time Aaron Paul was on screen?

NEED FOR STORY!

This film is terrible.
Aaron Paul (great in Breaking Bad) snarls his way through cliches, over complicated back story, strange set pieces and actually only about 10 minutes of racing.

The cars are impressive, however the premise of 'winner takes losers rides' is a flawed when every other car is destroyed in the race.
That said, if you're looking for a movie where Michael Keaton sits down throughout looking at a computer monitor, this is the film for you.

I'm a huge Aaron Paul fan and a car enthusiast so this movie was perfect for me, especially seeing as I grew up with the Need for speed Games. But I genuinely thought the acting was top notch and I enjoyed the 'cliche' story that all the critics seem to bash. It's sad that the film has been so heavily critised cause I personally thought it had everything.

Thrills, fun and cool hyper cars but some heart to the story as well, Aaron Paul is great but the rest of the cast apart from a excellent Micheal Keaton are only average, still the rest of it makes up for it and no silly over the top CGI like in the past few fast and furious films and all the better for it, great blue ray picture too.

This film is what I describe as 'watchable' - it's has some great action scenes, car chases and races.
Good acting performances too, although nothing worthy of an Oscar. It's a little slow to get started and has predictable ending, but I enjoyed it.

This is a film cross between "Cannonball"movies and "Gone in 60seconds" with a "Fast and Furious feel to it.
I got the Need For Speed game on game cube and Need For Speed Most Wanted on xbox and it's a cross between both
