Trivia.
1)Executive producer Steven Spielberg was binge watching Breaking Bad & decided along with the director that Aaron Paul shouldn't play the villain, but the lead instead.
2)A majority of the car stunts in the film were done practically using car shells, with hardly any VFX used. The body shell for the Konigsegg, a $4.6 million supercar, cost roughly $300,000.
3)Taylor Kitsch, Liam Hemsworth, Brenton Thwaites & Luke Bracey were considered for the lead role but in the end, Aaron Paul was cast.
4)Aaron Paul is better known as Jesse Pinkman in the critically acclaimed 'Breaking Bad'.

Plot Synopsis.
Fresh from prison, a street racer who was framed by a wealthy business associate joins a cross country race with revenge in mind, His ex-partner, learning of the plan, places a massive bounty on his head as the race begins.

Timelord Thoughts.
I didn't expect much from this movie as I assumed it to be either a Fast & Furious rip off or another dire video game movie adaption so my expectations in seing this movie were low.

Yet now having seen the movie I really don't get why the critics have blasted this movie as hard as they have, The film is called Need For Speed & it does what it says on the tin, fast crazy chase scenes, gorgeous cars & hot women.

I was expecting great car chasers,crashers and a sense of speed without silly unbelievable cgi moments and got it big time but i was not expecting a story with as much heart and Aaron Paul being that good!,have never seen Breaking Bad,the rest of the cast are good and some laugh out loud fun parts and all the cars are cool especially the Shelby Mustang,i want one!.The DVD up scaled great on the Blue Ray Player,i don't have and am not bothered about surround sound so don't see the need to put up with loud action and low dialogue with possible grain on Blue Ray discs anymore just to get some moments of better contrast,so unless you want the deleted scenes or the Director commentary with Scott Waugh and Aaron Paul which only comes on the Blue Ray or have surround,the DVD does fine,cool yellow case to match up with the cover too,unlike the standard blue cover of the Blue Ray.

Now normally i detest any films to do with cars or racing. How wrong i was with this film? 100% wrong. Purely by chance did i happen to watch it at the cinema and you know what. It is undoubtedly the best film I've seen this year. It was that good i went to the cinemas again to watch (and that is something i have never done before). The cast was brilliant and i loved Aaron Paul in this role. It's witty, real, humorous and thrilling to watch. A must watch for everyone of all ages.

The last time most people saw Aaron Paul was when he was victoriously driving out of a compound filled with dead white supremacists. Of course if you haven’t seen the smash TV series ‘Breaking Bad’ that will probably mean nothing to you (but I do recommend you watch it!). However, if, like many, you enjoyed the series where Aaron Paul was an integral part, you may realise that him starring in ‘Need For Speed’ isn’t that greater step in his acting career.

He basically plays the same sort of character with a few minor differences. This time he races fast cars, but was deliberately framed for the death of a teammate during a race and sent to jail for five seconds (okay, two years, but his sentence was severely glossed over in film-making terms!). Now he’s out and racing across America for big money stakes (and trying to clear his name while he’s at it).

A lot of people are liking Need for Speed with the ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchise. It has similarities – mainly the car racing and high speed stunts in case you hadn’t already worked that out! But I think there’s room for both, as Need For Speed seems to manage to squeeze enough originality into the genre.

I hear it’s even based on a computer game. I haven’t played the game, but I’m guessing this movie adaptation is a damn sight better than Streetfighter or Super Mario Bros!

If you’re a fan of the Fast and the Furious-type movies and/or Aaron Paul in general, you should enjoy this. Imogen Poots is the obligatory love interest and she gets better as the film goes on. At first she seems a bit like a fish out of water (or a posh British girl trying to pass herself off as an American streets racer), but, once she drops the ridiculous sunglasses, she settles into her role a little more.

Most reviews of this movie have been criticizing how predictable it is. It is predictable. But it's still great. Even if you don't love cars, you'll still love it. You forget about the predictability when you are gripped with the exciting action, and even though you know what is going to happen, you'll still love it. Highly recommended, even for non car fans.
