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).

This is a great film for fans of the Fast and Furious franchise. The plot is easy enough with Aaron Paul's character (Toby Marshall) seeking the money to save his dad's garage and eventually to avenge his friends death. A lot of the time I saw Jesse driving due to the intense blue eyes he uses to convey his concentration before a race but Aaron's brilliant acting really shines through. Dominic Cooper portrays your typical villain -lots of money, hot girlfriend (Dakota Johnson, Fifty Shades of Grey), and really fast cars. Of course he's the one that causes the death of Toby's friend who just happens to be his girlfriend's brother. SPOILER! I'm actually quite glad to say there wasn't a lot of romance connected to this film and i'll admit that until the end I wasn't sure there would be any much less which girl Toby would pick - the ex who lost a brother or the blonde, English girl who sits next to him for the whole movie. I think he made the right choice. The support cast provide humour to the film and show their loyalty to the main character. I can understand some people's reservations to this film as it really is a basic car film. However I certainly would watch this again, if not for the fact that I'm a romantic that loves to see a happy ever after but because some of the stunt are really cool! All in all a good film to kill a few hours. Looking forward to a sequel!

I'm glad that I never listen to film critics! This film got a bad Critical response from Rotten Tomatoes but then again if we only watched films that critics like, the world would be a very dark place indeed... Now onto the film... this isn't a fast and furious wannabe, I found the film fun, creative and had a great concept of speed (something I always hated about the NOS filled early F&F franchise. The only thing better than the camera angles is the sound track... from Marshal Motors to Switching Seats, the music gives the film real personality.

The cast is again brilliant, every actor nails the character they play.. Tobey's crew gives an impression that they really have been lifelong friends way before the film starts.. The love interest of Toby is Julia Maddon played by Imogen Poots, again hats off to the producer, 1) because I fancy her and 2) because her character actually brings a personality to the film as well as just a pretty face..

The clothing department might have been picked out by a guy straight out of a media course (bad guy wears black and good guys wear white right?) and some of the stunts do stretch the laws of physics.. I'm not talking about the grasshopper stunt, but rather the police car axle trick.. But that's the movies and I wouldn’t have it any other way...

What a awful film, and the 3D was just awful. I did read the film was originally shot in 2D, but then converted to 3D which rarely ever works, to tell you the truth we turned the 3D off with a hour of the film gone, but then again I wised I turned the film off, it was a complete joke.

Fun, thrills and some heart to the story not as in your face a revenge story as the trailer made out but very good all the same, Aaron Paul is great but rest of the cast hit and miss and do not hit it off like in the Fast and Furious films but no silly over the top CGI here just fun in your face stunts and a great sense of speed.The Blue Ray had a excellent picture and great sound and made the cool cars sound great.
