'ENJOYABLE WATCH' (BETTER THAN SOME SUGGEST)
on 21 July 2014
The film is based on the highly successful 'video-game' series 'Need for Speed''
first introduced in 1994 by 'Electronic Arts'
Street Racer 'Toby Marshall' has inherited his fathers business, they build high-
speed cars, trouble is the business is in debt, when former partner 'Dino Brewster'
(Dominic Cooper) who 'Toby' (Aaron Paul) has historic issues with, offers 'Toby'
a job to complete the construction of 'Dino's' 'Ford Mustang' for 25% of the sale
price, a return that could give the business a $500.000 minimum lift
Reluctantly 'Toby' and his friends accept the proposal...........when complete, 'Dino'
challenges 'Toby' to a race for the 25% fee......'Toby's' friend 'Little Pete' wants in
on the race, despite reservations 'Toby' agrees, sadly during the three car race
'Pete' is involved in a fatal crash.
'Toby' is held responsible by the law, despite the fact he wasn't responsible for his
'Toby' out on bail hears of a Cross-Country-Race called the 'Del-eon' which sets
off in 'San Francisco'
'Toby' faces a long drive to meet the sign -in deadline he is joined by 'Julia' (Imogen
Poots) who he'd met earlier with 'Dino' during the 'Mustang' deal, she wont take no for
an answer even though the parolee tries to scare her with his high-speed driving skills.
'Dino' gets wind of 'Toby's' intention to join the race, he places a bounty on his rivals
head, whoever stops him - collects.
This a a high-octane adrenaline rush with plenty of car-chase action along with intense
high risk racing sequences..........'Bears in the Air' ......'Smokey giving chase'
The film has been underrated in some quarters, visual content '5' -dialog '4'
(Don't miss the outtake during the credits)
( If you enjoy this one you might also want to take a look at 'Non Stop' another 'chase'
movie worth a spin.
