Bus bus bus,
This review is from: Need for Speed [DVD]  (DVD)
Having never seen breaking bad or played the computer game, i am reviewing this solely on the movie.
It is hard not to make comparisons to Fast and Furious as they are the lead movies in this genre, but this actually does better than expected.
Toby Marshall owns a custom build car garage and is approached by an old associate Dino Brewster to help him build a ford mustang, he offers him a quarter of the sale price to do it. Toby agrees.
They sell the car for 2.7 million dollars and Dino says he will race Toby and if Toby wins he gets the entire share of the Mustang Sale.
A tragedy happens and Toby goes to prison for manslaughter and grand larceny and spends 3 years in prison.
When he gets out he is determined to exact revenge and contacts the owner of the mustang and asks to borrow the car to participate in an illegal street race where he is up against none other than Dino.
I actually really enjoyed it, the 1st car crash scene blew my mind, it was quite simply the most spectacular car crash i have ever seen on film.
The racing was superb, Aaron paul is no Paul Walker, and was a bit wooden at times and some of the best moments came from the supporting cast. Rami Malek quitting his job springs to mind lol
I will definitely be buying this when it comes out.
