  • There's nothing to distract you from a plot so tired there are tire tracks from other racing movies all over it. show more

  • Though overlong and formulaic, two things keep this street-racing movie of interest all the way to the finish line. The first is Aaron Paul ("Breaking Bad"), a sensitive actor in his first major movie showcase. The second: some extraordinary racing sequences. show more

  • Ostensibly meant to be light entertainment. If light is synonymous with preposterous, frenetic and noisy, it qualifies. show more

    My opinion I thought the movie was amazing! Well reason I maybe one of a very few that rates this 5 stars because I love cars and finally a racing movie that have nothing but racing involved! I loved the story line! And I think Aaron Paul did an amazing job! My one and only question was whatever happened to the guy that owned the 2014 Mustang that Toby (Aaron Paul) ended up wrecking there should have been quite an outcome for that bit other than that I put this as my favorite move as far as cars!

    See it at a matinee, when you have NOTHING BETTER TO DO on a Sat/Sun. Oh...and sneak in your own popcorn and 20 oz. Cherry Pepsi, since the theater was dumb enough to choose this movie for their line up.

    Need for speed was a great movie! Filled with action, fun, and also heartfelt. The directing was great and stunts were very impressive. I can now say I am a huge fan of Aaron Paul!
