There's nothing to distract you from a plot so tired there are tire tracks from other racing movies all over it. show more
Do not attempt to see this film, derived loosely from the videogame of the same name, unless you're prepared for wobbly writing, lead-footed direction and acting that must have been boosted by nitrous-oxide injectors, plus a starring performance that could have used a boost and didn't get one. show more
It's the cars, and the mega-horsepowered action, that matter most. With its driver-POV spinouts, wrong-way chases, and multilane median jumps, the movie is a roaring revel of an automotive fantasy. 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!
