Need For Speed The Movie

image It’s opening day for the Need For Speed Movie and since I’ve been a fan of the franchise for years (and am currently playing The Run) I decided to take a chance and see what the movie was all about. Overall it was quite decent with some really neat cars, a few tense moments and when it was all over it made me want to jump behind the wheel and race across the country. But that’ll have to wait until I get home and can get The Run loaded up.

Don’t expect this to be an award winner or a movie full of intricate plots twist and some sort of surprise ending. It’s exactly what you think it is and that’s not a bad thing. There are some wickedly powerful and sexy cars, wild driving, police chases and helicopters that come swooping out of the sky. There’s a couple of ridiculous moments to, but you can look past them.

It does what it’s supposed to do – entertain. It brought out some boyish glee with the cars they chose – some of the rarest and most exotic cars built. It also made me cringe as some of those same cars met their doom.

It looks and plays just like a Need For Speed game right down to hearing the voice of the cops over the radio talking about spike strips, calling for backup, "in pursuit of the silver Mustang" and so many other things you’ve heard while speeding down the highway. It made me laugh a couple of times thinking, "this is where I would hit the NOS and head up on the shoulder to make my getaway."

I had a good time with this movie. All things considered they did a pretty damn good job of bringing the computer game to life. It was an exciting thrill ride and if you have any interest in exotic cars or you’re a fan of the series, it’s worth checking out. Don’t get hung up on the details. Just get into the rhythm that there are some insanely expensive and powerful cars on some twisty ass roads with some high speed driving and you’ll have a good time.
