An exciting return to the great car-culture films of the 1960s and '70s, when authenticity brought a new level of intensity to the action, "Need for Speed" taps into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing.
This has some of the best race/car chase scenes I've seen in movies in a long time. This may not be as good as some of the "Fast and Furious" movies, but it's just as fun and entertaining. Need for Speed seems to have all the ingredients to be the start of a cool film franchise - great leading man, cool supporting cast, beautiful cars, and the budget to make it all happen.
Or how Aaron Paul is established to be the best driver ever and the car he drives the fastest car ever, yet even a truck can catch up to him.
