The best Michael Bay movie not directed by Michael Bay...? It certainly follows Bay's formula for turning the B-movie into high art: afford your simplistic, boilerplate storyline an inexplicably bloated runtime; shoot your frequent sequences of kinetic violence with a fetishist's eye for detail; and - perhaps most importantly - whenever possible, appeal to the Heartland. My advice to viewers: don't think. Just drive
Not too shabby a flick.Car stunts were some of the most impressive & least CGI'd I've seen in a good while.There's a slickness and no-nonsense demeanor about them; a certain Mann-y je-ne-sais-quoi that's quite becoming.The bridge sequence is prodigious and the filling-the-tank-while-in-transit is stellarly broken-down. Aaron Paul's deep voice mingles perfectly with the roars of the Ageras, Mustangs, GTOS and Veyrons.
Scantily-characterised car flick where the sound of the machines' engines makes as much impact as the dialogue. Aaron Paul is a very good actor and feels wasted in this role, as do Cooper and Poots. I'm not sure what Michael Keaton is doing here, but whatever it is it's all wrong. It's very much the kind of film Jesse Pinkman would love.
Worst film of 2014 thus far... I don't mind mindless entertainment if it's well made; exciting camerawork, inventive mise en scène, killer soundtrack CAN go a long way. However this movie is as dumb as they come, while having zero sense of Style or Wit or Charm or Sexiness. And to top things off... Aaron Paul is not a moviestar. I repeat: Aaron Paul is NOT a moviestar.
If you like Aaron Paul and cars this is for you. Actually, it was very enjoyable! Correct me if I'm wrong, but given it was inspired by a videogame franchise that doesn't have any particular story it's pretty good.
Uno degli esempi più lampanti del collasso totale del cinema d'intrattenimento (sempre per come lo intendono produttori e distributori): schizofrenico,di una noia mortale tra pipponi e inseguimenti,con maschioni e fiche ovunque. Mondezza assoluta.
