Slow & Stupid, Fragmented, Amateur Acting, Misfits all over

I am quite astonished as to the plethora of high marks this film is getting, and especially over opening weekend. It's quite suspicious, although I do expect a trend to occur very soon with all the actual movie-goers who sat through this horrible action film to chime in and tell you how it really was - - where 3-stars here (out of 10) is actually quite generous.

The movie starts out very slow, and that pace continues as they try to build upon that. I don't mind slow starters, but you have to have quality and depth in the script to keep me excited or draw me in - and they fail here. The stories are fragmented - it was jumping from one thing to another and you're trying to connect the dots and wonder WTF is this here for? Some of these scenes are just plain stupid - like watching an interview / news from an ipad in the garage and acting like it's so important but the content doesn't make sense and it's really not. Some of the race scenes are definitely lacking excitement and the adrenaline rush. Weaving in and out through the city streets, run over some trash cans, and go through a tunnel, and that's the peaking point - - WTF? That's the first organized race scene, which includes a stone- faced Bieber driver who doesn't look old enough to drive. My God. The sh-t just don't fit.

The actors - - a lot of new ones, very young, Bieber-looking types, 1 or 2 African Americans, it's almost like they're trying to showcase these young perfect-faced-Bieber-types who have a ways to go in mastering their craft. They are not convincing to say the least, they do not draw you into the character, they do not rattle you or get you into the story. Fail.

I love Aaron Paul, great actor, but they tried to make him the big action star who doesn't say much, speaks in a low and cool tone, has a few quips, and everything he says is potent and memorable. A big FAIL here. I don't know if he doesn't play the part well enough or if I still see Breaking Bad dude or if the script just plain sucks, but it could be a combination of all the above. He just doesn't fit the part IMO - - and many felt this way during the previews. BTW - the Director (Waugh) has a very limited history, 2 films of which one I've never heard of (Step Into Liquid) - ?? and Act of Valor - which IMO wasn't well executed.

So a 3 out of 10 here is quite generous. And all I want is a quality story, great action, quality and believable acting, and an exciting plot. Nothing like that exists in this movie.

Best Authentic Race movie

Oh boy. Where to even start.

I suppose that first off I had way better expectations because I was a HUGE fan of Aaron Paul in Breaking Bad, considering it one of the most brilliant shows I have ever seen. I was let down. Thankfully, he wasn't the worst actor in this film. Every single other person was.

This is the first film I've seen that Imogen Poots had a lead role in, and I will probably never see one again. There were a couple of parts that I had hope for her, but it only lasted a few seconds until I was questioning if this was the first film she's ever been in. I was also unimpressed by Kid Cudi (Scott Mescudi)'s performance. He is one of my all time favorite music artists and that is definitely what he should stick to, music. I guess it's not really his fault that the script was so awful and he was required to recite "joke" after "joke" that they were trying SO HARD to make funny (failed immensely), but I figured he'd have the balls to say "I'm not reading this crap on camera." As far as the other actors and actresses, it would be a waste of my time to even say anything about them, because it is nothing good. I don't even want to get started on Michael Keaton's washed-up performance.

The entire movie flip flops between emotional scenes (which are anything but) and action scenes. None of this flows at all. The scenes where you're supposed to feel some kind of connection between characters does not succeed. Nothing builds you up to them and they're all really awkward and you will feel no differently about anyone or anything going on in the film. The action scenes seem like they were thought up last minute and felt very rushed. It was like they had a five minute time limit on each one or else someone was going to murder their family.

I guess one positive thing was the visuals, which were alright. That's probably where this movie is getting rated anything above a seven, it's from the gear heads (no offense to anybody.) There were some pretty bad ass cars that were nice to look at and some of the action scenes were done nicely (looked nice) aside from feeling hurried.

To wrap this up, this is one of the cheesiest and most predictable movies I have ever seen. I called everything that was going to happen in almost every scene because it's been done hundreds of times in hundreds of films, all executed in the same way. I'm still not sure why the synopsis starts with "fresh from prison" because how prison affected his life is touched nowhere in the movie. I know that isn't a big deal but for some reason that just bugs me.

If you must see this movie, make sure someone else is paying or you have a free rental up for grabs from your local video store.

Enjoyable

I was expecting this to be hardcore car racing action movie.

But this movie, Need for Speed, gave me pleasant surprise.

It has action but story is good too. Does not bore the viewer.

Director exactly know what needs to be fed to viewer in what quantity.

Acting is well delivered. Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots are matching pair, especially the eyes. Dominic Cooper delivers well too.

I had an impression that this movie will be in line of Fast and Furious. But it is not.

Both are good but different.

Overall, enjoyable movie.
