Tobey Marshall, a mechanic, races muscle cars in an underground circuit. Struggling to keep his business afloat, he reluctantly partners with wealthy but treacherous Dino Brewster. However, Dino frames Tobey for a crime that sends him to prison. Two years later, Tobey is out and bent on revenge; his only chance to take down Dino is to beat him in a high-stakes race. But to get there in time, he must successfully evade an army of cops and bounty hunters.
Now, I am just going to say it this, it is not a good movie, but it is not bad either. I was really surprised by my reaction after watching it. I do not like movies like this at all. This one was a bit different than I expected.
The story is a bit of a joke. It is a story of revenge and winning an illegal street race using the best and most expensive sports cars in the world. That is the whole story. It is a movie made based on a video games, so what do you really expect. I know not that much.
The best part of the whole movie were the car crashes. They looked so bad and cool at the same time. You see these million dollar cars spinning in the air and bouncing off the asphalt. It was something that you would not want to see in real life, but in a movie you kind of like it.
This was a movie that may be worth watching once, but I do not know about watching it over and over. It was just really a one shot deal. Enjoy.
