Selena did a pretty good job...

This movie contains a steady flow of language and taking of Our LORD's name in vain. Has great action scenes. Besides the language content, definitely worth your time.

GT Mustang Cobra was of course the one that delivered a non-stop packed punch of racing and roaring all the way through this movie and with the help of supporting actress Selena Gomez did a pretty good job in acting out her character. I give it 3 stars ***

The real movie critics that actually get paid to see this that actually saw this instead of skipping it bashed this movie to death.Unfortunately,i strongly agree with them about how bad it really is.You can clearly see how bad it is.The cinematography is extremely ugly.One explosion scene made no sense to me whatsoever because it seemed like it happened for no reason.Selena Gomez's character was so annoying she would put you in an extremely early grave if you were her husband or boyfriend.Ethan Hawk looked like he really didn't want to do this film at all,never mind having fun doing it.Worst of all,the driving was done with the most TAME sense of speed i have ever seen for car chases in an action/adventure film period.Even the car crashes are very LAME unlike Hollywood's best of the best car crashing film sequences that were produced before this turd.This is the kicker though:Joel Silver is one of the executive producers and Moshe Diamant is one of the producers,but it really doesn't seem like they funded this train wreck.I expected nothing less than destructive greatness coming from these 2 titans of some of the best Hollywood action/adventure films i have ever seen,making this crap totally inexcusable.

In this movie the cars were the stars. Ethan Hawke was passable and the screenwriter must be a mysogynist because he made the Selena Gomez character so unlikable. Watch this movie if you like cars and crashes.

I thought that this was a very good movie, despite what other people are saying. I agree that at some points it got a little boring, but overall this movie definitely deserves the 4 out of 5 stars I gave it!

Worst.Movie. Ever.Unwatchable mostly cuz of Selenium Gomez. I worked as an Extra on Regression starring Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson which just wrapped. It shows alot more promise than this piece of shiite.
Be sure to look for Regression in about a year.
neonkc and Tigger67 are obviously developmentally handicapped. Can't use the "R" word. Too PC but that's what they are.

I grabbed this movie for something to watch and didn't really have any expectations. I was pleasantly surprised that overall it wasn't a bad movie. The concept was interesting, but I felt the writers could have done a better job on the story-line. I felt the characters needed to be more developed as you had the sense you were "missing" something and at times needing to fill in the blanks. It definitely had the feel of the old car chase movies of the 60s-70s which gave it a different edge then some of the newer type movies. I didn't feel like I wasted time watching this one.

Other: Swearing, rude gestures and lots of intense action scenes are in this movie. Definitely for a more older crowd of viewers.
