Armed men hijack a New York City subway train, holding the passengers hostage in return for a ransom, and turning an ordinary day's work for dispatcher Walter Garber into a face-off with the mastermind behind the crime.
Car theft in Long Beach went down 47% when Randall "Memphis" Raines walked away from the life. He gets dragged back into it by assuming the job his brother Kip screwed up for stolen-car broker Raymond Calitri: steal 50 exotic cars and have them on a container ship by 8 AM Friday morning, and he got this news on a Monday. With Calitri threatening to kill him and Kip, and the police GRAB unit breathing down his neck, Memphis reassembles his old crew and attempts to pull off the logistically impossible. Written by

In the scene right before the foot chase with Johnnie D., Kip and Memphis are in the minivan (note the headrest). Then as soon as they are run off the road they are in a beat up old Chevelle. See more »
Simply put this movie was amazing. I won't go into any heavy details on the plot but, come on, jaw-dropping action, spectacular performances, a clear yet complex plot, and directing so above the bar it's touching the stratosphere, this movie is a thrill to watch again and again; and I didn't even count the inclusion of Angelina Jolie! Angelina is startlingly beautiful and seductive, with moments of wit and comedy throughout. She is a joy to watch and not simply as a pleasure to the eyes but as a treat for the soul. Her on screen chemistry with Nic Cage can only be described as "intense" as both actors seem on the break of real and pretend emotions. Nic Cage as always is brilliant and his pace and delivery are more thrilling than an adrenaline shot to the heart. I recently saw the trailer to Nic's next thriller "Trespass" and I've gotta to admit the amount of heart-racing action brought on a euphoric wave of nostalgia. Check out the trailer and then personally thank me for changing your life. http://on.fb.me/pchomT If you enjoy being entertained, GET THIS MOVIE. The bonus is that this movie will blow you away.
