Storyline

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.

Trivia

In one of the earlier drafts of the script, it included various things from Gone in 60 Seconds (1974). For example, Memphis puts on a disguise that makes him look like an old man when he goes to steal Eleanor (the same way the lead character in the original did). Also, the reason why Sphinx was called Sphinx was because he originally was written to have no nose (similar to the famous structure in Egypt), and that he had a pair of glasses that added on a fake nose that he wore only during the overnight boost.

Goofs

During the rapid cuts between cars the crew are bringing in, the audience can clearly see the XJ220 drive by for about one second, though it's a close cut. However, the XJ220 doesn't get any more screen time until the very end, when Sway brings it in at the last minute. Sway is delivering a car that we already saw get delivered. See more »

Action packed film taking your typical car chase to new levels of excitement.
12 June 2000 | by (Minneapolis, MN) – See all my reviews

What's in a name? If the name is Jerry Bruckheimer expect it to be filled with action.

In producer Bruckheimer's latest film, Gone in 60 Seconds, its all about the nomenclature. With character monikers like Kip, Sway and The Sphinx and cars idealized with names like Diane, Sue and the elusive Eleanor, it's only the non-stop action that keeps you from wanting to just play the name game.

Not a deep script by any means, but it is a great vehicle for action as Nicolas Cage as Memphis Raines, along with Angelina Jolie and Robert Duvall, comes out of car-thievery retirement to save his brother's life by stealing a list of 50 exotic cars in one night. A remake of the 1974 cult hit, this film may not be destined for the same cult status but it is entertaining.

Surprisingly, it's the action that keeps you watching not the acting. Although loaded with stars, none of them have standout performances, including a very weak performance by one of my favorite up and comers, Giovanni Ribisi. Even Jolie, coming off her recent Oscar win, is just a token love interest with hardly any screen time.

Can a series of beautiful cars and the car chases they become involved in make a great film? I think so. The film is a pleasure to look at and although one particular scene takes you into the realm of unbelieveablity, the action is non-stop and the suspense is compelling. Just be wary of other drivers fighting for a pole position as you leave the theatre.

3 1/2 out of 5
