To foil an extortion plot, an FBI agent undergoes a face-transplant surgery and assumes the identity and physical appearance of a ruthless terrorist, but the plan backfires when the same criminal impersonates the cop with the same method.
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

Right after the film's release, Eleanor replicas based on the 1967 Mustang have skyrocketed, this forced Denice Shakarian Halicki to file a copyright for Eleanor's likeness and she successfully won a court case against Carroll Shelby in 2008, his company, Carroll Shelby Enterprises, had a licensing agreement with Unique Performance in Farmers Branch, TX where his continuation series of Shelby Mustangs were produced until the company was closed in 2008 in response to law enforcement raids regarding VIN (vehicle identification number) irregularities and the lack of a just-in-time inventory where the Shelby continuation series were not delivered to customers. As of 2014, Classic Recreations of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is the licensed manufacturer of the Eleanor replica used in the film using 1967 Mustang fastback bodyshells supplied by Dynacorn Restoration Bodies.

GONE IN 60 SECONDS was one of the most fun experiences I've had at the theater in the last couple of years. Though a little too long and not really full of action until the final twenty minutes, it moves well and has a good cast: Nicolas Cage, Will Patton, Robert Duvall, Giovanni Ribisi, Delroy Lindo, Christopher Eccleston, and others. Angelina Jolie is the only weak point. She's in desperate need of a talented hairstylist, and while she's hardly a good actress, she really doesn't do much in the film when you look at it, which is a good thing. But the film has style and a good pace, with some great theft scenes, well-spotted humor, and a final chase that (while not among the greatest ever filmed) is certainly a wild ride. GONE IN 60 SECONDS isn't a great film, but it sure as hell is fun.
