Storyline

The story centers on two car thieves, brothers, who journey to the south of France for new opportunities and wind up in the cross hairs of the local crime boss. Andrew and Garrett Foster (Scott Eastwood and Freddie Thorp) are thieves who specialize in luxury cars, only the most expensive cars. They've been hired to steal a gorgeous Bugatti 1937 valued million euros, so they head to the south of France for the job. But they get caught, and Jacomo Morier (Simon Abkarian), the local crime boss who owns the Bugatti, doesn't take it lightly. In exchange for their lives the two brothers will have to steal a car from Max Klemp (Clemens Schick), Morier's arch-rival, and not any car, Morier wants them to steal Klemp's 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, his most prized car.

Not a Fast&Furious film
30 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film by chance in my local cinema. To begin with, it is nothing like some of the best actions from European creators, such as Taken, District B13, Transporter, etc.

The action is good enough, with a couple of silly moments. The leads are handsome, but they don't give the performance of their lifetime. Some good funny moments, very beautiful landscapes from France, stereotypical villains and very rare and exotic cars. The plot is also not very original and the directing is nothing special - it has no special vibes like the action/criminal films by Luc Besson, Pierre Morel or Olivier Marchal.

It is a "popcorn movie" not worse than the most of the recent films that stars like Nicholas Cage, Bruce Willis, Val Kilmer and even Robert DeNiro are part off. I believe that Scott Eastwood is getting better and better in acting, he just needs some more challenging roles, not just handsome guy for average actions and romantic films.

6,5/10 in order to stimulate more the European film creators and young actors.
