Framed by an ex-partner for a murder he did not commit, Tobey Marshall, a financially struggling custom-car builder and street-racer, spends two years in jail thinking about one moment. Fresh out of prison he reacquires the fastest car his workshop ever built and sold, and seeks to enter a secretive and extremely high-stakes race known as The DeLeon. His purpose; redemption, recognition from the world of racing and to solve his problems. Yet all this fades in comparison to his driving reason. Revenge. Above all, revenge. This is a story about love, redemption, revenge and motor oil all swirled together, but above all; It's a story about fast, fast cars. Written by Chase Game Reviews

Did You Know?


The Bugatti Veyron in the De Leon race at the end of the film is painted to look like the Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition, but is in fact a standard Veyron. One of the telltales is the roof air scoops, which sit on top of the roof on the standard Veyron (as shown in the film), whereas the Super Sport's scoops are incorporated into the roof itself.

When Monarch was in his office and the police helicopter was chasing the racers, the video camera inside the helicopter was showing in Monarch's computer feed and same showing for us to see as well. And helicopter can't go as fast as the cars but in this movie, helicopter sped the cars at their top speed to make a trap ahead (road block) See more »

Monarch: Hey, I've been doing some homework on this kid Tobey Marshall from Mount Kisco. This kid was a phenom. Used to tear up the local circuits. Him and his dad, man, they campaigned like champions. Of course, Mount Kisco had another great, Dino Brewster. You all know Dino. He went on to race in the big leagues at Indy, and Toby just kind of fell through the cracks. Well, here's some news, cretins. Tobey's been running again, and running fast. Real fast, fast as that "Grim Taquito" will ...

Truly awful, couldn't get through it, tried twice.
15 November 2014 | by (sydney) – See all my reviews

Who the hell rated this movie so highly? I was interested in seeing Jessie from Breaking Bad in a different role but its just not worth it. I think this may indicate he is a one hit wonder. Even Tokyo Drift which is the worst of the FF franchise is better than this movie. Michael Keaton's character is so annoying that each time he came on I reached for the off button. Otherwise, I don't even know where to start. this looks like a slick movie to begin with but nose dives after about 15 minutes. The plot is so unbelievable from the perspective of risk vs reward it just doesn't seem plausible to the point of being ridiculous. When I watch these type of movies I don't expect much I just crank up the volume to feel the engine notes but this is really disappointing in all respects, trust me this is probably only watchable for 12 year old intellects. Don't waste your time.
