Storyline

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

Trivia

According to director Scott Waugh, the cast all took stunt driving lessons. In the scene where Tobey returns to Little Pete's crashed car, Aaron Paul repeatedly skidded 15' short of his mark because he was afraid of hitting the director, who was filming the shot. Waugh told Paul to TRY to hit him. Waugh had someone holding his belt, and told him to pull him out of the way, but only if he was hit. Paul did the shot on the next take, coming within 2" of hitting the camera. In one continuous take, the Koenigsegg does a 4 wheel drift right up to the camera, with a closeup of Aaron Paul's face in the window, then Paul jumping out of the car. 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.

A Rich Video game Fan kid tries to make a movie
15 July 2014 | by (Vitoria, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I don't know how even start how bad this movie is. Dreamworks really approve this? How dare EA just spit on a long time Need for Speed franchise like this.Seriously! From my understanding there is only one answer for that, a very rich video game fan kid asked his daddy for a sweet sixteen present, make a movie. The screenplay is painful and unwatchable, the story make no sense, there is more plot holes than a swiss cheese, the acting ..Wow... aside of the millions of dollars paid to Michael Keaton to explain the obvious throughout the movie, and the hard attempt of the kid from Breaking Bad break into the film industry, the rest are probably all classmates, relatives and random people trying to act. What drives me nuts, is How quite a large and good production (66M), spend not only time but money in a script like that. Predictable, Flat, No sense, Amateur dialog and so on. Bless God I didn't watch this on the theaters otherwise for the first time in my life I would ask for a refund at the box office.
