In order to foil an extortion plot, an FBI agent undergoes a facial transplant surgery and assumes the identity and physical appearance of a terrorist, but the plan turns from bad to worse when the same terrorist impersonates the FBI agent.
A loyal and dedicated Hong Kong Inspector teams up with a reckless and loudmouthed L.A.P.D. detective to rescue the Chinese Consul's kidnapped daughter, while trying to arrest a dangerous crime lord along the way.
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

Calitri is said to have spent five years in prison in south London for manslaughter and immigrated to the USA in 1998 after serving his time. Those with a criminal record in the UK are not allowed to enter the US for 10 years, and it is likely his request to immigrate would have been denied based on his conviction for a violent crime. Further, they talk about him in connection with additional multiple crimes, such as loan sharking, fencing stolen goods and extortion, although it is not clear where he committed those crimes. Someone with such an extensive criminal record would not have been to immigrate to the United States at any point, and if had committed those crimes in the United States, he would have been imprisoned and then deported.

gone in 60 seconds is a very good action comedy film that made over $100 million but got blasted by most critics. I personally thought this was a great film. The story was believable and has probobly the greatest cast ever for this type of movie including 3 academy award winners nicolas cage, robert duvall and the very hot anjolina jolie. other than the lame stunt at the end this is a perfect blend of action comedy and drama. my score is **** (out of ****)
