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.

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

Christopher Eccleston described this as a "terrible film in which I give a terrible performance," adding that, before Doctor Who (2005), people who recognized him mostly shouted, "'You were in 'Gone in Sixty Seconds,' mate! You were shit!' And I have to laugh at that, because I was!" See more »
As Freb is driving the '83 Cadillac Eldorado into Otto's, the paint appears to be a dull burgundy color, totally lacking luster from 17 years of fading. Even Otto tells Castlebeck that it needs "brightening." However, right after Castlebeck revs up the car and says, "Yeah, she got some power goin' on," scoffs, and then says, "All right," and gets out of the car, the trim around the windshield appears to be a very shiny, almost candy-apple red color.

This movie has taken a lot of stick. It was slated by critics when it came out and was blamed for wrecking Nicolas Cage's career. The thing I don't think people get is that it's not meant to be an epic, Oscar contender of a movie, it's just some brilliant "Bruck-buster" action at its best. Fast cars, quick editing and a great soundtrack - it does exactly what it says on the tin. Also, for anyone who likes cars its a pure treat. It has everything: Ferraris, Mercs, a Hummer and lets not forget Eleanor! I think you'd be hard pushed to find a better action movie, and personally, a better movie at all!! Then again maybe that's just me!
