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.Written by
The Dodge 6 in Morier's collection is authentic and belonged to Al Capone. See more »
In the opening scene where the BMW M4 turns into the path of the semi, the dashboard of the car shows the vehicle in park, something the car would not likely allow the driver to do while moving. See more »
The creators of this Movie should be charged and tried
I've been reading reviews on IMDb for about 6 years now and I never felt compelled to write one myself. However, the characters in Overdrive change this.
The two brothers are criminals to begin with. There is no reason to justify their crimes yet they are super- cool, stylish and over the top in every aspect. The two girls who are thieves themselves also possess the same excellent qualities like the boys do. That's just not it, one of them is okay to throw herself at any men, to be taken advantage of, she comes across. The other one is so annoying and treats the protagonist with utter disrespect that it's hard to be with her for just one minute for any men with a little sense of self- respect let alone be a life-partner but our protagonist can't imagine his life without her. I'm yet to see a character in any movie that has so low opinion about himself.
These protagonists display all the qualities of low-life, cheap, immoral, uncivilized, lowest of the low, small time thieves that should have been suffered in the movie yet they are portrayed like super- cool F**** who won it all in the end. Bad lesson for the young people.
