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 »
Lower budget of "Gone in 60 Seconds" and "Fast and Furious"
7 October 3017: A Good rip off flick. When I was in college in the late 80's, one of my college professors told the class that every film or t.v show has been done once or twice. How true that is. The writer took ideas from films, "Gone in 60 Seconds" and "Fast and Furious" films. Scott Eastwood and his famous dad, Clint look like identical clones. Scott should change his first name to Clint and have Scott as his middle name. Overdrive is a fairly okay movie. It held my interest. I have seen worse flicks.
This film is Not ready for a theatrical release, which is why it is best seen from Red Box DVD rental or on cable television. The actors and actresses are fairly okay, but the cast of "Fast & Furious" films are much better and the story lines in the Fast films are better. Overdrive is okay for a lower budget flick. Pretty Latina, Ana De Armas is hot and sexy, just as she was in her film "Knock-Knock", but she has a long ways to go to match up with talented actresses like Charlize Theron or beautiful Spanish actress Penelope Cruz or beautiful Israeli actresses Gal Gadot and Moran Atias. Penelope, Gal, Moran and Charlize are the full package in looks, body and talent.
Stunts in this flick was so-so average. The driving around the cliff is a total rip off of the Fast & Furious films. Scott Eastwood has the cool looks and charm, but so far no macho lead actor can make those fast driving scenes look better than Vin Diesel. If you are bored with nothing better to do, sit down and watch this low budget version.
