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 Written by Chase Game Reviews

Goofs

When Monarch was in his office and the police helicopter was chasing the racers, the video camera inside the helicopter was showing in Monarch's computer feed and same showing for us to see as well. And helicopter can't go as fast as the cars but in this movie, helicopter sped the cars at their top speed to make a trap ahead (road block) See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
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. Real fast, fast as that "Grim Taquito" will ...

For god sake, who approved this script?
13 March 2014 | by monteiro974See all my reviews

I'm trying to swallow this movie, but so far I just couldn't.

I will be brief because this thing don't deserve more than a few lines from me, first the acting is poor from the beginning to the end, the characters are flat and history doesn't make any sense on the real world, I know that this is a movie based on a game and I may not expect too much, but this movie is a catastrophe.

There are several dramatic scenes that should make you feel something about the characters but you don't feel nothing at all, specially because everyone of the dramatic sequences are fallowed by an unrealistic and illogical event, you have to watch it to understand...

The races are boring, the action on the movie is kind of lazy, you feel like there are lots of ultra expensive cars running at 40 miles per hour and a Parkinson guy holding the camera.

So if you want to get a big disappointment watch Need for Speed.

If you don't believe me and want to watch this pearl make something as you watch, do the math and calculate the profit, you will know what I mean when you finish the movie.
