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.

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 togetherWritten by

The Mustang has a 5.8 liter supercharged motor, but throughout the movie it makes the sound of a turbocharged motor. You can hear the turbocharger waste gates as the driver gets off the gas to decelerate. See more »
The race location is announced on the in-car computer as "Mendocino HWY 85 / 39.627127,-123.580595". Highway 85 bypasses San Jose, not Mendocino. Those latitude/longitude coordinates are for a spot on Branscomb Road, a rural road in northern California and nowhere near Highway 85. See more »
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 ...

Wouldn't Expect It To Be So Awesome!
Well when I saw the trailer for the NFS movie, I thought "No just no, it's going to be terrible" - Then I saw the cast of Aaron Paul (Breaking bad) and Dominic Cooper (The History Boys). I loved Dominic in The History Boys and like most people enjoyed Breaking Bad.
But alas, having some aspiring actors isn't going to make a movie. Then I came here and found at the time a rating of 8.4 from people who had viewed the NFS pre-release. So at that point I thought, OK I'll give it a shot, worse case scenario it ends up being like a bad Fast and Furious rip off.
NOPE! Was amazing, never a dull moment, didn't have any scene that was just utterly pointless (which almost every movie does), the acting was fantastic, the action was intense, and the soundtrack and effects were spot on! As a movie it is great, but for someone like myself who grew up on NFS and loves car's it is EPIC. There's a great scene in the end, that anyone who has played the NFS: Hot Pursuit series will instantly go "Yep, this is really NFS!"
The only reason I wont give it a 10/10 is because of some minor plot holes - But nothing to bad, and most people wouldn't even notice. Otherwise brilliant, wouldn't be surprised if this becomes the next F&F Franchise.
