Need for speed (2014)

A simple film about racing and speed, director Scott Waugh spaced out its highlights in a sensible manner to keep the audience occupied. There were enough moments to keep us guessing, tense, on the edge of the seat or purely entertained.

While it doesn’t have a convincing back story or a strong motive for the proceedings, the gang of four and the cool attitude of the protagonist Aaron Paul makes it watchable. Dominic Cooper does a decent job as the bad guy, while Imogen Poots provides classic British flavour as Julia. Micheal Keaton makes an interesting cameo, while we enjoy the changing landscapes of America and the coolest cars of the world.

2.5/5
