All Critics (141) | Top Critics (37) | Fresh (33) | Rotten (102) | DVD (38)

In this film we learn that it takes 8,000 lbs. of pressure to crush a car but only one credited screenwriter (Scott Rosenberg) to pound out such a lame script.

TIME Magazine
Top Critic

Perfectly dreadful in every respect, this big-budget remake of the late H.B. Halicki's 1974 indie hit may well rep the nadir of the Bruckheimer (and Simpson) franchise, and doesn't even rate on the most basic level as a good car-chase picture.

I found it more pleasurable as a time waster than either Mission: Impossible.

Where the original had too many car chases and not enough plot or characterisation, this has too much plot, too many characters and not enough metal crunching, tyre squealing action.

Sixty seconds is all a professional car thief needs to steal a car. It takes about the same time for a moviegoer to know he or she is watching a Jerry Bruckheimer movie.

It's loud, pointless, and tedious, and almost ruins a classic crime flick.

It's just kinda dull though, unless you get excited by 60s Thunderbirds, Chevies and wot not.

So clumsy is the film that while our 'heroes' are 'boosting' their 50 cars in 24 hours, the audience never has a clue how many they have successfully stolen.

This is another one of those films that fits into the "it is what it is" category, only it's better than that. It is what it is and does it really, really well.

What makes such threadbare character development all the more insulting is that Gone in Sixty Seconds has assembled a war chest of acting talent and then let it idle.

Audience Reviews for Gone in 60 Seconds (Gone in Sixty Seconds)

A remake, but one can easily say a remake worth doing and with satisfactory results. Well if you like shallow flashy action films with standard Bruckheimer sunset visuals, one could almost say...Bay porn.

'Randall "Memphis" Raines' (Cage) is back in town but just as quickly he's got a problem that's gonna involve nicking cars again. His brother has pissed off a British crime boss for not completing his task so 'Memphis' must steal 50 cars in one night to bail his bro out of trouble.

Fast n easy story telling here folks, no beating around the bush, once the plot is established we get a quick team recruitment montage ('Armageddon' with car jackers) and then we're off. If you like cars and enjoy seeing car porn then this film is for you, 50 luscious cars all filmed as if they were lingerie models, with various individual motors given special Bruckheimer camera treatment.

The characters are cliched and unimportant, a kinda of greasy 'Ocean's Eleven' motley crew that are there purely to garner the odd giggle. Admittedly here and there this is accomplished but its no riot by any means. We don't learn much about these people, only that they all have skills in pinching cars, a team of super car thieves, best in town, all led by the daddy Robert Duvall.

Some good character actors in the cast/team, Scott Caan who is used to teams with the first two 'Ocean's' films, Will Patton from another well known Bay/Bruckheimer flick, decent actor Giovanni Ribisi and of course Jolie who looks like an unwashed skank.

What I do find amusing is the way car thieves are treated in this. Cage's character is given real hero status with a 'Robin Hood-like' persona and his own emotional score. Its almost as if the film is trying to say car jacking is cool, OK and will get you laid. I also agree with Cage's character towards the end when he turns up with the last car. He's managed to steal 49 cars in one night, all in perfect condition and he's just turned up with the last, 12 mins late, yet the British crime boss with the awful Lancastrian accent (Christopher Eccleston) still isn't happy!. I'd be like...'f**k you!', really I would.

As you would expect every visual aspect of this film looks scrummy, as slick n shiny as...err an oil slick, yes that's right. The cars thunder around with their engines amped up good n proper, but this being a US film the Mustang gets all the focus, the Yanks love their Mustang (despite the fact they stole a Jaguar XJ220! I think that's better). In fact you could say this film is an extension of the car chase in the 'The Rock', remember? with that yellow car, whatever it was. Its just like that visually, but with more sunsets.

So yeah, 'Top Gun' with cars and a bunch of dirty quirky characters, plus Cage acting sensibly for once accept in one scene. High production values and you know where most of that went, the cast of cars is impressive and does make you drool. Yet I saw no Evo's, Impreza's or Skylines.

A pure slice of popcorn silliness that isn't suppose to be anything else. Its simple fast n furious fun with fast sexy cars, quick quips and lots of smash ups. If you don't know to expect this then you clearly don't know about Bruckheimer films.

I've never been fond of the idea that people should lower their expectations and feel the need to say that action movies are harmless entertainment and shouldn't be judged any higher than that. This is one of those film's that you have to judge for what it is, taking the bad with the good. Now, if for some bizzare reason you decide to watch Gone in 60 Seconds expecting something great, you have to understand beforehand that you're sinking your teeth into a shlocky Jerry Bruckheimer exploitation remake. My expectations were pretty low and thankfully, the film actually exceeded them. It may feature the paper thin characters expected in Nicolas Cage action movies but the car chase scenes are nevertheless well choreographed even if they never come close to being as ruthlessly brilliant as the original. I suppose the primary dissapointment with this lies in how lazy and generic it is in comparison. But the fact that it never bored me and had the rare; "so bad that it's actually good" quality to it that countless other Bruckheimer produced blockbusters have failed to flesh out, this is an unremarkable if tolerable movie. Where as the original was a heartfelt product from the intelligence of a single director this is a hyperactive, action cliche B movie designed by committee. It too often wastes it's brilliantly talented cast and focuses on it's fast yet occasionally dull and unnecessary car chases. I thought it was stylish enough as popcorn entertainment even though it lacked a comprehensibly told story. It's solidly passable but watching it I quickly figured it was one of those films you see motorheads at a garage watching while on break. So, this film was put into production to make a whole lot of money, and it did. But did it rip me off in the process, not really.

Remake of the film of the same name, Gone in 60 Seconds is an entertaining film, but lacks so much in everything else. The film delivers on the action, but it lacks any story depth, and a good cast (aside from a few actors, the talent here is awful). The film fails to capture the essence of the original (which was a decent flick, but only worthy to watch for its chase scene that nearly spans the entire film). I felt that this film lacked anything good to truly make something extremely thrilling, and memorable. The problem I had with Gone in 60 Seconds was the acting, and story. The film isn't too thrilling and has a predictable plot that doesn't really satisfy. Like many reviewers have stated, the only great thing about the film is the cars. I love that Mustang in the film, and along with Bullitt's Ford Mustang GT390, its one of the sexiest Mustangs in film. But that's really where it ends. Gone in 60 seconds is simply a mess of a film with bad acting, and not even the car chase could save this picture. The film was entertaining, but it lacked too much substance to make it worth watching. I've seen the film when it first came out, and didn't think much of it. If you want the best car chase film, watch Bullitt instead. The remake for Gone in 60 Seconds is a failed attempt at delivering a wicked car chase film to the screen. This film could have been great, but with a lacking plot, bad acting and bad directing, the film is forgettable.
