Movie Info

Maindrian Pace (H.B. Halicki) is an insurance investigator by day and a professional car thief by night. When a South American drug lord offers Pace $400,000 to steal 48 cars in five days, the assignment seems like an easy week's work for Pace and his gang -- until he's sold out. After he steals a car known as "Eleanor" in Long Beach, Calif., the police are suddenly on his tail. Pace ends up in a desperate car chase across Southern California, from Long Beach to Carson.

Audience Reviews for Gone in 60 Seconds

  • Sep 06, 2011
    The classic Gone in 60 Seconds is a decent car chase film, but its nothing that great to be honest. The film is memorable of course for the car chase scene that spans half the film, and features the destruction of 93 cars. The film though entertaining, lacks anything really intriguing about the plot. The acting is average, and it's nothing great. The films plot is very thin, and not elaborate. I felt that this film was entertaining, but it was also sloppy in its style. I can applaud the effort of the crew for attempting this low budget film, and it pays off slightly. Bur like I said, the film lacks effective material to really make it a stellar film. I mean, they could've added more depth to the overall plot. That's my biggest beef with the film, its lack of effective plot development. I guess with that aside, there's a cool little film to enjoy. But it's flawed, and overall there are better car chase films than this film. After seeing the famous chase, I wasn't really in awe. I still think the most legendary car chase is the one in Bullitt. For what it is, Gone in 60 Seconds is an impressive low budget car chase film, and there are lots of cool cars. However the film lacks in effective plot development and acting. The film can be summarized as such, the thieves get together and get their list of cars they need to steal and after they start to steal the cars, then there's the famous chase, and the end credits. Not too much substance. But decent, mindless fun, if this is your type of film.

    H.B. Halicki, the car crash king, writes, directs, and stars his way into stardom, with a car chase film, known as <i>Gone in 60 Seconds</i>.<p>The plot has a lot of potential, in which it deals with the stealing of 48 cars in only a few days. The problem here is that there isn't enough explanation for the plot or buildup for the characters. It almost seems like something to just past the time until the finale. Still, it is quite interesting. The pacing is moderate and Halicki utilizes a lot of narration dialogue, where the characters are talking while the screen is showing something else.</p><p>The most memorable and popular segments of this movie are the car chases. There are a couple small ones in the first half of the film, including one that involves a tow truck. It is the big one at the end that deserves an applause. Remember how I mentioned that the story feels like something to pass the time? Well, this film is about an hour and 40 minutes. At just before the 1 hour mark, the story goes away and it is 1 long car chase until the end credits appear. We're talking about a 30-40 minute car chase. Supposedly, there were 93 cars destroyed in this picture, which comes out to nearly 1 car a minute. There are no special effects either, as it is all real stunt work.</p><p>The acting is OK at best, with George Cole giving the best performance.</p><p><i>Gone in 60 Seconds</i> is a film for fans of car chases. Nothing more and nothing less. On a quick note, the opening segment is mimicked in another film ... <i>Kill Bill</i>.
