What's missing from Gone in 60 Seconds is anything new. There's a "been there, done that" feeling to the enterprise.

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.

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.

A product that will delight car junkies and drive cinephiles to swear off film until fall.
January 1, 2000
An especially bad screenplay.
January 1, 2000
A time-waster with some enjoyably empty zip.
January 1, 2000
So mired in his own ludicrous equation for contemporary action pictures that it's constantly stuck in first gear.
January 1, 2000
Never before has a promising cast been wasted so shamelessly.
January 1, 2000
Has the energy of a dead battery.
January 1, 2000
No one is likely to confuse Gone in 60 Seconds with a good action movie.
January 1, 2000
The script by Scott Rosenberg (Con Air) starts out stringing together underworld cliches and, about midpoint when it becomes obvious nothing is working, turns on itself in a desperate attempt at self-parody.
January 1, 2000
Weighted down with a new chassis of cliches.

The dialogue is so cheesy it needs crackers.
January 1, 2000
It's a movie that could honestly be said to star cars, not actors.
January 1, 2000
Gone in 60 Seconds, a car theft caper starring Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie's lips, is slickly produced pornography for the sports car lover, and little more.
January 1, 2000
A warm-weather guilty pleasure.
January 1, 2000
Chases are big, but -- with one exception, which stands out for its determination to bring in da noise -- joyless.
