Need For Speed
23 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A fun but stupid B-movie. When I first saw the previews for this I thought it would be filled with corny dialogue, thinly-sketched characters, and an asinine plot and look I was right but what I didn't expect is to actually enjoy myself. Need for Speed is probably the best video game adaptation which doesn't say much but what distinguishes it as better is simply the actors. While Aaron Paul does a fine job playing it straight it's Michael Keaton who steals the show as an over the top cartoon mastermind. Kid Cudi doesn't give a bad performance for a rapper turned actor and actually is decently funny. Sure the movie is messy, dumb, and full of cliches but if you turn off your brain you'll get a kick out of need for speed.
