This is one cool movie, for all those fast car lovers out there well this is one of the best movie to watch. The storyline is a bit shallow and the timeline of the movie is short (this all happened in a matter of days) but the cars, THE CARS, are just so cool!! The chase scenes in this movie are one of the best I’ve seen in the movies. Also a trivia is that most of the cars in this movie is really owned by Nicholas Cage.
I recommend this movie to those who like fast paced movies, hahaha the title says it all!
