Bad guy from need for speed
The Need for Speed movie is both great and terrible. I saw a screening of the film in Boston last month and what the minute action flick boils down is this: it is full of hits and misses. Let me explain why. It's the cliched and overdone narrative of a man framed for a crime he did not commit who sets out on a cross-country adventure seeking vengeance.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Need for Speed - Cast & Director Interviews

Share Tweet Email Whatsapp. We were hoping for some entertaining silliness when we went to see the new Need For Speed movie last night, and that's exactly what we got. The street races and car chases were fantastically filmed, but there were so many plotholes and inconsistencies that we've been compelled to list the most heinous ones here. It's a must-see for any petrolhead, just remember to leave your brain at the door Woeful script There's so much wrong with the NFS script, it's difficult to know where to start.
There's hammy dialogue, a hopelessly derivative 'revenge' plot, a predictable romance, and stock characters with painfully over-the-top idiosyncrasies. We're even treated to a classic slow-motion ' noooo! With that in mind, you wouldn't expect it to have much of a budget, but we have car trackers, on-board cameras, roads closed off, and a spotter Kid Cudi in a plane overhead.
Who's paying for all this? The garage's poor business model The garage run by our hero, Tobey Marshall Aaron Paul , is referred to by baddie Dino Brewster Dominic Cooper as the best he'd seen for miles. This is later evidenced by the fact that they're able to carry on the work of the late, great, Caroll Shelby. If these guys are so good, why are they struggling to even pay off debts?
And why aren't they employed by a high-end manufacturer? Maybe they should start working in the mornings, rather than drinking beer and playing Xbox, as seen in one scene. Drive-by refuelling Our hero and Julia Maddon Imogen Poots , his companion, need to get a jolly good move on to reach San Francisco for the start of a big street race. To save time, their mates in a Ford F decide to refuel them while moving at motorway speeds. This all looks a tad dangerous, so why bother? Why not just do a brisk fuel stop, then drive a little quicker for the next few miles to compensate?
He seems quite happy to stop for fuel the conventional way later on, rendering this whole stupid scene pointless. Dominic Cooper's excessively tall hair Look at it. Just look at it! Ford Mustang has invincible suspension Having cars leap high in the air and land without catastrophic suspension failure is a common staple for action films.
Sure enough, NFS has one such scene. The stupid helicopter scene Numerous things are wrong with this part of the film. For starters, the 'hilarious sidekick' picks up the Mustang with a helicopter and dangles it about, which somehow doesn't damage the car, nor the chopper.
After a short flight the Mustang is dropped off with the support crew, who are incomprehensibly ahead of our hero, despite having been left behind hours before - and without the aid of an aerial shortcut.
Seems like a good idea, but the drivers have a habit of absolutely wrecking their cars, leaving the prize fund a little light by the end. Also, it finishes on a dead-end road, so anyone left by then will presumably have their car impounded by the police, unable to hand the keys to the winner. Who'd also be arrested. He did so on the promise of receiving half the value of the cars won. As they're all wrecked, he won't get a penny.
We assume he's a bit miffed by this, but we never hear from the guy again. Dino is a complete idiot We're told the only thing linking Dino to the death of Tobey's friend is the red Koenigsegg Agera R he used to punt the young chap off the road. The logical thing would be to destroy it, but instead, he keeps it in a small lock up with really shoddy security. Not only that, but he also keeps records of it on the company computer - with pictures of the crash damage.
This means all his fiancee has to do is click two different folders, and she's found evidence of Dino's transgression.
Clever boy. Heavy handed police tactics In the climactic race, we see one officer use his truncheon to jam the accelerator on his patrol car and, with expert timing, launch the car into the side of a Bugatti Veyron. Firstly, how the hell did he manage to time it perfectly with the Bugatti travelling so fast? And secondly, what police officer in their right mind would deliberately destroy an expensive patrol car, potentially ending some rich dude in a Bugatti in the process?
Sure, he's speeding a fair bit, but trying to kill him seems a touch excessive. Hilariously obvious product placement When our hero is picked up from prison at the end of the film, a Mustang approaches from the distance. We were expecting to see the wrecked Shelby all fixed up, but instead, we see a shiny Mustang. We don't mind a bit of product placement, but does it have to be this obvious? The Saleen driver is called Gooch Yes, he really is. Sort by Best Sort by Latest. Show Comments.

Personally I was always a Carroll Shelby fan, and when Carroll passed away it hit me hard; he was such an innovator.
Need For Speed
Listen to Parent Trapped , our new weekly podcast with stories and tips for getting through the pandemic. Skip to Content. The main thrust of the story is revenge, and the main characters destroy countless amounts of property with no consequences. Aside from wreaking untold destruction and going out for revenge, the main character is a good team player, and has a sense of right and wrong. In two cases, he stops during a race to check on fellow racers after crashes, even though he risks his lead. The bad guy does not show this same tendency. Some female characters are treated as sex objects in skimpy outfits. The movie includes many car chases and crashes, and filmed without the aid of CG effects, the impact of these stunt sequences is quite strong. Characters die in car crashes. We see some guns and shooting, and some punching, but only a little blood is shown mostly injuries after crashes.
