The movie is an adaptation of the game, Need for Speed by Electronic Arts (EA).

The film stars Aaron Paul (two-time Emmy winner for “Breaking Bad”), Dominic Cooper (“Captain America: The First Avenger”), Imogen Poots (“Fright Night”), Ramon Rodriguez (“Transformers”), Rami Malek (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”), Scott Mescudi, Dakota Johnson (“21 Jump Street”), Harrison Gilbertson and Michael Keaton (“Batman”).

The movie is about Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul), who runs his family’s auto shop and races the underground street circuit with his buddies on weekends. Life is good, but his whole world is turned upside down when he is sent to prison for a crime he didn’t commit. In prison, he spends the next two years thinking about one thing: vengeance. While questioning the morals to which he has always adhered, he is nevertheless determined to bring down his enemies.

The movie is pretty lengthy, about 2 hours long. Unlike the Fast & Furious movie franchise, which have lots of girls and exaggerating car stunts, I find Need for Speed Movie more realistic and down to earth though they are a few obvious loopholes in the storyline.

Need for speed is not complete without police cars! Rest assured you will see them in the movie together with a few expensive cars like the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, Koenigsegg Agera, Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, McLaren P1, Saleen S7, and even a rare GTA Spano (source: Motor Authority).
