True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Movie Review: Need for Speed

Starring: Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots

Directed by: Scott Waugh

BLURB: Fresh from prison, a street racer who was framed by a wealthy business associate joins a cross country race with revenge in mind. His ex-partner, learning of the plan, places a massive bounty on his head as the race begins...

REVIEW:  Now those that know anything about me know this is NOT my kind of movie. I could care less about cars and even less about racing but I watched this one with the hubby because he wanted to see it. It is one that if you do like those things I’m sure you would enjoy. Now as most of you know this one is based off a very popular video game which is not the best premise but I was really surprised that this movie actually had a pretty decent plot to it. Aaron Paul plays Tobey Marshall a former race car driver who now owns a garage that use to belong to his late father. When he is approached by his rival Dino (who also took his girlfriend from him) to complete a project involving a rare Shelby Mustang in exchange for part of the car’s estimated 2 million dollar price tag.

Tobey agrees. The two of them after the project is done get in an argument along with Tobey’s brother Pete and agree to a race to see who is the better driver while racing Dino’s uncle's three Koenigsegg Ageras (which are illegal to drive in the U.S. because of their high speed capacity.) 

However Dino agreed to the race to take revenge upon Tobey and during the race he purposely bumps Pete and causes him to crash and Pete is killed. Then he frames Tobey by telling the police that the cars had been stolen and that there were only the two cars stolen and driven not three. Tobey is arrested and sent to prison. Fast forward two years later when Tobey is released from prison…he sets out to make Dino pay for the death of his brother and for framing him.  

Tobey enters into the legendary and grueling “De Leon” race in which the winner takes the cars of all the other racers involved in the race… and yes you guessed it Dino is a participant and wants desperately to win. Tobey of course just as equally wants Dino to lose. Who will win in this race not only for the winner take all of a plethora of dream racing cars but in the race for vengeance? Can Tobey expose Dino for the low life he is and make him pay for all he has cost him? And has Tobey found true love with Julia another car and racing enthusiast along the way? Is there a happily ever after in store or more time behind bars for Tobey?

I won’t say more than that because I don’t want to give anything away. It is one full of action and drama and as I said if you like cars and racing this one would probably be a good fit for you. I found myself interested in it by the end even hating both lol. So it isn’t a bad little movie especially one that was based off a video game. Guys I think will definitely enjoy this one way more than women but if you enjoy movies like Gone in 60 seconds or The Fast and Furious series I think this one would be right up your alley.   

Nothing to bad on the sexuality meter at all just kissing mostly and a brief nude scene

Rated PG-13 for sequences of reckless street racing, disturbing crash scenes,
nudity and language
