Need for Speed ​​

Name, the font, logo and Electronic Arts 20-minute final race, and that’s all that unites film Need for Speed ​​racing series with infinite EA.

Well, no, really. Street racing is in many films, the more expensive machines. In the picture, Scott could well be called Test Drive, Burnout or Ridge Racer. Nothing would have changed.


Generally, to compete with the “Fast and Furious” in terms of demonstrations, street racing is stupid. Perhaps the last two parts are not quite that, but still, we have six (okay, six minus two) great racing movie with perfectly sound chases, elegant installation, excellent team played, beautiful cars and girls. What can Need for Speed ​​counter this?

Scott Waugh made a bet on the actor. Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul and maybe a good performer, but here he just nothing to play, let alone to photogenic charisma and he gives a head late Paul Walker, the rider to the bone. Aaron Paul is not convincing – neither in anger, nor the wheel. Generally cast Need for Speed ​​raises many questions. Michael Keaton as the host of large illegal racing undeniably good, it is literally a cut above the rest, but not much point in his presence in the film. Monarch on site at all might be a disembodied voice in the radio. In Need for Speed ​​nice to look at except on Imogen Poots, but she’s playing too weak, although smiling pretty cool.


Corporate skate Need for Speed ​​- cars. Here the authors have tried. In the film are as much as three Koenigsegg Agera R, Ford Mustang, Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, GTA Spano, Saleen S7, McLaren P1, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and, of course, Bugatti Veyron. However, if you want to look for expensive cars, it’s easier to include a couple of series Top Gear, this will surely be fun.



Which are lacking in the movie Need for Speed, so it is the very sense of speed, became branded card game series EA. Run at least Need for Speed ​​Rivals – despite all the shortcomings of the game, you are guaranteed to receive their portion of emotions and adrenaline, which movie you will not be able to guarantee. Almost all the races in the picture is too slow. Is that the fault of operator error, erection problems or stunt, is unclear. On races and the sensation of speed “Fast and Furious 5/6” can give Need for Speed ​​head start in a couple of laps.



As we noted at the outset, the relationship with the game picture is very conditional. Yes, there is explicit reference to the Need for Speed: The Run, with its race across America, though in the opposite direction. There are elements of Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Need for Speed ​​Rivals with police helicopters and blocking the road. The final route to the lighthouse at all as if plucked from the classic debugger Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed. But during the races is clearly not enough branded game cameras – shooting from the first and third person, with the bumper, the hood. But the authors were able to perfectly convey the most shameful element series Need for Speed ​​(up to the last games) – hideous accident. Crashing while racing cars do not behave like a real machine of steel and rubber, as well as a solid piece of wood smeared with soap and water. Yes, and fire was terribly unnatural.

As a result, Need for Speed ​​is worth watching just for the twenty minute final lap and smiles Imogen Poots. If you are looking for a really good movie about racing note last year’s Rush , who, despite the absence of the Oscars, is undoubtedly the best film of 2013 In the most extreme cases of revision “Fast and Furious.” Come anyone, even the ill-fated “Tokyo Drift.”
