Review: Aaron Paul has put his drug-making/dealing days behind him, and has traded his gas mask for awesome racing cars in Need For Speed. He plays “Tobey Marshall”, a lead mechanic who loves racing and does it to earn a living and maintain his deceased father’s car shop along with his crew. When a horrible accident occurs that resulted in jail time for Tobey, he seeks for vengeance and justice behind the wheel. Though the storyline is realistic compared to most other action car flicks, the stunts were not as jaw-dropping as one would hope to see. Need For Speed has a lot of heart, but not enough speed to entertain.
I give Need For Speed one thumbs down.
