Gone in 60 Seconds

 

 

Here's a film that totally wastes talented actors. The cars outshine everything else, pedal to the metal throughout the movie. It delivers what it advertises: cars, cars, and more cars.

This movie has the audience siding for the bad guys to outfox the cops. Nothing new to cheer about, but if you're 13 to 16 years old and a boy, it's right on.

For me it crashed and burned.

If there's any justice, this film will be gone in 60 seconds.

A great cast is wasted in what could be called the dullest action film ever made. Yes, there are plenty of car crashes and multiple explosions, but the dialog is paper thin, and the direction is lifeless.

It's movies like this that make MI:2 look like a classic.

Gone in 60 Seconds is a noisy combination of getaways, gang run-ins, and dumb comic relief involving snakes and doggie droppings.

The story is unbelievable and silly at times. There's no basic suspense or star charisma in this over-produced macho car fantasy.

This is a very disappointing movie, especially when you have three Oscar winners heading up the cast in the three main roles.

The characters are stereotyped and do little more than recite their lines.

I advise you to steer clear of this bland auto-theft picture.
