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
