Released 2000 Rating 15 in UK
Director Dominic Sena Writer/s H.B.Halicki, Scott Rosenberg
Starring Nicolas Cage, Angelina Jolie, Giovani Ribisi, Robert Duvall, Timothy Olyphant, Christopher Ecclestone, Vinnie Jones
Source of story A remake of a 1974 film (I had never heard of it)
Elevator Pitch A seasoned car thief is drawn out of retirement to save his younger brother from the vengance of a gang boss. He has to steal 50 classic cars in three days, with another gang and the police on his tail.
Content Much moderate violence, some minor and major car chases, a glimpse of sex.
A View A simple plot, poorly executed. I tried to work out what was wrong with this. Maybe no chemistry between the main players and honestly I don’t think the director was really into cars. At one point I glimpsed the roll bar of an AC Cobra but that was a close as we got to one of the ultimate classics.
