This is a story with a pathetic plotline. The acting is terrible. The entire movie is practically one big car chase. Don't waste your time, unless you prefer your shows like this. I would prefer our library system spent money on higher quality DVD's.

In this movie the cars were the stars. Ethan Hawke was passable and the screenwriter must be a mysogynist because he made the Selena Gomez character so unlikable. Watch this movie if you like cars and crashes.

I thought that this was a very good movie, despite what other people are saying. I agree that at some points it got a little boring, but overall this movie definitely deserves the 4 out of 5 stars I gave it!

Worst.Movie. Ever.Unwatchable mostly cuz of Selenium Gomez. I worked as an Extra on Regression starring Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson which just wrapped. It shows alot more promise than this piece of shiite.
Be sure to look for Regression in about a year.
neonkc and Tigger67 are obviously developmentally handicapped. Can't use the "R" word. Too PC but that's what they are.

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way. Just another shootem up bangem up move. Very predictable.

Im a fan of car chase movies, so for the most part I got tremendous enjoyment out of seeing this movie. Slightly lacking in storyline content, as the film takes place in the car with the two leads, played by Selena Gomez of WIzards of Waverly Place fame and Ethan Hawke, however the action keeps you moving and your attention is riveted to the screen. It's reminiscent of another movie simular to this, but different scenario (1994's The Chase). In it's defense, I found plenty to like about this, so see it and make up your own mind.

Throughly enjoyable. Awesome car chase movie. Great action and plot twists. Best all-out car-chase movie since last year's Death Race 3. I wish people who don't like this kind of movie would stop checking them out and stop reserving them. You are slowing it down for the rest of us who want to see this junk.

Lots and lots and lots of screeching car chases. The girl was cool, and Hawke is intense,.. but I never thought I could get so bored with what seemed like one very very long car chase, with some slight plot interruptions!

Below average crime/car stunt action flick. The whole movie more or less takes place in a car. A lot of the footage is from portable cameras attached to the car. Gomez is cute, but cannot act. Hawke can act, but the script and plot were so poor it didn't matter. So much car chasing and wrecking (which were done pretty well) that you become immune quickly and it is just meh.

Other: Swearing, rude gestures and lots of intense action scenes are in this movie. Definitely for a more older crowd of viewers.
