Non-stop car chases in the city Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. The plot has a lot of loose ends and made little sense why the pair of main characters were chosen by the villain to engage in the crime caper. Believe it needs a better writer to tidy them up. However, if you like cars smashing with each other, against structures, airborne or exploded, this is a real thrill ride.

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.

If you like high octane action movies like Speed, or Die Hard, Check this one out. Ethan Hawke is retired race car driver whose wife is kidnapped, and he has to drive an armor plated Ford Mustang around Moscow doing little criminal deeds for her captors. Selena Gomez is the owner of that car, and they have to figure out not only how she figures in the captor’s plans, but what the captor’s ultimate plan is.

The only people who don't like this movie would rather watch The Notebook or Bridget Jones Diary!!!

I sat through about fifteen minutes of ridiculous chase scene and was too bored to keep watching the show. The filming was poor and the plot appeared to be non-existent. Adrenalin junkies may like this but only if they are satisfied with no detectable story.

Most of the other reviews are negative, but it's not a bad movie. There's no deeper meaning or anything, but car movies are always fun and I was surprised the Ethan Hawke worked in this role. Entertaining.

This movie was one big long car chase. However there was no smart dialogue, no cool shots, no amazing driving, obvious that the actor wasn't even in the car driving. Quite stupid. (For ex: the guy tells them they are in anarmored car and yet when people fire bullets at them they duck) The best character in the movie was the car itself.
