The real movie critics that actually get paid to see this that actually saw this instead of skipping it bashed this movie to death.Unfortunately,i strongly agree with them about how bad it really is.You can clearly see how bad it is.The cinematography is extremely ugly.One explosion scene made no sense to me whatsoever because it seemed like it happened for no reason.Selena Gomez's character was so annoying she would put you in an extremely early grave if you were her husband or boyfriend.Ethan Hawk looked like he really didn't want to do this film at all,never mind having fun doing it.Worst of all,the driving was done with the most TAME sense of speed i have ever seen for car chases in an action/adventure film period.Even the car crashes are very LAME unlike Hollywood's best of the best car crashing film sequences that were produced before this turd.This is the kicker though:Joel Silver is one of the executive producers and Moshe Diamant is one of the producers,but it really doesn't seem like they funded this train wreck.I expected nothing less than destructive greatness coming from these 2 titans of some of the best Hollywood action/adventure films i have ever seen,making this crap totally inexcusable.

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!

I grabbed this movie for something to watch and didn't really have any expectations. I was pleasantly surprised that overall it wasn't a bad movie. The concept was interesting, but I felt the writers could have done a better job on the story-line. I felt the characters needed to be more developed as you had the sense you were "missing" something and at times needing to fill in the blanks. It definitely had the feel of the old car chase movies of the 60s-70s which gave it a different edge then some of the newer type movies. I didn't feel like I wasted time watching this one.

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.

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