“..if you like watching people drive really nice cars really fast, "Need for Speed" scratches that particular itch. But expect nothing more, because everything else about it is just running on empty..”

“..Aaron Paul is a talented actor, but it's hard to believe watching this car-racing actioner inspired by the 'Need for Speed' video games. He looks visibly uncomfortable playing street car racer Tobey Marshall..”
