10 Reasons Why ‘Need For Speed’ Is The Worst Car Movie Of All Time

Don't you dare compare this to Fast 'N Furious.

1. Over-acting. Aaron Paul’s character seems to be on the verge of crying or having a panic attack the entire movie with that sort of curious/confused/deranged look on his face that seemed to work in Breaking Bad, but not in Need For Speed. The rest of the cast follows suit.

2. Token chick with British accent. Why does Hollywood think this tactic tricks us into believing the cast has some depth or intelligence?

3. Michael Keaton. The actor and his character in the movie – both are terrible.

4. Driving erratic for no reason. Anyone who has owned or driven a fast car knows you simply don’t hammer the throttle at every possible moment, drive on the wrong side of the road or purposely try to get in police chases. Be reckless, but with a purpose.

5. Air Support? So you want us to believe your little gang of shade tree mechanics has access to planes and helicopters to aid you in your street racing?

6. Cars no one cares about. Although we all appreciate a fine automobile, most genuine car guys could care less  about a trio of Koenigseggs. The way the doors open is pretty dope, though.

7. The crew. Do these guys look like they could build you a high performance vehicle? The naive kid with the strategically soiled shirt but perfectly Bieber-esque hair will never convince me he turns wrenches.

8.  Improper use of car terminology. As soon as the British chick mentioned the ‘racing headers‘ and got credit for being on her game, I was done. There’s countless examples of this througouht the film.

9.  It’s actually a Ford commercial. No hate towards Ford intended whatsoever, but we could have done without the two-hour-and-ten-minute advertisement. Hey, at least we got to see a 2015 Mustang at the end!

10. Unbelievable automotive feats.  To the point where it’s insulting to a remotely knowledgeable car guy. So you’re trying to convince us that any car, let alone THIS Mustang is doing over 230 MPH on track like Road Atlanta (where it was shot)? Does it have a secret jet pack? Stop it.

    omg thank god for online sites im soo glad i didnt pay to see this

  • Tyquon Dupree

    that movie wasn’t even bad it was a good movie see the reason people say its bad cause yall never played the need for speed games smh

    • cliff the great

      The people who played the need for speed game werent the ones in the garage building their own cars. Therefore the movie is a “bad car movie” not a bad movie. …

  • ColeWorldNoBlanket

    His character in that movie may have not been great, but 2 call Michael Keaton a terrible actor is blasphemous.

  • Senjougahara

    Wow this is one of the most bias reviews ever. Saying that this movie is the worst car movie of all time is completely implying that the Fast and Furious franchise is realistic and a legit car movie. I’m sorry but have you seen Fast 6? A tank chasing vintage Mustangs and Ford Escorts and being able to run over the mustang driving at top speed?

  • Howell Diaz

    not bad for the first car game movie i remember.
    for god sake why did you watch the movie if you don’t want to watch it.

    Wait2 let me put an end for this biased movie reviews:

    1. Over-acting. Aaron Paul’s character seems to be on the verge of crying or having a panic attack
    the entire movie with that sort of curious/confused/deranged look on his
    face that seemed to work in Breaking Bad, but not in Need For Speed. The rest of the cast follows suit. – Answer for that is to let the audience know that Aaron is pretty much pissed, and regret for being accomplice with the main antagonist, yeah I know that Aaron’s character might be too ”overreacting” but trust me, how would you feel if your friend was killed and the murderer was infront of your eyes, but you can’t prove that he is.

    2. Token chick with British accent. Why does Hollywood think this tactic tricks us into believing the cast has some depth or intelligence? – that’s awkward, why? feel awkward that the character knows a little of performance in that car.

    3. Michael Keaton. The actor and his character in the movie – both are terrible. -Daww that’s cute bro, How bout going to Hollywood, send in an application to the the big man there claiming you can make a better movie, I dare you.

    4. Driving erratic for no reason.
    Anyone who has owned or driven a fast car knows you simply don’t hammer
    the throttle at every possible moment, drive on the wrong side of the
    road or purposely try to get in police chases. Be reckless, but with a
    purpose. – it was a race that’s the purpose, almost all NFS franchise involves with traffics, driving recklessly, and trust me, if you do play nfs franchise, you’ll see why the characters drives dangerously. (PS: on the hind side, I see no one complained bout Conner in FnF2 where the scene that everyone drove like a maniac and cause a lot of traffic disturbance (early duration of the movie where Paul and his pal race to earn themself the main antogonist trust and give them the hob)

    5. Air Support? So you want us to believe your
    little gang of shade tree mechanics has access to planes and helicopters
    to aid you in your street racing? – who knows, maybe he went to school for pilot before he decided to drop off and be a mechanic.

    6. Cars no one cares about. Although
    we all appreciate a fine automobile, most genuine car guys could care
    less about a trio of Koenigseggs. The way the doors open is pretty
    dope, though. – *cough* dude really, almost all hypercars door openings aren’t some normal as street level cars,

    7. The crew. Do these guys look
    like they could build you a high performance vehicle? The naive kid with
    the strategically soiled shirt but perfectly Bieber-esque hair will
    never convince me he turns wrenches. – Did anyone told you not to judge the book by it’s cover? pfft so if not anyone told me that, I can just say that you’re the worst reviewer.

    8. Improper use of car terminology. As soon as the British chick mentioned the ‘racing headers‘ and got credit for being on her game, I was done. There’s countless examples of this througouht the film.

    9. It’s actually a Ford commercial. No hate towards
    Ford intended whatsoever, but we could have done without the
    two-hour-and-ten-minute advertisement. Hey, at least we got to see a
    2015 Mustang at the end! – dude, stop complaining, they tried to focuses on two kinds of car Hypercars and Muscles in the movie. Belt up even if it is a commercial for Fords, what’s with it? do you get uncomfy feeling bout it?

    10. Unbelievable automotive feats. To
    the point where it’s insulting to a remotely knowledgeable car guy. So
    you’re trying to convince us that any car, let alone THIS Mustang is
    doing over 230 MPH on track like Road Atlanta (where it was shot)? Does
    it have a secret jet pack? Stop it. – Dude in behind the scenes they already had told this, ”the car wasn’t” it was exaggerated, stop being too realistic. Each action movie involves car there’s always some truth being ‘extended’ than it should had been

    It’s a god damn movie, the point is to be entertained. I’m sorry if the realistic attributes of this movie weren’t up to documentary level.
