Rated PG-13 · 130 minutes · 2014

The name says it all in this case. When Need for Speed is behind the wheel, it’s something really cool. Other times … it needs some speed. A vehicle (ha!) for Breaking Bad co-star Aaron Paul, Need for Speed is an overly simple car-loving movie, one that does not need to approach its 130 minutes, and one that dares you to question its many physical improbabilities, only to have you throw your hands up in disgust and enjoy the ride (another pun!). The street racing is delirious and the stunts are incredible, and ultimately, that’s what you should worry about. Why director Scott Waugh tried at all to make this serious and dramatic is questionable when he had a perfectly good adrenaline rush on his hands already.

Creative Loafing Charlotte Need for Speed: Braking bad Rating: *1/2 by Matt Brunson 03/16/2014
Connect Savannah Review: Need for Speed It's hard to enjoy the mayhem when it's presented in such nihilistic fashion. For a popcorn picture, this is rough stuff, with our heroes so wrapped up in their escapades that they aren't concerned with how many civilians and police officers they might have killed. by Matt Brunson 03/26/2014

Colorado Springs Independent Need for Speed proves an overreach for talented-on-TV Aaron Paul A movie like Need for Speed depends on energetic showpieces for the vehicles, but it also depends on a certain alpha-male "it" factor in the driver's seat. by Scott Renshaw 03/12/2014
