    Academy Award winners Nicolas Cage (The Rock) and sexy Angelina Jolie (The Bone Collector) ride an unstoppable wave of speed and adrenaline in this hot, edgy action hit from high-octane producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Armageddon).

    Legendary car booster Randall "Memphis" Raines (Cage) thought he`d left the fast lane behind - until he`s forced out of retirement in a do-or-die effort to save his kid brother (Giovanni Ribisi, Saving Private Ryan) from the wrath of an evil mobster! But with speed to burn and attitude to spare, Memphis hastily re-assembles his old crew - a rogues` gallery including Academy Award winner Robert Duvall (A Civil Action) - and floors it in a full-throttle race to pull off the ultimate car heist: 50 exotic beauties in 24 hours - and the cops are already on to them!

    Directed by Dominic Sena and written by Scott Rosenberg, Gone In Sixty Seconds is an action-packed thrill ride that comes out fast and never slows down.

    Total crap! Period. Nothing else can better describe this movie-wannabe. I`m really surprised Nicholas Cage agreed to take part in this bomb.
    The script is very ill-written and the acting is not convincing at all.
    The video transfer is good. All the cars look nice and there are no compression signs at all.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good. The surrounds are used well, but trust me - there is a limit to the number of times the human ear can listen to a car drive by. Take away this feature from the movie and you are left with nothing at all.
    The menus are all beautifully and artistically animated with sounds.
    The extras include an extensive behind the scenes look, divided into several chapters. Nothing too exciting, though.
    Bottom line - just say no. Better yet - YELL no.

    Appaling film, which when it all ends you suddenly realise that there was actually no point whatsoever to the entire storyline of it if it ends like it does.
    Dumbed down nonsense that tries to visually assualt the viewer with rapid editing and a loud modern soundtrack rather than worry about a script and convincing exposition of the one dimensional characters.
    The picture and sound are good as can be expected, but it`s actually rather depressing to see a fine actor like Christopher Eccleston in this paint-by-numbers car theft mess.
