Storyline

Framed by an ex-partner for a murder he did not commit, Tobey Marshall, a financially struggling custom-car builder and street-racer, spends two years in jail thinking about one moment. Fresh out of prison he reacquires the fastest car his workshop ever built and sold, and seeks to enter a secretive and extremely high-stakes race known as The DeLeon. His purpose; redemption, recognition from the world of racing and to solve his problems. Yet all this fades in comparison to his driving reason. Revenge. Above all, revenge. This is a story about love, redemption, revenge and motor oil all swirled together Written by Chase Game Reviews

Monarch: Hey, I've been doing some homework on this kid Tobey Marshall from Mount Kisco. This kid was a phenom. Used to tear up the local circuits. Him and his dad, man, they campaigned like champions. Of course, Mount Kisco had another great, Dino Brewster. You all know Dino. He went on to race in the big leagues at Indy, and Toby just kind of fell through the cracks. Well, here's some news, cretins. Tobey's been running again, and running fast.

Enjoyable
17 July 2014 | by tejasvi_hegdeSee all my reviews

I was expecting this to be hardcore car racing action movie.

But this movie, Need for Speed, gave me pleasant surprise.

It has action but story is good too. Does not bore the viewer.

Director exactly know what needs to be fed to viewer in what quantity.

Acting is well delivered. Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots are matching pair, especially the eyes. Dominic Cooper delivers well too.

I had an impression that this movie will be in line of Fast and Furious. But it is not.

Both are good but different.

Overall, enjoyable movie.
