Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

The car's the star in this boys-and-their-toys action drama that, unfortunately, has too little action to cover for the absence of plot. Nicolas Cage plays a reformed car thief who is forced to pull off an impossible job - steal 50 top-of-the-range cars in four nights - for bad guy Christopher Eccleston, in return for his brother Giovanni Ribisi's life. Cage ropes in his old crew - including ex-flame Angelina Jolie and silent-but-deadly Vinnie Jones - for the job, but it's over an hour before we get any stealing or crashing of any description. There's a nice chase at the end, but the deficiencies in the storyline drive it headfirst into a cul-de-sac of unrealised tension.
