|Need for Speed - awful, idiotic nonsense|
Need for Speed saw Paul starring in his own right.
The pity is that this is a terrible movie. Morally, it's downright awful. The idea that a group of people who may be superb drivers can drive high powered cars, not only at incredibly dangerous speeds on public highways in illegal races, but endanger other road users by driving the wrong way down roads, cross pavements, etc., is so morally reprehensible that I can't imagine how anyone should think producing a film that makes heroes out of people like this is right, especially when the only audience this film is likely to appeal to are impressionable wannabe boy racers. Worse still are the sheer stupidities in it, such as the idea that a car can hurtle through the air at high speed, land and still be in a fit condition to drive or that a car can be refueled while racing at high speed on a public highway. It's not only morally reprehensible but downright stupid, with a plot that is an insult in its cliche-ridden naivety to every intelligent (or semi-intelligent) viewer.
Please, Aaron Paul, think twice before taking on something as bad as this again - or whatever kudos you amassed in making Breaking Bad will be thrown away.
