'Need For Speed' [Blu ray]
(Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Ramon Rodriguez, Michael Keaton, et al / Blu ray / PG-13 / 2014 / BVHE)

Overview: Buckle up with Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul, 'Breaking Bad') as he sets out on a mission of revenge against wealthy and arrogant Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper), who framed him for a crime he didn't commit. Tobey pushes his limits to the max in a high-octane race across America, hitting the road with the world's most exotic supercars - delivering real speed, real danger and real action.

Blu ray Verdict: As I'm sure you all know, and totally unfairly, when this movie was in theaters, many people were comparing it to the Fast & Furious movie series. But, as all now know, it's nothing at all like that saga. Indeed, it has a storyline all of it's own. True Aaron Paul fans will probably like it. Even though a lot of the movie is taking place in a car, driving fast, it's not about racing to win anything. It's about getting justice for the death of a friend.

Dino is responsible for Pete's accident, the stolen cars and lies about having anything to do with it. Since Tobey was the only other person there, he winds up going to jail for 2 years. Once he gets out, his goal isn't to race a car for fun, women and money. His goal is to to prove Dino was responsible. If going cross country is his way to prove it, that's what he does. Imogen Poots' character winds up going on the ride along with him and it's their connection in the car that brings laughter to the movie.

Even though the ads for this movie stressed cars and racing, it's not really about that, which is what most people probably were let down by. But given a chance the way it is, it definitely provides entertainment. Ergo, 'Need For Speed' needs to be seen as its own entity - as its own movie; for it truly is just that good. This is a Widescreen Presentation (2.39:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
