‘Need for Speed’ review: not so fast, not so furious

Maybe it’s that it looks like a video game is booting up, or maybe we just all know movies adapted from video games are at a high risk of being absolutely terrible. This one is Need for Speed, a movie based on EA’s long-running game franchise with just the thinnest of plot parameters to work with: there are fast cars, and there are cops. Presumably, everything else was fair game for screenwriter George Gatins, who shares a credit for the movie adaptation with his more broadly accomplished brother John (Real Steel, Flight). Alas, they still arrived on an elementary, age-old formula involving a down-on-his-luck kid with a talent for racing and a heart of gold, Tobey, played by Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul.
