Darius (Need For Speed)
Need For Speed , loosely based on the racing game of the same name, roars from zero to sixty in… about thirty minutes. Aaron Paul is a small town mechanic whose shop is in trouble. When home town asshole turned race car superstar asshole Dominic Cooper comes home to recruit Aaron Paul to build him a supercar the nervous-looking, constantly on the verge of tears man must put aside old resentments to make some money.
There are two good race scenes in there, but all of this stuff between the races is tedious in the extreme. The movie gets into gear car reference! What makes the first half hour of Need For Speed so irksome is that nobody gives a shit about this stuff.
We want to see driving, not Aaron Paul weeping in police lock-up. Paul cries more than once and his voice hitches and he has a baby-faced softness to him. The cliche, as I said, is that the cars are the stars, but the reality is that Imogene Poots is the star. Star power explodes from her in every scene, and I would have happily watched a version of this film where she was the driver.
Dominic Cooper makes an excellent villain; he leans right into mustache-twirling territory, which is perfect for the broadness of this film. Also delightfully broad is Michael Keaton, who appears to have shot his scenes in an afternoon; he plays a reclusive rich guy who has the personality of a morning DJ and who does all of his scenes in front of a webcam.
The cross country bits are a blast, and the final race is extraordinary. The real hero of the film may be Shane Hurlbut, whose photography captures the cross-country feel of the film; Need For Speed has the scope of a 70s road picture, and Hurlbut makes the scenery competitive with the cars - all of which are gorgeous and shot like fashion models.
Dominic Cooper is the bad guy, but Need For Speed has a very 70s distaste for cops and highway patrol, and our heroes humiliate and possibly murder them whenever possible. The whole film, while looking very modern and digital in terms of photography - the action is gloriously practical and you can tell , has a distinct throwback vibe. Waugh comes from a family of stunt men, and Need For Speed occasionally gives you a whiff of what it must be like to sit around with those guys while they tell bawdy jokes and downplay the dangers of the job for the sake of bravado.
But when it comes to the action, Need For Speed is a must-see for acolytes of the dying art of practical stunts. Yes, the first half hour is godawful, but the next ninety minutes more than make up for it. Josh Boone's perpetually delayed film now scheduled for release this August. Cool If True. We guess this shouldn't come as a surprise.
12 Reasons Why Need For Speed Is Hilariously Awful
From insane heist missions to devastating car battles to jaw dropping set piece moments, Need for Speed Payback delivers an edge-of-your-seat, action-driving fantasy. But along the way you're going to be introduced to a number of characters, some of which you'll be playing as, while others will be either helping you out or trying to put a stop to your actions. Let's meet some of the inhabitants of Fortune Valley. Styles: Race, Drag Birthplace: The Barrio, Silver Rock Drive: Be the best A natural-born racer, Ty possesses killer racing instincts and an unwavering will to win that make him a formidable opponent whether in a street race or on the drag strip. When Ty and his crew are betrayed, he will turn this relentless focus towards one single goal: payback.
Darius is a fictional character and the main antagonist in Need for Speed: Carbon. He is the leader of the Stacked Deck Crew and is initially seeming to be friendly towards the protagonist, until it was revealed that it was he who set him and Nikki up in the past and towards then. During the final confrontation, he recruits three assistants who are revealed to be bosses of crews the player previously defeated and victims who Darius had set up in the past, them being Angie , Kenji and Wolf. Before Carbon took place prior to the events of Need for Speed: Most Wanted , he gave the player his heavily customised Toyota Supra to use in the race with the 3 main bosses of the city. Nearing the end of the race, all of the cars with the exception of the Supra get hit by EMP guns used by a waiting S.

Ghost Games has finally announced the upcoming 22nd full-fledged installment of the long-running Need for Speed franchise, just in time to mark a quarter of a century for the series. If you're wanting to know details of the game, or what's been revealed so far, check out fellow Drivetriber Keegan Gossett's posts breaking down everything from the trailer and the preorder incentives. What I thought I would do is give my take on what's got me excited, what I'm hoping for, and what's got me worried after seeing the reveal for NFS Heat. As ever with the Need for Speed franchise, the location and vibe of the game are top notch.
Need for Speed
Or a one-off, two-million dollar Mustang being air-lifted by a military helicopter. I was so excited. SW: Some of the best car movies are still from the 60s and 70s, from my perspective. Personally I was always a Carroll Shelby fan, and when Carroll passed away it hit me hard; he was such an innovator.

Struggling to make ends meet, he and his crew participate in street races after hours.
NEED FOR SPEED Movie Review: Dumb Plot, Awesome Action
The Need for Speed movie is both great and terrible. I saw a screening of the film in Boston last month and what the minute action flick boils down is this: it is full of hits and misses. Let me explain why. It's the cliched and overdone narrative of a man framed for a crime he did not commit who sets out on a cross-country adventure seeking vengeance. It does not get more formulaic than this. All the characters are completely one-dimensional and you'll cringe during a lot of the dialogue. The movie has no CGI. None at all.
