(2014) (Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action: A young man leads a high speed chase across the country to enter an illegal but high-stakes race he hopes will help avenge the death of his friend at the hands of his top competitor.
- Tobey Marshall (AARON PAUL) is a blue collar mechanic who lives in the small town of Mount Kisco, New York and has inherited his father's auto garage. When he and his friends -- Benny (SCOTT MESCUDI), Finn (RAMI MALEK), Joe (RAMON RODRIGUEZ) and Pete (HARRISON GILBERTSON) -- aren't scraping by working on cars, they're entering illegal races with Tobey behind the wheel and Benny serving as his eyes in the sky, watching out for traffic and cops.
The most famous racer from Mount Kisco, however, is Tobey's rival, Dino Brewster (DOMINIC COOPER), who not only stole away his girlfriend and Pete's sister, Anita (DAKOTA JOHNSON), but was also a successful Indy racer and now runs his own business. Realizing Tobey's gift with cars, he offers him the chance to rebuild a legendary Ford Mustang in exchange for a cut of the future sale of it. Underwater financially, Tobey reluctantly agrees, with British car buyer Julia Maddon (IMOGEN POOTS) eventually getting a look at the finished product for her buyer. But Tobey and Dino's rivalry isn't finished, and an impromptu race with them and another man results in Dino causing that man's death but allows the blame to be pinned on Tobey.
Two years later, Tobey is released from prison intent on avenging his friend's death. Knowing that Dino will be racing in a secret and illegal but high-stakes race put together by a racing mastermind known as the Monarch (MICHAEL KEATON), Tobey -- with Julia as his unlikely and initially unwelcome passenger -- sets out on a high speed sprint across the country. From that point on, and eluding the law along the way, he knows he must make a scene to grab Monarch's attention and be invited to the big race.
