If Hasbro didn't buy the Go-Bots I'm pretty sure someone in Hollywood would have purchased the rights to go up against Transformers.

You know, perhaps the best thing going for this movie is the fact that they've used physical stunts, no CGI. But I don't know if the F&F movies do that too? In the trailers that I've seen, they seem to be trying to capture the over-the-top insanity from the games. In recent NFS games, the cops are relentless, to the point of throwing themselves at you. I'd be disappointed if that didn't happen here

^Yeah, I dug out Most Wanted (2012) again this week and I forgot how insanely suicidal some of them were, three times as many totalled themselves as I did.

The film, looks like a good over the top movie in the spirit of the games and still has a fairly decent action movie plot/story going for it.

Pity they didn't wait until August for the franchises 20th anniversary, but close enough.

Yeah, with Most Wanted, they're more of a menace to society than the player is, and far too agressive from a design standpoint. I don't know if Rivals fixed that or not, but one of the annoying things about MW was how chases could go on and on, and it was as if they knew exactly where you were at any given time, despite the speed you could be going at. It stopped being fun when I realized that. Too difficult to shake off and then they'd send cars to ram you insane proportions.

I got up the full heat level this week, they send in SWAT vans, armoured ones. They smash right into you with the intent to just mangle your car like a coke can under a steamroller. And there are about 5 of them after you, yeah.

Haven't gotten a hold of Rivals to check it out either.

In the trailer we see the cops t-boning the cars at speed at least two or three times, with a few chases hinted at, so we're going to get a mixture of MW/HP style outruns.

Longest pursuit I was in in MW was 16 minutes, shortest was 11.8 seconds. But I've seen 30+ minutes on youtube.

Although it's a post-conversion, CinemaBlend's 3D gives the stereoscopy a near-perfect score. Impressive...

... but the movie still sounds like a dud.

Saw it the other day. There's a bit where Aaron Paul's character is arrested and taken away by the Police. I just couldn't resist shouting out "Better call Saul!"

Re: Need for Speed the movie in theaters on 3/14/2014

I thought it was a good movie (though it would have been much better if it preceded the Fast and Furious franchise). The driving cinematics were fantastic. I also might be a little bias because I played most of the games but...
