In a near-impossible race against time, Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul) sets out on a mission of revenge – but it proves to be one of loyalty and redemption. Hitting the road with the world’s most exotic supercars that deliver real speed, real danger and real grit, Tobey pushes his limits to the max – no matter what the odds are. Adapted from the top-selling video game franchise – Need For Speed is an action-packed thrill ride.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: With stock characters and a preposterous plot, this noisily diverting video game adaptation fulfills a Need for Speed and little else.
There's nothing here you haven't seen before.

You wouldn't think a movie called Need For Speed would feel so slow.

Fast-paced stunts, dangerous driving will thrill teens.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Need for Speed is an action movie, based on a video game, and centers around car racing (and car crashing). Teens will be attracted to the movie thanks to its star Aaron Paul in his first lead role after the hit TV series Breaking Bad. Expect plenty of car chases, stunts, and crashes, and characters die, though only a little blood is shown. Infrequent language includes a few uses of "s--t" and "bitch." In some scenes, women are shown as sexual objects, a man strips naked (only his bottom is shown), and the main character and the leading lady fall in love and nearly kiss. Parents of driving-age teens should be aware that the very fast stunt driving in the movie was done by both stuntmen and actors after intensive training, and they might want to remind them that this kind of driving in real life is extremely dangerous.
