Steal something, speed, crash, repeat. This action film
features so much demolition derby, it becomes somewhat more entertaining, just
on the basis of sheer volume, to focus on that rather than the thin
drug-smuggling plot. A young American (Nicholas Hoult) living in Germany
returns to a career of crime in order to pocket enough money for his girlfriend
(Felicity Jones) to have a kidney transplant. While director and co-writer Eran
Creevey does take a tongue-in-cheek approach to the proceedings, the adoption
of immoral means to achieve a good end plays out amid characters and dilemmas that
prove less than compelling.
Watch out for: Gun and
physical violence, fleeting rough language.
Rated: A-III, adults; MPAA:
