Excerpt: Una de las más populares franquicias de videojuegos salta a la gran pantalla con un resultado no demasiado satisfactorio. Coches espectaculares hay, sí, faltaría más. Pero no hay argumento, ritmo o emoción alguna.
Excerpt: “Need for Speed” has practicality on its side and makes those car scenes count. The rest of the film certainly gets the job done if you don’t mind putting your brain in neutral rather than fueling it.
Excerpt: I’ve been playing Need For Speed since the franchise’s inception in 1994. That’s right, “I was there at the beginning, man! I liked Need for Speed before it was cool to like Need for Speed, man!” For a franchise of generic street-racing games with over twenty pretty much interchangeable installments so far, when it comes time to “adapt” the “source material” to a feature film, you can pretty much make up any character and story as long as it revolves around racing.
Excerpt: Sure, there are one-dimensional characters, ridiculous plotting, embarrassing dialogue, a wafer-thin story, and questionable ethics. But who cares about all of that? The filmmakers know why you’ve come to see a film titled Need for Speed.
