Randall "Memphis" Raines long ago abandoned his life of crime, but after an ominous visit from an old friend, he finds he has no choice but to return to what he does best - stealing cars - in order to save his brother's life. It all comes down to one night, 50 cars and a contract. A true automobile aficionado, Memphis has a burning passion for cars. Fuel-injected, high-performance, v-8, v-12, turbo-charged, loaded or stripped to the bare essentials, he knows and loves every nut and bolt, every gleaming piece of chrome. Memphis is a car thief of legendary proportion. No fancy lock or alarm can stop him; your car will be there and gone in 60 seconds. For years, Memphis eluded the law while boosting every make and model imaginable, with the exception of one elusive car, his beloved Eleanor, a 1967 Shelby Mustang GT 500. When the heat became too intense, he left everything and everyone he loved to find a different life. But when his kid brother tries to follow in his footsteps only to become dangerously embroiled in a high-stakes caper, Memphis is sucked back into his old life, tearing up the streets for one last death-defying heist.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A product that will delight car junkies and drive cinephiles to swear off film until fall.
Rotten: In this film we learn that it takes 8,000 lbs. of pressure to crush a car but only one credited screenwriter (Scott Rosenberg) to pound out such a lame script.
Rotten: Perfectly dreadful in every respect, this big-budget remake of the late H.B. Halicki's 1974 indie hit may well rep the nadir of the Bruckheimer (and Simpson) franchise, and doesn't even rate on the most basic level as a good car-chase picture.
Rotten: Has the energy of a dead battery.

You WILL buy this movie. :) This is definitely a movie worth buying. Don't expect a bullet-proof plot, but the cars and the action complement a suprisingly captivating storyline. Nicolas Cage gives a great performance as Memphis Raines, trying to help younger brother Kip Raines (also played well by Giovanni Ribisi) out of trouble. The supporting cast provides some great comedy as well. All in all, this is a movie you'll be able to watch over and over.
