Editors Note
Note Memphis Raines (Nicholas Cage) is a former car thief who is forced to come out of retirement when his younger brother, Kip (Giovanni Ribisi), is unable to deliver 50 expensive cars to dangerous smuggler Raymond Calitri (Christopher Eccleston). With his brother's life on the line, Memphis must enlist his old car-stealing partners for help in order to pull off the ultimate crime. His team includes his mentor, Otto (Robert Duvall), and an old flame (Angelina Jolie), plus a crew of other colorful characters. Once he gets them all together, Memphis has to do the impossible: organize the theft of 50 cars from all over Los Angeles in a single night, hampered by rivals, security systems, and the best efforts of the LAPD detective (Delroy Lindo) who is out to get him. GONE IN 60 SECONDS is a fun, action-packed movie featuring producer Jerry Bruckheimer's trademarks: a simple, heartfelt story, comedy, spectacular action, an excellent cast of stars and character actors, and an amazing car chase through the crowded streets of Los Angeles. This film is based on the cult classic 1974 movie of the same name, and it's a must-see for lovers of classic cars or action fans of any stripe. Dominic Sena, the director of KALIFORNIA, directed this fast-moving crime-adventure extravaganza.
Plot Summary
Summary This explosive action-thriller from director Dominic Sena (KALIFORNIA) and writer Scott Rosenberg (CON AIR) features enough car chases for 10 movies. Nicolas Cage plays a reformed car thief who must steal 50 cars virtually overnight in order to save his brother's (Giovanni Ribisi) life. He seeks out Robert Duvall and Angelina Jolie, among others, to do the impossible. Fasten your seat belts for this pulse-pounding thrill ride, compliments of producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

Review With Mission: Impossible II, director John Woo showed how the combination of tight editing and filmmaking flamboyance can transform a seemingly ordinary action film into something genuinely exhilarating. Gone In 60 Seconds illustrates the opposite: that bland direction and lifeless action sequences can turn a supposedly exciting experience into a humdrum affair. Instead of offering a heady adrenaline-and-testosterone cocktail, this motion picture, which is plagued by a lack of innovation and a needlessly protracted running length, may cause some viewers to nod off during the proceedings.

Review Gone in 60 Seconds is the latest summer no-brainer from Jerry Bruckheimer (Armageddon, Con Air), the producer who pays large amounts of cash to serious actors -- in this case Oscar winners Nicolas Cage, Angelina Jolie and Robert Duvall -- to play second fiddle to machinery. Cars are the stars here as Cage and his gang sweat to steal fifty of those babies in one night to ransom his little brother (Giovanni Ribisi) from the mob. Director Dominic Sena (Kalifornia) puts pedal to the metal in a product that will delight car junkies and drive cinephiles to swear off film until fall.

Review Gone in 60 Seconds is like a practice game between the varsity and the reserves. Everybody plays pretty well, but they're saving up for Saturday. First team is Nicolas Cage, Delroy Lindo and Robert Duvall. Second team is Giovanni Ribisi, Will Patton and Angelina Jolie, who gets second billing but not much playing time. There are lots of subs who come off the bench for a play or two. This is the kind of movie that ends up playing on the TV set over the bar in a better movie.

Everything is overdone to the point of being ludicrous; cars in Bruckheimer films don't just catch fire - they explode spectacularly, typically taking a few adjacent vehicles along with them. And car crashes are always loud and violent - but everyone in Gone In 60 Seconds wears their seat belts, because they walk away from the accidents. For action to quicken the pulse, see Mission: Impossible II. For action to dull the senses, Gone In 60 Seconds will do the job.

Review The Academy Awards should start handing out statuettes for Best Trailer: Even more than the stars or director, a wham-bang preview is what really puts asses in seats on opening weekend. Hands-down, this year's Best Trailer winner would be the preview for Gone in 60 Seconds. A roaring montage of wild chases and stolen cars set to a stopwatch's frantic ticks, it gives the illusion that the film is a breakneck-paced thriller packed with elaborate boosts of expensive automobiles...Sure, there are some cool crashes and a wild section in which a compressed gas tank bounces around like a 300-pound pinball, but that's drab when compared to the first Gone's 93-car pileup denouement. In fact, much of the film is below even Bruckheimer's usual popcorn-munching standards. The pacing seems off, and there's none of the laugh-out-loud moments from Con Air ("Put the bunny back in the box."), or the nail-biting suspense of Enemy of the State. Besides a Raising Arizona-esque foot chase and a hilarious trick played with a tractor-trailer tow truck, viewers spend most of the time watching the cast ham it up, Armageddon-style, as when the whole car theft ring listens to War's "Low Rider" before going out on the job. Ultimately, Gone in 60 Seconds is an occasionally fun ride, but a totally unremarkable one...
