what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this movie includes strong language, sexual references and situations, and lots of tense scenes and explosions.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about how the way that the movie "disinfects" the hero-thief by giving him (1) a good motive, (2) a commitment to going straight, (3) even worse bad guys, (4) loyal friends who demonstrate that he is worthy of respect and affection, and (5) a resolution that seems fair to everyone. They may also want to talk about how vulnerable everyone is to crime, and how to protect themselves and their property.

Rotten: It's just kinda dull though, unless you get excited by 60s Thunderbirds, Chevies and wot not.

Remake of the film of the same name, Gone in 60 Seconds is an entertaining film, but lacks so much in everything else. The film delivers on the action, but it lacks any story depth, and a good cast (aside from a few actors, the talent here is awful). The film fails to capture the essence of the original (which was a decent flick, but only worthy to watch for its chase scene that nearly spans the entire film). I felt that this film lacked anything good to truly make something extremely thrilling, and memorable. The problem I had with Gone in 60 Seconds was the acting, and story. The film isn't too thrilling and has a predictable plot that doesn't really satisfy. Like many reviewers have stated, the only great thing about the film is the cars. I love that Mustang in the film, and along with Bullitt's Ford Mustang GT390, its one of the sexiest Mustangs in film. But that's really where it ends. Gone in 60 seconds is simply a mess of a film with bad acting, and not even the car chase could save this picture. The film was entertaining, but it lacked too much substance to make it worth watching. I've seen the film when it first came out, and didn't think much of it. If you want the best car chase film, watch Bullitt instead. The remake for Gone in 60 Seconds is a failed attempt at delivering a wicked car chase film to the screen. This film could have been great, but with a lacking plot, bad acting and bad directing, the film is forgettable.

Oh my, Jolie looks absolutely hideous in this movie. Anyways, this movie was badass. I loved those car chasing scenes. And the ending was as expected.
