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.

Audience Reviews

4 stars

It might not be anything spectacular, but this is a really fun movie with some amazing car chases and great characters. It doesn't aspire to be anything but a car hiest movie and it does a very good job at being one. The plot is interesting and simple enough, but executed in a way that makes it fun for everyone. I like that it has a very offbeat attitude, mainly due to Nicolas Cage being the very odd person he is. I think it's a lot better then the Fast and the Furious movies that came out not too long after, they were definitely influenced by this.
