Need for Speed ★★★½

Aw, man, all I wanted was to sit down on a Sunday evening, chug a few ales, and watch explody boom-boom.

To be fair, this movie had a fair few explodies and booms. But Aaron Paul, despite the 'whoa' expression we're used to from Breaking Bad (not to mention the inevitable typecasting that will ensue) actually nailed it here.

Also, any production team that says 'hey, CGI car chases are for lame-o's' gets my vote. And the racing/driving footage in this movie is pretty ace.
