Movie pick: Need For Speed

Movie pick: Need For Speed

This is one of the dumbest spectacles I've ever seen, and I know dumb spectacles.

Aaron Paul stars as a mechanic whose buddy is killed by an evil dude (Dominic Cooper) during a street race.

He vows revenge and ends up driving across the country with a cute chick (Imogen Poots) in order to race against the bad guy again.

The only thing I can think about when I'm watching one of these dumb flicks is what if some kid walks in front of the car?

These guys are always driving on the wrong side of the road and flying through red lights and going over sidewalks - it's just so irresponsible.

How is the "thrill" of going fast worth the risk to some innocent bystander's life?

Anyway, the cars are fancy and Poots is pleasant.
