This high-octane action/racing movie is due for a 2014 release and already has some high quality stills and even a trailer. I for one, have very mixed opinions on the making of this movie, so I've made some pros and cons to see if you agree or not.

Pro #1: Aaron Paul is cast.

Aaron Paul is hot property in Hollywood at the moment. With Breaking Bad over (In which he won 2 Emmy's for) he is now able to star in more films and I think he is a great casting choice. For one, he is a great actor and secondly all the Breaking Bad fans are sure to support him.

Pro #2: The Trailer


I have to admit the trailer was very well done for this film. Nice music from Max Richter and the cinematography looking great too I was pleased and it really did make me excited for the film!

Pro #3: There seems to be a genuine plot

I am a fan of the Fast and Furious franchise but one thing, its always lacking is plot. Sure like this film there's nice cars, half naked girls but sometimes that's just not enough. I think there will be emotion and a genuine plot in this film that would be delivered well by Aaron Paul.

Con #1: Too soon.

In all honesty, it would be impossible not to relate Fast and Furious to this film. There are going to be jokes and there are going to be comparisons but there's nothing the makers of Need For Speed can do about that. They knew what they were getting in to making this film. Fast 6 was only released this year and already has a Fast 7 in the works. Need for speed definitely isn't 'fresh'.

Con #2: Supporting cast.

When I heard that Aaron Paul was to star in this I was delighted as I think he's a real talent but I knew it would need a good supporting cast too. I'm slightly dissapointed. Michael Keaton is good but I am not a fan of Dominic Cooper ever since Captain America and The Devils Double. I would've preferred a better supporting cast but I'm happy with Aaron Paul.

So what do you guys think? Are you excited or is it just another action movie you'll skip? Let me know in the comments!
