GONE IN SIXTY SECONDS (Theatrical Release USA 2000)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Gone in 60 Seconds—B-grade, a remake of the 1974 film of the same name—is MUCH! MUCH! better than the original. Rarely do remakes do as well as their original feature movies, but this one has WOW! factor all over it. Pulse-pounding, engine rumbling classic. Nicolas Cage is in his prime and delivers. His supporting cast has been well-chosen. It’s a fun and riveting watch.

Storyline

A car theft specialist needs to save his brother.

Yes. This movie easily becomes worth multiple watches. A good addition to the home video library.
