The story centers on two car thieves, brothers, who journey to the south of France for new opportunities and wind up in the cross hairs of the local crime boss. Andrew and Garrett Foster (Scott Eastwood and Freddie Thorp) are thieves who specialize in luxury cars, only the most expensive cars. They've been hired to steal a gorgeous Bugatti 1937 valued million euros, so they head to the south of France for the job. But they get caught, and Jacomo Morier (Simon Abkarian), the local crime boss who owns the Bugatti, doesn't take it lightly. In exchange for their lives the two brothers will have to steal a car from Max Klemp (Clemens Schick), Morier's arch-rival, and not any car, Morier wants them to steal Klemp's 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, his most prized car.Written by
There are several nods to Steve McQueen throughout the film, ranging from the watch Scott Eastwood's character wears, to certain imagery in the graffiti on the street. See more »
In the opening scene where the BMW M4 turns into the path of the semi, the dashboard of the car shows the vehicle in park, something the car would not likely allow the driver to do while moving. See more »
Classic old school plot. Classic getaway. Classic cars. Classic chases but with beautiful shots of tight mountain roads. Pretty girls (only two of them). Nice soundtrack.
The makers of this movie failed to add depth to the main characters, because they shouldn't have even tried. The movie has enough pretty cars, two(yes, only two) pretty girls, decent pace which was watered down with shallow love stories. For some reason it gives the feeling that they cannot fail which spoils the thrill: "How are they gonna make it now!?". Yes, acting was cheesy, but convincing enough so you can bare it before the next chase. Clint Eastwood's son was so stiff, that I was expecting him to spit tobacco and to get on the horse at any moment now. The good thing - every single stunt was very real. No zero gravity, no "turn off the physics for a while" moments. Engine roar, rubber and grip. I would prefer this one before any of the last FF movies.
