Just when you thought EA might of understood Need for Speed didn't sell as a story driven game they went a did this. Ok this might be ok (it won't) but when do games stop being games.I mean there have been some great NFS games but never did anyone think this would be a good film.
Think Ubi have better games to make into a film, Driver would of be a better choice.

If Universal can make a movie out of 'Battleship' I'm sure Dreamworks can make a movie out of NFS!

They just bought a name. Iv played a lot of the NFS games and can barely remember any of the stories in them. They can make any generic car chasing movie and put the NFS name in the title and it will work just fine.

I genuinely believe that a N4S film would benefit from style over content. I don't care for characters, i don't want to see a love interest, or underlying cop drama and I don't think it needs a heavy plot..

Need For Speed: The Movie should be car porn. Loads of great camera work showing off beautifully customised cars, flares bursting off the neons and reflecting off of shiny alloy wheels, loads of slow-mo camera work hovering around smoking tyres and flame bursting exhaust pipes. I wanna see insane bumper to bumper racing action during the day and night. LOUD! Make the engines and exhausts very, very loud. A constant supply of quick edits to rev counters, boost gauges, gear changes, double clutch, mirror views and lane shifts. Don't forget to make the cars go sideways a lot.. People love that. I wanna see the tense moment when the street cars roll into the carpark and the drivers psyche each other out. Bring back speed garage and jungle music. All good races need basslines blowing out the woofers.

In fact, leave the main protagonist hidden behind blacked out windows. I don't even care who he is. All I want to know is that his car is fast and he rarely gets beaten in it. Like those 80's ghost cars.

Show us racing at sunset, racing at night, racing in the boiling midday sun, racing in the wet and in storms.

To summarise, I want lots of roaring customised cars from all over the world and I want to see them racing a lot. Anything else is irrelivent.

Perhaps I should start a Kickstarter.

Dreamworks make a lot of animated films that are similar to Pixar and Disney. Why don't they just turn it in to their version of Pixar's Cars and have all the cars talking? It would be better than yet another Fast and Furious.

Or...just turn it in to a modern version of Cannonball Run with lots of humour and Jackie Chan.
