    Brain-softener.
  2. Interesting and idiotic elements almost exactly balance each other.
  3. I'll tell you what's gone in 60 seconds, all right: my attention.
  4. There were moments when I thought Gone in 60 Seconds might be a passably entertaining movie. I figure those moments, strung end-to-end, would total 30 or 40 seconds.
  5. It's barely a movie at all, more like a thousand car commercials spliced together in an hour.
  6. Written in 60 Seconds would be a more appropriate title.
  7. 30
    Doesn't just look and sound like a car commercial. It is a car commercial.
  8. It has a tendency to run ragged and spends an unhealthy amount of time idling pointlessly at intersections.

    In this film we learn that it takes 8,000 lbs. of pressure to crush a car but only one credited screenwriter (Scott Rosenberg) to pound out such a lame script.
  10. 30
    Does boast, as a major plot point, a dog's bowel movement. And things do go 'boom!' quite spectacularly and frequently enough to distract from the truth that there is virtually nothing going on in this whole movie that Nintendo hasn't done better.
  11. Eventually, the senses jam and a mental lube job is in order.
  12. Proves a theory first advanced in the movie "Repo Man": The more you drive, the stupider you get.
  13. A mindless, cliche-riddled action-cartoon, a blur of metal and fire and screeching tires, with bad dialogue, cardboard characters and a volume set so high, it makes the Indianapolis 500 sound like chamber music.
  14. How did a dignified pro like Duvall get stuck in this fender-bender?

    As I said, I don't know why I really like this movie. I just do. I can watch it over and over, and I never get tired of it.

    Overall:
    I know this isn't a great movie, but it is a guilty please that I just can't turn away from.

    Come on now, this is obviously not the best movie ever, but it certainly does not deserve a rating in the 30's.
    This movie has plenty to enjoy - Angelina Jolie, Nick Cage, awesome cars, and of course...."Eleanor".
    This movie was so influential that plenty of people spent upwards of $100k to have a replica of Eleanor made for themselves...ya know, not me, but rich a&&holes.
