  1. I found it more pleasurable as a time waster than either "Mission: Impossible."
  2. 60
    What does it say that we have a closer relationship with the car than with the characters? It says Bruckheimer.
  3. 50
    This is the kind of movie that ends up playing on the TV set over the bar in a better movie.
  4. The story is unbelievable and phenomenally silly, not a good combination.
  5. 50
    In the end, for all its auto-erotic flair, Gone in 60 Seconds is missing a money shot.
  6. 50
    This new version is mindless hot-rodding fun, especially for those with a weakness for vintage cars hurtling down city streets, a group whose members include -- sigh -- me.
  7. 50
    A tepid disappointment that contains one mediocre chase scene and a lot of wasted talent.
  8. This retread has been bloated far beyond its B-movie origins, beefed up with more characters and an all-star cast, stripped of any real suspense and loaded down with music cuts and one-liners aimed at pleasing a crowd of rowdy male teenagers.
  9. 40
    The car stunts are ridiculous, all lightning-fast editing and computer enhancement -- by the time action is this far removed from reality, who cares?
  10. 40
    A time-waster with some enjoyably empty zip.

    So mired in his own ludicrous equation for contemporary action pictures that it's constantly stuck in first gear.

    This film, a remake of a hapless 1974 cheapie of the same title, can't even get the big chase right.
  13. 40
    A product that will delight car junkies and drive cinephiles to swear off film until fall.

    One of my favorite movies. I'm not really sure why. I like cars, I like heist movies, I adore Angeline Jolie. Indifferent about Cage.

    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.

    WTF how does this movie have a sub-40 score on this website?
    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.
