A retired car thief is pulled back into the industry to get his brother out of a jam. The challenge: to steal 50 cars in 24 hours, to meet a contract deadline. Expect lots of car chases and cliched characters. Originally made in 1974.

Ian Douglas: The '70s origins are clear in the plot structure. There is a major loophole with the baddie letting his intended victim loose. The film is a vehicle for Cage (pardon the pun) and even co-star Jolie is very much a bit-player. Apart from the car chase at the end, there is not really much to recommend in this film. Don't expect any insider tips on stealing cars either :-).
Isma Manitsa: N Cage has a silent presence on screen so I enjoy any movie he plays in. Also enjoyed the adrenalin rush one gets from the type of cars they're racing off in!
Ansel Harris (20): I thought this was a brilliant movie.
Melissa Marais (13): It's just excellent!!!
Chiné Green (14): I really like the stunts and the action. Nicolas Cage is a great actor and so is Jolie!
Andre Smit (18): For the people who enjoy cars and speed this is the movie to watch! My opinion: Totally excellent!!
