The original 1974 Gone in 60 Seconds is a dynamic action indie, directed by and starring stuntman H.B. Halicki - so don't expect a master class in acting anywhere in this - about a crew of very well-organized who have to get dozens of pricey cars in a short amount of time to fill an order. It's Grand Theft Auto: The Movie. The film is a little but plotless, filled with vignettes really, showing the nitty-gritty of the car theft game (I love that kind of procedural stuff), and different situations that might arise. And once that's done, we get to a 40-minute chase sequence which I believe is still the record(?). As with the rest of the film, there's nitty and there's gritty, and it feels rather realistic - more a game of attrition in real time and real geography than outright spectacle (not to say there isn't some of that too), with real consequences for other drivers. None of your Hollywood empty car-filled highways here. The result is surprisingly tense and exciting. I watched the version that's currently available, which apparently had to replace all the music from the original, but the steady funk score thrummed along pleasantly enough that I wouldn't have guessed something was amiss.

If you have seen the one with Cage in it and found it mediocre, don't watch this one... no character development whatsoever and spoiler.
