Gone In Sixty Seconds

Gone in 60 Seconds is the latest summer no-brainer from Jerry Bruckheimer (Armageddon, Con Air), the producer who pays large amounts of cash to serious actors — in this case Oscar winners Nicolas Cage, Angelina Jolie and Robert Duvall — to play second fiddle to machinery. Cars are the stars here as Cage and his gang sweat to steal fifty of those babies in one night to ransom his little brother (Giovanni Ribisi) from the mob. Director Dominic Sena (Kalifornia) puts pedal to the metal in a product that will delight car junkies and drive cinephiles to swear off film until fall.
