Notebook Reviews: GONE IN 60 SECONDS

4 out of 5 stars

Domenic Sena – 2000.

Gone In 60 Seconds is a hugely enjoyable slice of mainstream entertainment from the mighty Jerry Bruckheimer. This popcorn thriller is expertly shot by director Dominic Sena – the film has a beautiful colour palette and visual style. The action scenes are incredibly well staged and the film is edited to perfection – this is how you deliver on-screen action. 

Like with the majority of Bruckheimer productions, Gone In 60 Seconds has a wonderful cast Nicolas Cage, Angelina Jolie, Robert Duvall, Giovanni Ribisi, Christopher Eccleston, Vinnie Jones, Delroy Lindo and Will Patton – and they all embrace the pulpy material with gusto. Cage in particular impresses as Memphis Raines, the expert car thief who leads the high-octane action. 

Gone In 60 Seconds is fuel-injected fun!
