Action - Gone in Sixty Secons is a remake of the 1974 cult classic.
Viewers who have liked previous Jerry Bruckheimer productions like
Armageddon, Bad Boys and Con Air are most likely
to enjoy the stylized action and chases. Others may find the emphasis
on over-dramatized character conflicts pointless, or may consider the
entire film overly familiar.
PROFANITY: Moderately strong and very frequent SEX/NUDITY: Some suggestive heavy petting VIOLENCE: Fistfights, shootings DRUGS/ALCOHOL: One scene of characters drinking beer ACTION: Several chases and fights COMEDY: Several one-liners
In an ever-changing world, there's something understandably comforting about the impressive sameness of Jerry Bruckheimer productions (Con Air, Enemy of the State, Armageddon). There's a formula to his films that has rarely let him down, a formula that continues with nary a whiff of change in Gone in Sixty Seconds. This remake of the 1974 cult classic pumps up the volume and the testosterone, making it look and sound like every other Bruckheimer film of recent years. The presence of top-notch actors somehow makes the filmfeel less awful than it should, but it's still an over-stuffed action package. The names have changed, but the orange filters remain the same.
