I’ve reviewed most of Nicolas Cage’s movie that are available on blu-ray. However I missed one or two including Gone in 60 Seconds (2000). I’m correcting that now with this movie review. I think most Nic Cage fans like this one but what of the blu-ray release? Let’s take a look, so without further ado here’s my Gone in 60 Seconds blu-ray Review.

When former car thief Randall “Memphis” Raines is informed of a huge mistake his younger brother has made he is forced to come to the rescue. That entails stealing 50 cars in four days. To do this he needs to start recruiting his old crew. But will any of them be interested in helping?
Style / Direction
The films directed by Dominic Sena whilst Paul Cameron is responsible for the cinematography. There’s plenty of car action as you might expect and the chases are done well. Overall Gone in 60 Seconds is a well made action heist movie with a touch of style.
Music / Audio Effects
The music is provided by Trevor Rabin.
Acting / Characters
A quick look at the cast gives you a good idea the movie should be pretty good. Aside from the excellent Nicolas Cage there’s the fabulous Robert Duvall who enhances any film.
Then there’s Angelina Jolie as a car mad feisty woman that can more than hold her own. She plays the roles exceptionally well and reminds me that at one time she really was a good actress. The other movie I thought she excelled in was the Bone Collector alongside Denzel Washington.
Even Vinny Jones plays his role well, admittedly he’s not much in the way of dialogue.
