The frunk (front trunk) of the Porsche is clearly a mock-up. It is much bigger than the real thing, and the camera is zoomed out far enough to reveal wooden framing in the top right of the shot; a real Porsche 911 has no wood here. See more »
Soundtrack was literally from one of the Best of the 80's CD's
Seriously, that's how bad this movie was. Make a bet with some friends as to which corny 80's songs will be heard in the movie. You have a good chance of getting quite a few. If you're a big fan of corny 80's songs on the radio or 80's night at the bar, you'll love this film. Worse yet, they don't even match the soundtrack appropriately to what is happening in the movie.
Charlize Theron is a good actress, but man, she whiffed in this. Her character is an insufferably boring, pompous Brit who has no personality. Sofia Boutella, this could be a career ender for her. John Goodman is just phoning it in. James McAvoy does his best to save the whole thing, but the entire project is a big fat mess.
The twist at the end is bad, so confusing, so out of left field, that it's not worth even worrying about. We will never see a sequel to this film. Guaranteed.
My one compliment is for the fight scenes. They were pretty good, but wasted in a garbage film like this.
