Need for Speed takes you on a cross-country race with a newly released prisoner bent on revenge. The plot is complicated when his ex-partner decides to place a bounty on his head and the race is on. This parental guide to the movies thinks that this one might be a little much for the younger members of the family. Here are a few of the reasons why.

The main character was set up by a businessman. When he gets released from prison, the only thing on his mind is revenge. The recently released inmate quickly reunites with his old gang and they order out for some women on his first night out. No, not pizza, you read it right. This movie features the prison and gang culture.

This movie is filled with wreckless, fast driving, racing, and frightening crash scenes. The main character is just released from prison so his language is not quite fit for all audiences. The characters are tough guys and street racers. The cars and women are fast. This movie glorifies running from police officers and the outlaw life. Need for Speed is not good for one’s insurance premiums. There are plenty of crazy car stunts.

The main character kisses his girlfriend when she is in the hospital bed and there is some brief nudity. If you so go see it, don’t leave until the closing credits are over. Bennie teaches the other inmates in military prison to twerk. In case you don’t know what twerking is, it makes mooning look like child’s play. Action involving twerking is not for the faint of heart or those with pacemakers.

The best part of the movie is the cars, but they wreck most of them by the end of the movie. This movie is not recommended for those under 13 years old for thematic content. It is not a good example for young drivers either. It is definitely not for the younger children in the family. This is an adult movie with adult themes. It is not a kids movie according to this family movie review.
