breaking bad aaron paul -

The first reviews of the Need for Speed movie are in and - as you may have expected - the critics don't appear overly impressed.

Five reviews are listed on Metacritic, with the movie scoring an average of just 31/100.

Variety enjoyed the film more than others with a 60/100, praising its star Aaron Paul for his performance.

"Paul plays the part with the flinty, tightly wound charisma of a small man who makes up in movie what he lacks in stature," wrote Variety's Scott Foundas. "There's something of the young James Cagney in him, and he's by far the best thing Need for Speed has going for it."

However, Village Voice's Amy Nicholson could muster up only 10/100 for the film, pointing to the wasted talent of both Paul and Imogen Poots.

The film opens in the UK today.

I'm with you and PB on this some of the so called "worst" films are my most favoured.

Just take them for what they are and enjoy. If you need to be challenged mentally or get inspiration from a film then this clearly isn't for you.

I'd trust this review more.

Exactly. It was never going to be an oscar-winning plot. Plus metacritic only has 5 reviews listed so far, not many from the usual film review sites or magazines either.

Heard good things from some game people that saw an advanced screening, stating if you go in with expectations of it being a silly film with cars and explosions then it'll be great.

Also probably heightened if you drink before hand ha.
