Although the movie has racing and robbing in it, that is obviously not what the movie is about. As the title implies, this film is all about the relationship of two people who happen to be a racer and a jailbird. The film is divided into three acts, all of which are completely compatible with one another, and absolutely relevant to the subject of the story. Ignore the critics who claim this film is a mess. They simply don't understand that this movie is ultimately about what that particular relationship can and cannot endure.
Also ignore the criticisms that this film is boring or tedious. There is always something happening, developing, or being revealed, whether it is a heist, a relationship, or some predicament. This is precisely why I imagine the film was disorientating for some people.
Anyways, after seeing the trailer recently, I knew I would enjoy this movie. The dude from Bullhead (2011), the chick from Blue Is the Warmest Color (2013), heists, racing, what more could one ask for?
