Scott Eastwood stars in this high octane action stacked heist movie. Think Fast and Furious meets Gone in 60 Seconds meets Transporter. Overdrive has elements from all those mentioned movies. Most importantly it’s very entertaining and fast-paced fun action. The plot revolves around two luxury car thief brothers who venture to France to attempt a score, until they get caught up with a local mob boss. Fast cars, fast action and fast moving plot. This movie had my attention throughout. With Fast and Furious franchise splitting in a different direction, this has a chance to be the new car heist action franchise, that isn’t completely overblown and over-the-top like the Fast and Furious movies have become. There is a sense of normalcy and purpose that exists in this movie. A wildly fun ride with cool younger actors in the drivers seat.
Overdrive is out now on Blu-ray and DVD
