Fresh from prison, a street racer who was framed by a wealthy business associate joins a cross country race with revenge in mind. His ex-partner, learning of the plan, places a massive bounty on his head as the race begins.

In “Need for Speed,” a character cites the oft-quoted phrase that a man in a big, flashy, expensive car “is overcompensating for something.” The same can be said for this movie. It wears on its sleeve the desperation of trying to create another macho racing franchise like “The Fast and the Furious.” That series had six movies to create, shape, modify and solidify its mythology. With five fewer tries, “Need for Speed” aims for “F&F’s” level of goofy, fan-pleasing grandiosity while attempting the existential vengeance vibe of “Drive.” The resulting mishmash is as exciting as getting a tow from AAA, and just as slow.

    Did you notice different sidebars on different pages? With that option i can have right content at right place, I will be gutted if i was forced to display same sidebars on all pages. I must say the small but important things were taken cared of nicely in this theme.

      Yes, different sidebars on different pages is sensible. But did you notice this comment form below? It lets me enter my comment first and then the formalities like asking my name, email address, etc comes. It sound like a small thing but see how it affects the psyche of your readers who uses that form to post a comment.

    This seems like a cool looking WordPress theme for starting a personal blog, the focus is on the content and i am loving the typography of the blog. Readability is what bloggers look for and in my opinion this theme is a perfect match.
