Its Not Just About a Race
The world wide and famous video game know for its luxury cars, reckless driving and stunts Need for Speed is an action drama film packed with pleasure. Directed by former stunt-performer turned director Scott Waugh, Disney’s film captures this eagerness through a tale of revenge, suspense and car stunt work.

With the help of sharp cut angles and occasional aerial shots, viewers cannot help but feel the intensity...
