Deliver The Fifty Cars Deliver The Fifty Car
528 wordsI am not into cars, but I presume those who are fanatics might get more out of this film than I did. Gone in Sixty Seconds barely works. There are plenty of car chases, but they are filmed in such a manner that it is hard to tell whats going on. The camera swerves back and forth and the scene drowns into a blur. Rarely do we get a steady camera shot that lets us perceive the situation. The story is about Memphis Raines (Nicolas Cage), an ex car thief who is now retired to teaching kids the art o...

As I see it, the three qualifications of a hero are courage, sacrifice, and leadership. A definite sign of a hero is courage. One who does not cower in the face of danger is often given this title.
