Aaron Paul, of TV’s Breaking Bad, is clever casting as the petrolhead hero in this video-game-based 3D action romp about “underground racing”. So edgy and smouldering he should really be the villain, he goes tyre to tyre across America with nasty rival Dominic Cooper. The stunt work (CGI-free, it’s claimed) is bravura. Michael Keaton excels as a motor-mouthed radio jock. Girl interest Imogen Poots is smart and funny, wielding her English accent like a sex toy.
