Fast, loud, expensively mounted, and charged with testosterone (qualities it shares with most other films produced by Jerry Bruckheimer) Gone in 60 Seconds is the archetypal popcorn movie that offers a shot of pure, visceral entertainment. Nominally based on a 1974 B-movie with the same title, it stars Nicolas Cage as a former car thief -- the best in the business, we're told. Cage comes out of retirement to help his irresponsible young brother (Giovanni Ribisi) pay off a debt to a debonair but ruthless gangster (Christopher Eccleston). To do this he must steal 50 cars in one night, a herculean task for which he enlists the aid of onetime associates Angelina Jolie, Robert Duvall, and Will Patton. Director Dominic Sena develops nail-biting suspense with this lengthy, elaborate sequence, but it's those high-octane chase sequences that really put Gone's pedal to the metal.
