Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times: Doesn't rise to the level of its excellent trailer. Read more

Susan Stark, Detroit News: Gone in 60 Seconds plays like a picture made by the numbers, for the numbers. Read more

Mark Rahner, Seattle Times: Weighted down with a new chassis of cliches. Read more

Philip Wuntch, Dallas Morning News: Never before has a promising cast been wasted so shamelessly. Read more

Elvis Mitchell, New York Times: Mindless hot-rodding fun. Read more

Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader: I found it more pleasurable as a time waster than either Mission: Impossible. Read more

Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star: Gone in 60 Seconds does have its moments, but they last about as long as the title implies. Read more

Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution: A warm-weather guilty pleasure. Read more

Louis B. Parks, Houston Chronicle: Most of the thefts are unimaginative in conception and execution. Read more

Paul Clinton (CNN.com), CNN.com: The action all fits into the overall story and isn't just stuck in for the hell of it. Read more

Steven Rosen, Denver Post: An especially bad screenplay. Read more

Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly: Chases are big, but -- with one exception, which stands out for its determination to bring in da noise -- joyless. Read more

Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail: Sixty seconds is all a professional car thief needs to steal a car. It takes about the same time for a moviegoer to know he or she is watching a Jerry Bruckheimer movie. Read more

James Berardinelli, ReelViews: Like all Jerry Bruckheimer films, Gone In 60 Seconds has a slick look but no soul. Read more

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times: This is the kind of movie that ends up playing on the TV set over the bar in a better movie. Read more

Charles Taylor, Salon.com: A time-waster with some enjoyably empty zip. Read more

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle: Slow this movie down long enough for people to get up to buy popcorn, and they might change their minds and go straight home. Read more

Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine: In this film we learn that it takes 8,000 lbs. of pressure to crush a car but only one credited screenwriter (Scott Rosenberg) to pound out such a lame script. Read more

Time Out: Where the original had too many car chases and not enough plot or characterisation, this has too much plot, too many characters and not enough metal crunching, tyre squealing action. Read more

Variety Staff, Variety: Perfectly dreadful in every respect, this big-budget remake of the late H.B. Halicki's 1974 indie hit may well rep the nadir of the Bruckheimer (and Simpson) franchise, and doesn't even rate on the most basic level as a good car-chase picture. Read more

Dennis Lim, Village Voice: The movie doesn't just look and sound like a car commercial. It is a car commercial. Read more

Desson Thomson, Washington Post: Cage has found a movie to challenge Snake Eyes and Eight Millimeter as the dumbest of his career. Read more

Stephen Hunter, Washington Post: It's a movie that could honestly be said to star cars, not actors. Read more
