Collide is a harebrained crime thriller mostly about car chases.

The fast-paced action leaves behind narrative logic along with hapless hero Nicholas Hoult.


Collide (PG13: some violence)

Starring Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Ben Kingsley, Anthony Hopkins Directed by Eran Creevy

To pay for his girlfriend's medical emergency while in Germany, an American hatches a scheme to pull off a drug heist for a gangster. Even the girlfriend calls it “a dumb idea.” Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones are Collide’s expat couple, caught up in a harebrained thriller of gunshot action as the scheme predictably goes wrong to leave the young hero pursued across the country. The furious car chases on the autobahn are what the movie is about, and, as appealing as Hoult and Jones are together, the scenery-chewing of Anthony Hopkins’ and Ben Kingsley’s rival crime bosses — one Hannibal Lecter chilly; the other Sexy Beast sociopathic — the main entertainment. 2.5/5
