Andrew (Scott Eastwood) and Garrett Foster (Freddie Thorp) steal classic cars but getting caught up with Marseille gangster Jacomo Morier (Simon Abkarian) means lifting a Ferrari 62 from Max Klemp (Clemens Schick), his bitter rival. Vintage cars take centre stage, guns, gangsters, shady characters, motor bikes chases, screeching tyres, a touch of romance in the shape of Gaia Weiss, a small time thief, but it's all rather formulaic with a B-movie feel and no lift-off performances, but at least the Cote d'Azur dazzles. What would Jean Paul Belmondo, Jean Gabin, Alain Delon, Lino Ventura or Vincent Cassel done with it?
