The film concerns "Memphis" Raines (Nicolas Cage), a former master car thief forced to return to his former trade and steal fifty specified cars for crime boss Raymond Vincent Calitri (Creator/ChristopherEccleston), who is threatening to kill Memphis' brother, Kip (Giovanni Ribisi), because Kip had taken a contract but failed to fulfill it (a stolen Porsche Carrera was chased to Kip's warehouse and the collected cars were impounded).

* StuntDouble: Averted, as Cage did most of his own stunt driving. He even continued to pursue it as a hobby after the film was completed.



** Something of a MythologyGag, referencing a tiger found in one of the Cadillacs, foreshadowed by a tiger's paw tattoo on a woman who looks just like [[Series/ThreesCompany Suzanne Summers.]]

* TooDumbToLive: Kip's crew of young car thieves, who due to inexperience and youthful arrogance threaten the whole heist at several moments by acting stupid and belligerent, like carjacking a car full of heroin that wasn't even on the target list.
