Movie Mayhem – The Art of the Steal / Need For Speed

Back in the ’80s and early ’90s, Michael Keaton and Kurt Russell were major draws. They were in the prime of their careers and could do no wrong. But as with any aging actor, a new crop of young bucks began to steal their thunder in the late ’90s, and though they never really disappeared, they didn’t draw the same attention as they once did. So it’s good to see both of their now weathered mugs still finding work, even if it may not be in the same high-profile type of films they used to make (though Keaton is starting to cross back over with his role in February’s Robocop reboot). And what these boys prove in their newest respective films, Need For Speed and The Art of the Steal, is why they were such sought after actors in the first place — and why they deserve to regain their high-profile status. Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More
