8 a.m. Friday morning. The cars are on the boat, or your brother's in the coffin.
~ Raymond Calitri to Randall "Memphis" Raines.

Raymond Calitri is the main antagonist in the 2000 film Gone in 60 Seconds.

He was portrayed by Christopher Eccleston, who also portrayed Malekith the Accursed in Thor: The Dark World, Destro in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and Henry West in 28 Days Later.

Biography

Calitri is a ruthless and cruel gangster with a passion for carpentry who has promised to deliver 50 high quality cars to one of his business clients in two days time, prompting him to seek out professional car thief Randall "Memphis" Raines. Knowing that Raines is now retired, Calitri captures his younger brother Kip and threatens to kill him in a car crusher if Raines does not accept the job. Infuriated, Raines manages to disarm one of Calitri's henchmen and points the gun at Calitri's head, but Calitri makes it clear to him that the only way to save his brother is to deliver all 50 cars to him before the deadline.

Raines successfully steals 49 of the cars on Calitri's list but is unable to prevent the last car from being damaged while avoiding Detective Roland Castlebeck (who is determined to find and arrest Raines). When Raines arrives at Calitri's compound to deliver the last car, Calitri dismisses him for being late and also for damaging the vehicle. When Raines protests, Calitri orders his men to kill him but Raines is saved at the last minute by Kip and his friend Atley Jackson. Raines then finds Calitri and beats him up before engaging in a gunfight with the irate and cantankerous gangster, moments before Castlebeck arrives (having followed Raines' trail). Calitri holds Castlebeck at gunpoint, but before he can kill the detective, Raines rushes at Calitri and kicks him over a railing to his death.
