great driving and cars never ending story
23 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Watching the driving and racing scenes is great though a few takes are obviously in front of a screen. the action is great except after about 3 episodes of one scrape after another I stopped caring anymore.

Of course originally you were supposed to wait a week between episodes so I guess that gave you time to relax. Really the 7 is strictly for the cars. The fight scenes are laughable.

Still Burn 'em up and Madge and Bobby are likable enough and Tony gets a laugh or two. Just don't bother watching it all at once and maybe skip an episode or two. It won't matter it's really one big chase.

Watch it for the cars though and enjoy the racing. Wow can they ever move that tow truck around.
