why I liked the film
6 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is a story of an ex-racing driver, played by Cornel Wilde, who is not a very likeable person. As the story develops and this driver must run a final race, I found myself cheering for him to win. The final racing scenes makeup for an otherwise uneventful movie. Cornel Wilde did a very good job in the lead role. I would purchase this movie if it were available.
