This is another story of the secret Coast to Coast auto race across America The only rule is, the first to finish is the winner. Naturally, anyone driving 55 isn't going to win. They'll need to drive a little faster than that. Well actually, they will need to drive a LOT faster that 55. Written by

Theatrical prints of the film included an announcement after the end credits that had the caption "Watch for David Carradine in DEATH SPORT" alongside the famous poster art for the film. Death Sport would become the next film David Carradine would do for New World Pictures, but the next film Carradine would do for producer Roger Corman would be Thunder and Lightning, that was released by 20th Century Fox.

We're trying to get a word here with Brad Phillips, organizer of the race. Brad, tell me, your race has been called an outlaw sporting event. Do you have any comment on that?
Well, the police and safety officals around the country get upset because our drivers tend to exceed the speed limits.
Are you saying you're promoting illegality?
Well, no, no. I didn't say that.

The story of "Cannonball" is about an illegal coast-to-coast car race in the USA. Of course, also some saboteurs are on the road to guarantee a not smoothly course of events...
Obviously not as great as Paul Bartel´s predecessor "Death Race 2000" "Cannonball" is a trash classic and cheese de luxe: cheesy acting, cheesy stunts, cheesy humour, cheesy dialogues... take a lot of car chases, explosions and add some campy humour and you´ve got "Cannonball"! But it´s always great fun to watch! A highly entertaining C-grade movie which is also very interesting for the prominent supporting cast, because Roger Corman, Martin Scorcese, Jonathan Kaplan, Joe Dante or Sly Stallone have small roles in this funny gem!
Fasten your seat belts and enjoy!!!
