Best, most realistic, drag racing movie ever made
22 April 1999 | by (Saskatchewan) – See all my reviews

When I go to see a movie, I try not to tear it apart and deduce what "hidden messages" may or may not be in it. This movie is plainly and simply an excellent movie about a drag racing team and the wrongs dealt them from their sponsor's track rep, and the interesting way they get even with him. The script and dialogue are the most accurate portrayal of the sport that I have seen yet...the producer/writers obviously knew their stuff and have actually *been* to a dragstrip, not merely "speculated" about one.

Highly recommend this movie as one of the "must see"'s for those who are a fan of the sport, or who are even curious to get a taste for it. (This coming from a gal who "grew up on the track".)
