This movie reminded me of some other early '80s movies like "Savage Streets" and "Angel" in the way it was filmed. The movie centers around the "lowrider" car enthusiast culture. The cars featured in this movie are the real stars of this show! Although the acting is bad, it's actually humourous. I don't know if it was the print the TV station was playing or if it was actually recorded like this, but the sound sounded like it was recorded in a vacuum. The plot is about an unscrupulous promotor that is trying to wipe-out a hot shot "lowrider" in the neighbourhood. Along with this, there is a love interest conflict and lots of bouncin' rides! One thing that this movie portrays is the passion the guys have for their cars. In the movie, and in reality, the people that participate in lowrider car shows really put their heart and soul into their cars. Another point with this movie is that it features an all latin cast, which is rare in movies then, and now. To sum it up, if you like car movies, especially "lowriders" bouncing on the street and totally tricked out, you will enjoy this early '80s flick that has resurfaced out of obscurity.
