Mediocre car movie
2 May 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Despite an exciting trailer and raving reviews, I found myself somewhat let down on viewing this movie.

What should be an exciting and explosive Action/Adventure is really a bore of a car movie with "jokes" with the only highlight being the explosive action filled demolition derby of a finale, hence the reason this movie gets a 4 instead of a 2 or a 1.

If you do happen to rent or buy this movie, it's ideal to skip it the finale for the best car-related action sequence you are ever likely to see.

As a final point, I would like to say I was very disappointed by this cult movie, but was glad I at least saw it (Thank Jesus I didn't buy it). 4 stars out of 10.
