Its good.
6 December 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I remember the first time I came across this movie. My friend bought this as a video from the $1 bin when a local video store was closing down. I borrowed it off him and have enjoyed watching it ever since.

It shows some cheeky Aussie yobbo jingoism and wacky 80's Aussie comedy. The lead actor Jon Blake does well as the star of the movie and the rest of the cast play their parts well.

For Aussie car fans there are loads to see in this movie. From the GTHO, Charger, AC cobra and Jaguar race.

Probably the best thing of all is that it shows what Melbourne looked like nearly 20 years ago. If you are from Melbourne you'll understand that the place has changed. See if you can recognise the Palace in St Kilda.

Anyway, 10 might be way way to high for such a movie but I'd rather watch this instead of some crap film from Sydney.
