This was a pilot for a proposed series starring Susan Norman and Carmen Argenziano but it was not picked up. See more »


Most (if not all) the police cars in the movie are Chevrolet Berettas. In the scene where the police are chasing the decoy van that is believed to be hauling the guns, the police cars are clearly Chevrolet Berettas. However, when the villains open the back of the decoy van and fire a missile at the lead police car, the target police car suddenly changes to a totally different car upon impact of the missile. This can be clearly seen with the differences in wheels and headlights in the clips following the explosion (the car on fire has two headlight sections, whereas the Beretta has one). See more »


Charlie: [Shawn and Maddock are leaving, Maddock spots Michael's wrecked Chevy on a security camera] A beauty, isn't she.
Russell Maddock: Yeah, and not a mark on her. We're looking at a recording.

Better Than Expected
22 July 2001 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

So you know where this is coming from: I was in my twenties when Knight Rider ran regularly on NBC. I didn't think much of it then. To me, it was an action-adventure variation on My Mother the Car. So I had low expectations for the return.

My low expectations were easily exceeded. There are some cute plot twists and developments afoot here, bordering on acceptable science fiction. This is NOT great cinema nor film, but it is a fun little movie that doesn't lose sight of what it is.
