2 April 2008 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of my favorites because it's a lot like Fast and The Furious, except instead of tuners there's lots of muscle cars. It's also a lot darker and serious then most car movies and has a pretty good primary plot line. Very cool drag racing sequences but the story definitely isn't dominated by the "car" aspect of it. There is plenty of romance and drama as well. Richard Grieco plays a unbeatable driver who drag races a beautiful, red 1969 Ford Mustang pro street at a local track. But car people will find it pretty unrealistic that this car can't be beaten by ANYTHING that's at the highly crowded drag strip in the film. The drama comes from crooked business men that are corrupting the city with their sinister methods.
