Good stuff, but it's less about bikes than you might expect.
12 April 2000 | by (Costa Mesa, CA) – See all my reviews

I'll say this right up front: Full Throttle is a damn good movie. The only thing is, if you're looking for a roadracing movie where the racing is primary and the plot is secondary, try "Race for Glory" instead. Full Throttle is less about bikes and more about relationships. Namely, the relationship between Jimmy, the street racing king; Annie, Jimmy's long-suffering girlfriend; and new guy David, and up-and-coming racer who befriends Jimmy.

The street-racing scenes are more than decent, but where the movie shines is in the drama department. Kar Lok Chin (Jimmy) looks suitably tortured as he recovers from a debilitating crash, attempts to reconcile with his father, and tries to stop sabotaging his relationship with Annie.

Without the convincing dramatic elements, the movie would not have held up, and while I would have preferred more racing, I found Full Throttle to be a solid piece of work. You can't ask for more than that.
