Trivia

Shortly after Jimmy enters the vehicle impound parking facility he passes a white Ford Bronco with caution tape (used at crime scenes, accidents, etc.) draped over the rear of it. This is an obvious reference to the vehicle in which O.J. Simpson was riding during his infamous slow-speed chase with police. See more »

Goofs

During the extended chase scene when the white Jaguar is chasing the green Mustang, the Jaguar hits an AMC (American Motors) Sprint hatchback in an alley but when the camera angle changes, the Jaguar has just hit a Renault Alliance sedan in an open parking lot as the Jaguar then overturns and catches fire.

Countless car chases and bad acting combine in this C-grade action flick.
1 June 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Classic action man Steve McQueen was well known for his love of cars and racing and this inspiration shines through as his son, Chad McQueen, follows in his footsteps, putting together an ambitious film full of car chases, sleazy dialog and some naughty content.

The other notable names involved are a curious list: Jan Michael Vincent from Airwolf, Dom DeLuise from Cannonball Run, Eighties child star Corey Feldman and Reservoir Dogs heavy Michael Madsen. The other stars are of course the numerous makes and models of cars used in the car chases: Porsche 911 and 928, Jaguar XK, Chevrolet Camaro and Corvette, two Ford Mustangs and more.

The story follows a reckless thief who robs shops and steals cars for a living but works by day as a mechanic. When he becomes mixed up with a heavy who blackmails him to steal cars for him, he discovers a way to turn it around and make a fortune in the process. Of all the scenes, the most memorable is when Chad's character spots a green Mustang and goes on to pay homage to his father's chase scene in his classic film Bullit.

In some of the scenes it is easy to think they didn't have any planning or arrangement with traffic management or the public during the filming of their chase scenes. The dialog is written and delivered with poor timing by all actors and excessive use of the same engine sound effects during car chase scenes can be distracting, otherwise it's a must-see for car enthusiasts and fans of bad films.

I give it 1 extra point for ambition.
