Storyline

Ever since he lost his family in a terrible car accident, racecar driver Gary Stricker has become a reckless maniac on the track. No matter how much his coach Freddie tells him to cool it, he gets crazier every time he races his Porsche... until he meets Wendy Sheehan, who gives him a reason to live again. The problem is, she might also get him killed! Wendy's definitely hot, but she's got some killers hot on her trail. She and Gary find themselves in a desperate fight for their lives as the mysterious men shadowing Wendy try to put them both out of commission. When Gary learns of her secret past, he realizes he's the only one that can help her escape from it... or die trying! Written by Dario Smagata

The first name in action...?
12 May 2010 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

When I think "action", my first thought is always Steve Guttenberg. Not Van Damme or Tony Jaa.

The plot is: Stricker (Guttenberg) is a race car driver with a temper. When he doesn't finish his latest race because of rage, he quits. He is then embroiled with a gangster who wants to kill him.

This is a Roger Corman production, which means low-budget crap. Guttenberg and Wagner look like they don't want to be there. The racing scenes are okay, but if they had more energy to them, it would be better. This is the time when Guttenberg was trying to be an action star, and as you can see, it didn't pan out too well.

"Overdrive" isn't horrible, but it's lazy and poorly paced. Skip It.
