Cale "JR" was a successful race driver. After his death, his father and his former fiancée Maggie hate to hear his arrogant rival Billy boast constantly that now nobody can defeat him. Harry, a former air force pilot, asks Maggie to give him Cale's car for a race against Billy. Only after he's lost the race (and the car, to Billy) he confesses he never drove a race before. Maggie is angry, but she gives Harry a second chance after he got himself a new car, since she's fallen in love with him.
Well, the good thing about the movie is that it is going straight ahead like the cars on the road. It's filming beautiful people (including Julie Strain as Maggie) in sunny locations, and that's passing the time at least. But the bad thing is that the race scenes are poorly filmed and edited. There is even a crash outside the frame, so you don't see it happen, you just hear the noise. One can't film such a thing any cheaper. This lack of action is rather deadly, because now the emotional scenes have to carry the whole movie and they are not strong enough for that. In a nutshell, "The Last Road" tries to be a drama, not an action movie, but doesn't succeed at that.
