Bang Tommy hits the gas, warp speed.
31 March 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I just accidentally caught this one. Not knowing quite what it was it was a bit odd at first, but when I got used to the mix of cars humor, two Indian dudes and the side plot it was entertaining.

This is kind of a documentary show, only it's not. Ketzal Sterling takes a trip around the globe to find car enthusiasts and race cars. It focus on cars and horsepower and stuff that I, who is not that into cars, really don't care about. However, Ketzal makes it all interesting and rather funny by making small stories out of it. In addition there is the side plot witch is just stupid, however, makes for some funny situations and nice driving. As for the two Indian guys. Well, not funny really.

While the acting may suck the driving is 100%. And after all it is the driving this movie focus on. Ketzals narration is very nice. Good written and well told.

The cinematography is very nice. It varys a bit, though. Some shots are technically quite good and looks delicious with nice camera moves, while others are not so good with a bit shaky camera and such. Not a problem, but still it's there and it don't make a perfect movie. But, I would have to say the over all cinematography is nothing to be ashamed of. It's kind of a documentary in the way it's made and so the cinematography is good taking that into consideration.

As for the music I'm not really into techno, but I have to say it really fits this movie. I actually enjoy it.

All in all this is an enjoyable movie. It's not a traditional car show. It doesn't just focus on the technical car stuff, but add a lot of humor and pointless plots that makes this movie different from all other car shows and make it more enjoyable for people not that hard core into the whole car scene. If you like car this is a must see. If you're not into car you might still like it.
