The Speed of Lameness
18 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm glad I didn't pay to see this stinker. I'm not sure what was worst the script (hello, intercity kids don't talk that way), the direction (the actors seem to be reading their lines from cards) or the actors (all amateur hour at best). I didn't care at all about the characters and couldn't wait for it to be over. How many of these films are they going to make that recycle the same themes we have seen hundreds of times: good hearted criminal youth trying to escape the ghetto, law enforcement who hate everyone they deal with, stereotypical tourists and elderly people with mental delusions. Hollywood better wise up because we the audience have had enough of this same-old same-old cookie cutter ideas.

Avoid at all costs.
