Im proud to say I've seen all three Fast and Furious films.Sure,the
plots are kinda silly,and they might be a little cheesy,but I love them
car chases,and all the beautiful cars,and the clandestine midnight
races.And Ill gladly see a fourth one.
Wanna know what the difference is between those three and Redline?Decent acting,somewhat thought out plot,even if they are potboilers,and last but not least,directors who have a clue.All three were made by very competent directors,all of them took the films in a different direction,equally exciting.Redline looks like the producer picked out a dozen women he slept with on the casting couch,and made them the extras,then picked up his leads from Hollywood's unemployment line.And the script.Yikes.Its Mystery Science Theatre 3000 bad.This is 70's made for TV movie bad.
Yeah,the movie had a few cool cars,but you don't really get to see that many in action,and the action is directed so poorly you cant get excited by the chases,and if the cars aren't thrilling you,why go to a movie like this?
Im in the audience with a bunch of teenagers,and I cant stop laughing out loud.Im getting dirty looks,but this was just a debacle.
Rent the F&F movies.Go to Nascar Race.Go to a karting track and race yourself.Whatever you do,avoid Redline like bad cheese.
Whoever wrote up "Redline" as a great car movie must be getting paid
off by Daniel Sadek to promote this ultra crappy flaming, steaming pile
of amateur crap. Easily the worst automotive movie or any movie ever
made. This makes Showgirls look like Citizen Kane.
Take every cheesy cliché out of an 80s action TV series, put in some really crappy special effects and lame characters with no relevance and you have living proof that Daniel Sadek should not write screenplays and produce movies but should remain in the real estate business.
This is such a lame movie with such a lame plot and the most contrived action sequences ever. What offends me is not that the makers of this film are idiots but that they consider the movie going public to be idiots enough to fall for this crap.
After seeing the previews I felt that this movie was going to be a nice
improvement over that fast & furious series. So, I already expected it
to have a lacking storyline, but at least this time it won't be loaded
with a bunch of powerless civics with fart cans. Unfortunately, I was
wrong. If you could only imagine a Fast & Furious movie with a worse
story line than by all means this movie is for you.
This is the absolute worst movie I had ever seen (I'm being nice - no I would not take baseball bat to my nuts like what others have said). Not only was the storyline non-existent, but the action was crap too. I guess the director thought that they could just throw bunch of females and exotic cars and then call it a movie. For an example, there is a point in the movie where the guy pushes the nos button and his Lamborghini takes off in the air and flies over a SLR McLaren to win. And after the bit where Eddy Griffin got in a fight with one of his "girls" (an Imus comment would work in this case) the girl asks to pull over and get out of the PLANE and of course they do in the middle of the desert. After this wonderful scene I couldn't take it anymore. So, I only got to see half of this monstrosity. This is the first movie I had ever walked out on. Afterwards, I had to stop for some drinks to kill all of my corrupted brain cells.
I gave it a 1 because 0 is not an option. You're better off going to the local car show and stopping at a strip joint on the way home. I will keep all viewers in my prayers.
Before watching this film I had very low expectations and went to just
see the cars. Eventually I even regretted going for that reason. Plot
is almost non-existent. Character development is non-existent. So many
clichés and so much jaw-dropping cheesiness existed in the movie that I
could only stare and wonder how it was even released. If not for the
exotics, I wouldn't have even rated this movie a 1. An attempt at a
coherent story line is destroyed by the sheer absurdity of this elite
racing cult and the laughable characters that make up its members. In
fact, the movie's plot is so predictable and simple-minded that an
average child could foretell the majority of the storyline. Bad acting,
bad plot, bad jokes, bad movie.
Don't see it. Play Gran Turismo HD instead and it'll satiate your thirst for fast sexy cars without leaving a bad aftertaste.
My Favorite part was when the credits started to roll. I wish I could
give it a .0000000000001 out of 10. I really wish I had that Hour and
thirty minutes back. Don't waste your money or time on it. I really
could have watched grass grow and felt better after wards.
Nadia was really pretty and I hope the movie didn't destroy her career. But she chose to be in it.
All in all it sucked more than any other movie has sucked. More than Kazaam and Glitter combined. That's saying something.
Apparently Hollywood is just handing out money to anyone with a camera and the ability to speak. This movie was mind numbingly bad. The casting was terrible, the acting unspeakable, and the story filled with holes. Script? who needs script? I was surprised that the movie wasn't as verbally vulgar as I thought it would be, however I got enough shots of T&A to last me a lifetime. The movie was like listening to a 19 year old street racer with ADD (who decided to buy a car instead of go to college) tell a story. Being so poorly scripted, I thought the two brothers in the film were lovers at first. The scenes at the racetrack, along with the main female actor in the film kept making me think of Herbie: Fully Loaded. This is the kind of film is what Grindhouse modeled itself after...only the writers thought they were being serious.
I registered just to make this comment (which pretty much echos some of
the ones here already) The acting is worse than subpar, it expounds on
commonly held stereotypes, has some of the worst displays of tasteless
female objectification (all bod no brain), and has some of the
cheesiest lines known to man.
including but not limited to "allright lets see what these guys can do" I should also mention that when they show the crashes involving innocent civilians, you end up feeling bad for the innocent people and start to hate the characters themselves. Eddie Griffin's character is also one of the most stereotypical black guy personas that just rubs people the wrong way. He may or may not be a good actor but this movie doesn't allow for that kind of character exploration. You want a movie that leaves the audience on the side of the bad guys? Oceans 11. This movie just makes you hate the bad guys instead of capturing the audience.
Even the cars can't make up for this fluke of a movie. That Enzo that Griffin wrecked sums up this movie perfectly. It just sucks.
It was almost worth sitting through this entire god-awful "film" just to know that I can never experience anything as bad as this again. Acting - 0, script - 0, fight scenes - 0, male lead - 0 (cheddar bob from eight mile as a suave war hero who gets the girl), Nadia Bjorlin - 10 (She is gorgeous and not a terrible actress). This is the criteria I used to average it out to a two. I lost count but I believe ever movie cliché, ever, is in this movie. When the driver that supposedly killed her father miraculously shows up at the end to race against her, from out of nowhere it cemented the previous statement. Plus he just shows up for no reason. He was never even mentioned before. I don't know what else to say here. Just watch it when it comes out on TV in a couple years. At least that way some of it will be edited out for commercials.

This movie has some of the most awesome cars I've ever seen in a movie,
and definitely the hottest women, but I would have to say it is still
one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
Here is the plot, and if you read it with a little inflection, you have the acting as well.
Beginning, bring in characters, hot woman singing (obvious lip sync). Music agent or producer comes in, thinks that she is awesome asks her to race. She turns down, too many bad memories. Flash to war hero, back from war, has several fights, and becomes movie hero with attitude that he is better than everyone. Drive off in fast exotic car. Brother races, then dies. Hero to avenge death, cut away to getting weapons from friend. (You have never seen this friend before or after, but seems to really care about him) Are you sure you want to do this; Yes; I mean are you really sure; Yes, give me weapons; are you REALLY sure; Yes; OK, I guess I can't talk you out of it, be careful man, I love you.
Now he goes to blow up his uncles house who owned the car his brother drove. Finds woman, decides to rescue her, She drives off, and he doesn't finish killing his uncle. Now there will be a race to finish the movie. Oh yeah, need to throw in one more scene with bad people coming in to beat up people that don't really matter, but maybe it adds a little plot. Race is not even that exciting, of course it ends with two cars racing, and one that should win throws in a surprise ending.
OK, I just saved you $7.00. You can send all of your money to me, because I should have given you the same amount of enjoyment as this movie does. Don't get me wrong, the cars are awesome, and Nadija is beautiful, but it is truly an awful movie.

This is by far the WORST movie I have ever seen. I was going in
expecting a cheesy movie but at least with some cool car scenes/races.
What I got was nothing. The racing scene are so low budget they sped
them up to make it look like the cars are "going fast" In one scene a
Mercedes SLR goes from over 200 to 0 in like 4 seconds by just spinning
around in circles. Its just ridiculous.
If you wanna see a real movie about cars, see the fast and the furious series. They may be a little cheesy, but 100x better than this movie could ever hope to be. Better yet just watch Mischief 3000, the best car movie ever made I think.
