Worst Movie of all time !!! Hands down
18 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All i can say is that IMDb had given it a 9.2 so i watched it ....the whole thing thinking it would get good .....what a waste of time i would have rather had a root canal !!!! Very dis-pleased considering it is a true story I give the movie a -10 the script and acting was horrible I think my grade 8 drama class could have done a better job the movie jumps around to much there isn't enough of a lead in the movie is bad from the get go the only good thing about the movie was the old cars they should have made this movie a short story it drags on and then just gets worse as the movie goes on to the point that you actually forget what the story is about Im still confused by it ....they are running bootlegged liquor then start a race track he goes to war and comes back nothing is changed and he tries racing again thats it in a nut shell
