Storyline

Late one night, a mysterious car is brought into the Chicago police impound garage after a deadly traffic accident. The on-call mechanics soon discover the car has a mind of its own. With hundreds of horsepower and two tons of reinforced steel at its command, it's a seemingly unstoppable killing machine capable of outrunning -- and outwitting -- humans. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

During filming a large number of crew fell ill due to location conditions. The majority of the film was shot in an underground parking garage and there was insufficient air flow to release the fumes caused by the vehicles. See more »

Goofs

At one point the four surviving characters are shown driving through the garage in a police cruiser and park it in front of the ramp to block the hybrid in. When they get out of the car all four of them get out at the same time which would not be possible in a real police car because the rear passenger doors of police vehicles are designed without internal handles and can only be opened from outside.

Extremely bad CGI and lack of story sabotage this one.
14 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When a movie like Super Hybrid comes along, it either better be delightfully cheesy or extremely scary. Well, since it's a movie about a killer car that apparently runs on blood and it's only rated PG-13, we can cross off scary right away. Unfortunately, it doesn't poke fun at itself or do anything tongue-in-cheek either, so it's a complete stinker from the get go.

We begin the movie with the car shape-shifting (yes, you heard me and no, this is no transformer) into a hot red sports car. Two guys are tempted to steal the car and are taken for the ride of their life and perhaps turned into fuel? The movie actually begins at a car garage and the people inside that are working. They work for the city and the douche bag boss is constantly on their back to hurry up or do better. The car, of course, blends right in here -- as any vehicle that doesn't bring too much attention to itself -- and quickly finds it's first victim via it's Predator-like sensory system. You heard me, it has the cheesy infrared heat-seeking vision doohickey where it senses body outlines, that's how it tracks it's prey. When the other people can't find the person who was sent down to a certain parking level, three more people go down to check on him to see what's going on. Instead of finding him, they find a strange car that no one remembers parking. Watching it kill one of their own before their very eyes, they go to the boss and the boss quickly dismisses them as crazy -- because for some reason it's fun to make up stories like this. He gets the evidence he needs to believe their story and because the movie has to be longer than 30 minutes, he hatches a scheme to capture the car so they can sell the exclusive rights to ??? for $250,000. Don't ask -- the movie has plenty of scenes happening like that: no rhyme, no reason, no sense.

At least the acting was tolerable. I didn't really notice anyone dropping the ball or overacting or anything like that, so that's a plus. Mind you, there's nothing mind-blowing or exciting with this stinker acting-wise, there's just nothing bad in it. The weakest part of this movie is, no doubt, the story. i would have preferred a different slant on the story than what was delivered to us. I wanted more background about the car. Explain the car. Where did it came from? How did it get it's special powers? What is that thing under the hood? Is it really using human blood to fuel itself? No, instead, we're given a story about a bunch of garage-workers who have to band together to capture this freak-of-nature car. It's more of an action movie with drama between the characters -- and it's not good drama by any means. These people fight so much with each other you would think they were married.

The special effects will make you almost laugh out loud. I understand that some production companies don't have the funds to do some impressive CGI, but don't give us this. The coloring and shading is so off that it looks like it was made in the late 80's. Sure, the monster itself looks kind of cool, but when it looks like it was slapped on the final print of the film like a sticker, it loses all credibility and scariness. It's just downright bad.

It's a shame that the writer didn't take advantage of this ludicrous story. A movie about a car that kills people and not one joke about Stephen King's Christine? If the movie had some witty humor and better dialog, it might have played better. The way it is now can't even be called entertainment -- it just chugs along and doesn't deliver any thrills, chills or spills. Just disappointment.
