Storyline

A racecar driver returns from the dead to seek revenge against his former rival. Seventeen years ago, Cutter McCullough and JJ Sawyer were burning rubber on the tracks when McCullough perished in a fiery crash. In the aftermath of that accident, Sawyer was riddled with survivor's guilt, and vowed never to race again. Almost two decades later, Sawyer is making his living transporting racecars to the track when he decides to pay a visit to his old hometown. There, he sees that McCullough's car has been mysteriously restored, and senses a familiar presence in the driver's seat: McCullough is back, and he's determined to settle the score. When Sawyer becomes the prime suspect in a gruesome series of murders, he realizes he's not the only one in danger; his ex-girlfriend and her daughter have somehow ended up on McCullough's "to kill" list as well, and if Sawyer fails to save them, the highways will soon run red with blood.

Decent leads and chemistry help to rise above the formulaic script and silly story
10 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have seen far worse movies than Phantom Racer, even though I do think the movie could've been much better. It does have redeeming values certainly. A couple of the attacks are actually gory and quite fun. But it was the three leads that really elevated. Greg Egvian still has a lot of charisma, Nicole Eggbert shows good chemistry with him and I do think she is better than she was in Baywatch and Brenna O'Brien despite her rather clichéd role has a couple of amusing wise-cracks. The film looks decent too, nothing extraordinary to see but much more than the usual hackneyed editing and fake effects I've seen in too many movies of late. However, the characters are never developed sufficiently enough, they are stereotypical(the sheriff, the teen) and some like the sheriff are so annoying it is difficult to identify with them. Even after someone dies they don't act in ways you'd associate someone to react in those circumstances. The script is very formulaic as well, there are a lot of car chases, action scenes and attempts to destroy the thing but it all amounts to little and none of it is particularly exciting. The dialogue is trite, especially in the "finding out who your dad is" subplot, which never did ring true to me due to how forced everything was. The story, not helped by the lame climax and the evil presence being far too obvious from the get go, never really grabbed me and came across as silly in places such as the people cruising down the road and somehow the car can kill people in really wild ways yet can come away unscathed with no explanation as to how. Apart from a couple of good ones, a lot of the action and killings while inventive on paper look very average on screen. In conclusion, could have been far worse mainly because I liked the leads but it was too silly and formulaic with characters I didn't care for for me to really sink my teeth into it. 5/10 Bethany Cox
