One of the better "car" movies
27 July 2012 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie on Netflix and didn't think it would be that great of a movie. I was thinking low budget, horrible acting/dialogue, straight to DVD type of movie...The movie surprised me. Didn't go over the top on the flashy cars and the racing wasn't over the top movie style(Fast and Furious movies..honestly, how many times can you shift racing a quarter mile?) The movie kept me wondering what is going to happen next and how he is gonna get out of this one or how he is going to make it work. Its definitely worth a watch if you enjoy cars. They acting is good, camera work is good, plot-line is good. Give the movie a chance!!! It seems like the people that didn't like the movie were thinking it would be just like F&F.
