The Shelby Supersnake has very poor fuel economy but in the movie even with the car running at almost full throttle you never see them having to stop Petrol!! See more »

Absurd attempt at doing something Need For Speed-like
Oh boy where to start....
If I'd list everything that is just utterly wrong in this movie in terms of character motivation, logic glitches .... pages would be filled.
A crash car derby has a plot that makes more sense. At least there you know its all about turning cars into scrap metal. In this movie it happens to more expensive cars and there's not really anything else happening. Cars get destroyed left and right and you sit there and think: "Yeah this should all be filled with tension and be exciting." Instead i was just bored. Just in terms of making sense as a movie so many thing were done wrong early that i felt sort of detached and was not caring about what was happening or who it was happening to.
I did see this movie in a sneak preview screening. The audience there is somewhat different. We were having our fun after all, because this movie gives you so many opportunities to laugh at it. And once we were resigned to just how bad it was, it was rather funny (unintentionally) in the end.
