Storyline

When his younger brother, Steve, is killed racing a hot-rod, Jeff Northup blames himself for the accident since he had built the car for his brother and had encouraged him to race it, with other boys on a special course provided by police detective Ben Merrill, who is working to reduce the city's hot-rod fatalities by providing supervision for the dangerous hobby. Jeff withdraws from participating in races on Merrill's course and, without his leadership, revert to racing on the streets. "Bronc" Talbott, a newcomers, makes a play for Jeff's girlfriend, Lisa Vernon. Eventually, the taunting-Talbott forces Jeff into a race which results in the death of a bicycling child, and evidence seems to indicate Jeff was at fault.

Slow moving
11 October 2018 | by paul-ayres-60784See all my reviews

A slow paced hot rod movie! The story was pretty average and the action was thin on the ground. The characters were weak and the fight sequence at the end is probably the worse I have ever seen. Haha.. other than that it isn't too bad.
