After an attempted theft of his daughter's husband's car, LAPD Captain Gibbs declares war on master car thief Maindrian Pace - overtaking his boss' betrayal and pursuing the Eleanor as Pace tries to make his getaway.
Junkman and movie-maker Harlan Hollis struggles to stay alive when a jealous partner in his company hires goons to kill him. Full of amazing car chases, fantastic crashes, and edge-of-your-seat action.
When a South American drug lord pays Pace to steal 48 cars for him, all but one is in the bag - thereby, the police precipitate in a desperate car chase against Pace and his Eleanor across Southern California.
Yet another entry in the "cop that plays by his own rules" genre. Jack Vacek is Turner, a renegade cop who purposely defies his authority by trying to expose a city-wide drug ring that takes him from Los Angeles to Mexico and back.

Captain Gibbs is astonished when Carl says his license plate number is "UDUNOME". Carl explains that "MRCOOL" was already taken. As seen later in the film (and in the original Gone in 60 Seconds (1974)), it was taken in reality - by Lyle Waggoner. See more »
Several of the unmarked police cars in the riverbed during the opening chase have rotating lights on the passenger-side roofs, despite there only being one officer inside driving who could clearly not reach all the way across and out to the roof on the other side of the car to put them on.

You know, Merle, we haven't seen our pet ducky in a while. I wonder what happened to Mallard?
I don't know. I saw him going down that way, you know. Then he was gone.

Almost all of the sound effects and all of the music has been completely changed for the DVD release, in both the new "Deadline" footage and the old "Gone in 60 Seconds" footage. See more »
This film is nothing more than a re-cut version of Halicki's 1974 classic Gone in 60 Seconds, but the end result is actually pretty good, if not sadly misleading. Those who are expecting this to be a new film will be disappointed. The film, at least, offers a lengthy opening car chase scene, which I suspect was actually cut from Halicki's previous movie, The Junkman, with pretty good crashes. The film also offers new footage featuring Hoyt Axton as the blustery Captain Gibbs, who promises to nail Halicki to put an end to car thefts in the city, and Dan Grimaldi (Don't Go in the House) as Gibb's whiny future son-in-law whose priceless Bricklin is stolen in the film's opening scene. Axton and Grimaldi add a lot of comedy to the new scenes, particularly where Axton reprimands and berates his bumbling group of detectives at the impound yard.
Though it doesn't necessarily count as a new film, you might get some joy out of this one.
