Born To Gather Dust
31 May 2010 | by anxietyresisterSee all my reviews

Two brothers get involved with a gangster called Phil(!) who operates an illegal race track.. one competes in it while romancing the bad guy's girl, the other is a born loser who owes the criminal a lot of money. As you can appreciate, Phil(!) don't like either of them too much. Plus, there's police officers sniffing around, wanting the racing brother to grass on the baddie so they can shut down a substantial car racket. Hmm.. what to do..

Y'know I love my low budget unknown movies, and this one right here is a doozie. The car races last for all of 30 seconds and contain all the excitement of a game of billiards, and the acting is so bad it wouldn't look out of place in an episode of the BBC show doctors. The only cast member you'll have heard of is Richard Grieco, and he's not exactly a household name is he? And I only just found out it was made for TV too.. Wow, Que surprise there.

Good things? There is a brief sex scene, where we see that Ms Shelli Lether has a delightful body, even if her thespianism is a trifle disappointing. And another bit where the sleazebag brother (who is totally irritating throughout) is beaten up by a bunch of hired goons. Man, how I wish I coulda been the one wielding that baseball bat. All in all though, this mediocrity is only for those with a curious penchant for forgotten films and plenty of time on their hands. Like Moi, for instance.. 4/10
