Cheap production not helped by poor script and awful acting.
10 February 2005 | by rob-236See all my reviews

A professional American car thief goes to France to steal a prototype super car from an international car show for his oil baron/mobster boss - who sees the launch of this new alternative fuel vehicle as a major threat to his business.

Laughably cheap, unexciting, uninspiring caper not helped by poor casting, awful acting and a silly script.

the only plus points to this are the occasional nice car not forgetting the breathtaking scenery of the south of France. Its no surprise this film sat on the shelf for years without distribution.

One can only assume the likes of Famke Janssen and David Arquette quite desperately needed the money when they made this turkey.
