Storyline

Ever since he lost his family in a terrible car accident, racecar driver Gary Stricker has become a reckless maniac on the track. No matter how much his coach Freddie tells him to cool it, he gets crazier every time he races his Porsche... until he meets Wendy Sheehan, who gives him a reason to live again. The problem is, she might also get him killed! Wendy's definitely hot, but she's got some killers hot on her trail. She and Gary find themselves in a desperate fight for their lives as the mysterious men shadowing Wendy try to put them both out of commission. When Gary learns of her secret past, he realizes he's the only one that can help her escape from it... or die trying! Written by Dario Smagata

Pretty Good for a low budget...Pretty Good period.
17 August 2002 | by thehorseloverSee all my reviews

This film was pretty good for a low budget independent film. Robert Wagner and Steve Guttenberg are a good acting team. I think the film's "low budget" worked for it, instead of against it. None of the charactors were too glamorous/handsome or too glib for reality. Even though the story line was something an ordinary person would consider very unreal, it was very easy to get into the story...largely due to the lack of glamour of the characters. Overall, a nice escape from reality. Which is often the whole point of watching a movie after all.
