The cars are the stars ..............
27 May 2010 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

A very average storyline, 200 m.p.h. cars terrorizing folks in the California desert. One local cop, Dean Stockwell, and his nephew seek revenge against a drug dealer, Billy Drago, a driver who killed Stockwell's brother. Remember all this is happening before drinking and driving was a major offense. The Ferrari, Pantera, and Porches, put you in a time capsule, elevated by Dean Stockwell's genuine acting, Billy Drago playing, well, a deranged Billy Drago, and believe it or not a few chuckles, mostly supplied by sidekick mechanic, Charles Dierkop. "Bonzai Runner" is no masterpiece, but any movie that introduces "girl's speed stripping" has to be cut a little slack. - MERK
