Trivia

In many of the scenes the dialogue doesn't line up with the characters mouth movements; sometimes with dialogue with no movement at all. The would indicate post-production overdubbing possibly due to help with dialect differences between the UK and US viewers. See more »

Goofs

When the cars are leaving the parking garage the second car crashes through the right hand security gate despite the fact that the first car had already broke it off when it left. See more »

Not a movie to miss!
26 September 2001 | by jochumSee all my reviews

I rented a few movies a few days ago, and I watched this one last because I wasn't sure if it would be a good one. Well I was totally surprised after seeing just 10 minutes, the suspense is so good, it gives a very real impression about teenagers doing crazy stuff, there's a very good storyline, it's funny sometimes, there's good action, nice cars and also some drama.

Afterwards I really felt like this was the first good movie I had seen in months.

If you haven't seen it yet and you like some tuned cars racin, kids doin very crazy stuff and a bit of drama, you'll love it!
