"Redline" is an auto/action thriller that features an extensive exotic car collection. The movie features a Phantom Rolls Royce, Lamborghini Murcielago, Enzo Ferrari, Ferrari F430, Ferrari Scaglietti and two Mercedes SLR McLaren AMGs. A $450,000 Porsche Carrera GT is actually crashed during one sequence. Eddie Griffin accidentally crashed and destroyed the Enzo Ferrari, one of only 400 ever produced. The film follows an ace driver who becomes part of illegal drag racing.Written by
In the opening sequence of the film, a building with a sign that reads "Quick Loan Funding" can be seen. This was the name of writer/producer Daniel Sadek's company at the time. See more »
The scene where Carlos ride to his revenge mission in a Ducati 999, the engine noise that can be heard coming out is an inline 4. The 999 uses a L-Twin, which make a different noise to Carlos' sportsbike in the film. Ducatis have never used an I4 engine in their R Motorcycles, only V twins, L twins and a V4 (Desmosedici). An "inexperienced ear" might think the sound from the scene is even from an I3 (as used in Daytona 675) or V4 (Desmo, Aprilia 2009) but it is an I4. See more »
There are cars that get you from point A to point B. And then there are cars that get you from point A to point B really fast. Fast cars cost big money, and with millions of dollars at stake, there are people who'll do anything to win. People who take risks and never play it safe.

Redline is not the worst movie you will ever see, in fact believe it or not, there are worse movies out there and I can name a few.
1. HUNTING SEASON, a low budget movie that displays a level of stupidity Redline doesn't come close to, and with acting that is beyond the worst you'll ever see.
2. THE CAVERN, a horror film that has a director who thinks shaking the camera makes the movie scary each time the monster jumps out, but it only gives you a headache and you can't see what goes on half the time because more than half of the scenes are too dark.
3. FIVE ACROSS THE EYES, another low budget movie that shows pure stupidity, it features a group women returning home from a football game and soon find themselves being chased by a shotgun carrying maniac, and during these chase scenes the only thing these girls know what to do is scream, argue, slap each other in the face, and puke coffee, and to top it off the shotgun freak you can easily tell is a woman, but is referred to as a guy.
If I consider these titles I just pointed out, Redline I can guarantee is not the worst movie on the planet, granted it has its flaws, but so do a lot of other films, including some of the big names, and I'll bet you will find possibly one or two films, with similar flaws as this one and they'll have better ratings, and one thing I would like to point out, this film does not have as many plot holes as I thought, but you do need to pay attention though, and the acting wasn't that bad either, the better performances are given by Nathan Phillips who shows more emotions in his scenes, and Nadia Bjorlin who is possibly the most beautiful woman I've ever seen and reminds me of a girl I haven't seen in years and miss very much, and does play role really well.
So, love it or hate it, like I said its not the worst.
