Disappointingly Terrible
25 September 2015 | by shoobe01-1See all my reviews

There's a good story back here, and they put a lot of effort into filming it well: period look is pretty solid, got access to some amazing cars, dressed the tracks and even got RVs and the ancillaries (shops, homes, etc) to look really good. The stock footage works pretty well, even.

But that's it. It's not paced at all, just a series of vignettes, with captions so you know who is being raced. It's terribly written, and not just in detail but in concept. Every scene is expository, nothing feels organic, like it is actually happening in the real world.

Filming is terrible, and jerks between horribly static telenovela quality and stupidity like the camera being tilted sideways during absolutely boring scenes.

And the acting, oh the terrible acting is terrible. Really, really hard to watch this movie.
