Good time waster
13 April 2017 | by bobrob-65478See all my reviews

I gave this film this score because its in no way terrible, but compared to other films in the category its fairly poor quality. But the over all action is decent.

There's basically a couple of police or whatever they are called in the poor Asian country that is still rich enough to have cars. And basically as far as I could piece together they have not managed to figure out if they use CCTV they can electronically fine people if they do something wrong. So basically most of the movie is these kinda weird cops chasing down anyone that they see fit which I am guessing are mostly criminals.

There's some dialogue here and there and one scene with them trying to go slow but have high RPM in the car where the guy touches another guys arm kinda gay like, but anyway moving on.

Basically think Fast and Furious - without the awful soundtrack and characters trying extremely hard to remain relevant for more than one movie. In fact go a step further and Imagine 'Fast but not so furious'.

If you want a movie you don't have to pay too much attention to but the payoff for that tiny amount of attention is good this is the one.
