Fear of Speed Surprise

"I finally got to see this movie after all this hype I've been hearing being a "Fast and the Furious" type of movie. Well, it's not. From the DVD cover it looked like a serious racing / action movie, but it turned out to be an action / comedy with lots of jokes, including body fluid jokes that was actually pretty hilarious.This movie combined several genres of action, comedy, martial arts, racing, and erotica. And to my surprise it actually worked, and I was entertained. I wouldn't pit it against the multi-million dollar Hollywood blockbuster movies, because this was an independently produced movie. Fear of Speed surpasses most independent action movies I've seen. The fight scenes were well choreographed which I rarely see in independent movies. The fight scenes are spread out throughout the movie. The race scenes were ok. There was a total of four race scenes in the movie and it got progressively more intense than the the last. I didn't catch it at first but there was a funny scene how the bad guy won a race in his modified car.There were also several love scenes in the movie with incredibly hot looking girls, and it was done in places you wouldn't imagine, especially the scene where the love scene took place on the hood of a speeding Lamborghini! That is a classic.I would say, the Special Features in the DVD was well worth my purchase of this title. From the 3D opening sequence of the DVD with a gold Lamborghini Diablo, it looked like you were playing a video arcade game. The special features itself is packed with behind the scenes, and even a 3D racing game with souped-up modified cars and if you win 3 races, you get a bonus clip which you have to see because its ridiculously funny! I enjoyed the Fear of Speed music video as well which had one of the main stars in the movie actually rapping with lots of hot looking girls and cool looking cars. The "Voice Over Bloopers" was funny in the tradition of Kung Pow, the movie. One of the best features in the DVD is an easter egg that I discovered on accident. In the main menu there is a functional button called "NOS" on the car's dashboard and when you activate it, it goes to a sort of hyper-speed and you end up with a "Kamikaze Stunts" action reel which was a music video montage of incredible fight and stunt scenes.I was going to give this a "4 stars", but I decided to give this a "5" because of the extensive special features of the DVD."
The Fear of Speed ROCKS!...

"This DVD is awesome! Fast cars, sexy girls, and a lot of Hong Kong style Kung Fu action! But this is more than just your regular action movie, it's an action comedy that's HILARIOUS! Basic plot: Max Spears, hotshot racecar driver must help his girlfriend Brittany get over her Tachophobia, or fear of speed. He is opposed by father & son drug lord team Hornero and Rico Martino. What's hilarious is that it turns out Hornero has been exposed to radiation that has made his sperm count explosive, literally. In fact, it's so volatile, that it's used as a weapon, as well as being refined into an addictive drug that Rico is trying to sell to the general public. These two guys provide a lot of laughs.The kung fu fighting is some of the best out there. (In fact, better than a lot of Hollywood movies.) These guys do ALL their own stunts, like Jackie Chan. And the girls are really sexy. Plus, there are tons of special features that will have you re-visiting this DVD over and over."
Good if you love this kind of street racing movie

"I've seen a lot of "clones" of the Fast & Furious, but this one is unique. It is way over the top and not very realistic, but still very enjoyable - almost in a parody sort of way. The premise of the movie - that a girl needs to overcome her fear of speeding, kind of lets you know how wild it is going to turn out.
If I could fault anything, it would be that it seems a little cheap in places, and like a B-grade horror movie - but if it is a Horror movie, then it is like the Evil Dead...which is enjoyable in its own way."
