Very good film. Kind ofa cousin to the Fast & Furious movies so to speak. Granted it didn't have the insane budget that those did but doesn't hurt it one bit. Rob Cohen who directed the first Fast & Furious film directs this film( even though swapadvd credits someone else) and does a very good job. Definitely worth owning if you can find a copy. I'd put it right with The Fast & Furious movies on the shelf. Legendary actor Dennis Hopper stars as well as, Fred Ward(Tremors & Tremors 2: Aftershocks) and Nadine Velazquez (Biker Boyz). Great action, great story. Add it to your collection.

Great Movie for Car Addicts - Dennis Hopper is Back!
W. Mason | 11/16/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is a movie for people who love cars, period. It's no masterpiece or massive Hollywood bonanza, but a good addition to any car fan's collection, and delivers a generous dose of action - expected from this genre of car/action movies.
Well produced and well executed and creative in places. It's almost like a Pontiac commercial in some spots, but redeems itself with interesting characters and great acting from Dennis Hopper, who adds his own "gravitas" to this title. Also, true car nuts will appreciate the scene with the car show - I know I did since I go to them every year...!
For the first 20 minutes or so its pure Boy Racer meets Old Hot Rodder criminal (or Easy Rider?) - but with a twist. "JJ" (Carmack's girlfriend) is easy on the eyes, for sure.
If you are a fan of Hopper, or a fan of Fast and Furious (this movie was produced by the same guy), then this movie is a nice gem you might have missed.
Originally aired on cable on USA Network, the DVD has a lot of extras and the pleasant straight run with no commercials.

Alot better then what i expected

"After reading ALOT of reviews on this movie, i wasnt expecting much. but it was actually a pretty good movie. great storyline. The GTO wasnt in the movie as much as i hoped. It showed a 4th GEN Trans Am which was pretty cool to see. I loved the part where Hopper gets picked up from prison by his grandson and talks shxt about his riceburner lol.
The special features have alot of GTO stuff. you could watch that stuff over and over. After seeing the GTO in the special features, i almost want to trade in one of my T/A's for one, but nah!! lol would still be nice to have one. espcially with a LS2 400 horsepower!"
Good story, nice cars, excellent bonus section on Drifting

"This movie was deeper than I thought. Not as much action as 2Fast 2Furious, and not as much special effects. But it is much more interesting and better made than a lot of the other so-called Fast & Furious clones, and the actors are believeable.
I almost gave it 4 stars because of not enough driving action, but there is a really sweet 10 minute or more spot on drifting in the bonus features during the "Test Drive" with Rhys Millen. If you know anything about drifting you have heard of Millen, and he gives a better look at Drifting in this one bonus segment than many so-called Drifting videos I've seen. It's almost overkill how much he lights up those tires!"
