Movie Reviews

What a waste of money

"I bought this DVD expecting a program similar to the the one shown on Speed channel. Instead you get an 80 minute DVD of which, only about 15 minutes is devoted to Grand Prix. The remainding "filler" material contains incomplete film biogrophies of James Garner + Eva Marie Saint among other useless features. Also contained is extremely graphic footage of a burned driver being literally pulled from a car. For this reason alone (and there are many others) I'll be throwing this DVD in the garbage."

"This is absolutely worthless! I can only echo the comments of others. I fast forwarded through it once and threw it in the trash. Can I rate it as a ZERO?"

"I was scared as soon as the disk started with a goof ball in a bad tux, sitting in a dimly lit room, introduced the making of Grand Prix. The quality of the introductory shots must have been done on a 1980's vintage VHS hand held. The film, as said in earlier reviews, is maybe 15 minutes long, and must have been done as a theater promotion, or as something shone on the old CBS Friday Night Movies used to show as filler in the 1960's. I can give you the accurate time, because I have not looked at the disk again due to embarrassment. What makes it worse is that I have been waiting for three months (as of late December 03') for the widescreen VHS version; sense there is no DVD available. Save your time and money!"
This is a Joke!

"Basically what you have here is a short and not all that informative film on the making of "Grand Prix" followed by two biographies which consisted mainly of a bunch of theactrical trailers and narration. The racing documentaries at the end were old newsreel clips. I can't believe that anyone thought this was a worthy product."
