Movie Reviews

Too late...
dongle | New York, NY | 02/02/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Trying to capitalize on the street racing scene and the success of the Fast and the furious franchise and need for speed series. This film is too little too late. I'll give it up to decent camera work but bad acting, bad line delivery, and the same ole' romeo juliet story ruined it. It felt like a self important student film trying to be edgy. Save yourself the cash folks."
I don't understand!!!

"I don't know whether it would be more interesting to talk about how this movie was made than the actual movie itself, so I'll talk about BOTH.

Shot almost entirely at night with mini-cams suction-cupped to the sides of high-performance cars, the nocturnal lifestyle of highway streetracing gets its most accurate portrayal ever! This is one of the few racing movies you'll ever see that shows a speedometer cracking 140 mph and the car is actually going that fast (with a teenage driver no less).

No stunt people were used to create the numerous races, fights, and eventual car wreck that occurs. Amazingly, no one was hurt during the filming though some of the drivers were ticketed by the California Highway Patrol, and you get to see the 'CHIPS' captured on camera, too (more illegal surveillance for the audience to enjoy).

Worth watching just for the bright, colorful, visual imagery produced by experimental cinematograpy utilizing modified camera shutter speeds as well as the bravery of the filmmakers themselves for sticking with this project for three years, amassing over 250 hours of footage which is distilled down to about an hour and a half.

In case you're wondering, the title of the film refers to the names of the main male and female characters. 'Quattro' is the nickname of a caucasion racer who's dad used to race professionally (both have awesome cars). 'Noza' is a Mexican hottie who's boyfriend 'Chato' is in jail (as usual), so she ends up falling in love with Quattro, naturally. Later the boyfriend gets out of jail and the inevitable chase and fight scenes occur as predictably as you would expect. The plot and acting in this film are obviously not the most important parts and thankfully they only act as a loose connection to the streetracing scenes galore.

Fans of Hollywood prodcut like the recent "2 Fast 2 Furious" will automatically mentally compare the heavy special effects excitement vs. REAL adrenalin since the best parts of this film are the incredibly dangerous nightracing scenes that had to be conducted outside police surveillance, which often meant driving with the headlights OFF down the highway at over 140 mph...even paid stuntmen won't try that too often (if at all).

Worth a rental if streetracing is of interest to you. Like I said before, the way they made the film is crazier sounding than the finished product, but it's still watchable."
