A very good film!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"A lot of action, humor, and car chases is what you will find in this movie. What you will also find is some really good acting. Chad McQueen plays a very likable character, aside from the fact the character is a car theif! Also Jan-Michael Vincent turns in a really good performance as a crime boss. There are also subtle referenced to the movie "Bullitt" which starred Chad's dad Steve McQueen, like a green Mustang like Bullitt's and some car chases remeniscent of the ones in Bullitt. So if you like "Bullitt", I think you'll like this one. Even if you haven't seen "Bullitt", you should still see this one. Highly Recommended!"
Like father, not like son......

"Redline was supposed to be a high octane action/drama movie with a suspense topping plot including hot cars and add Chad Mcqueen (the infamous Steve Mcqueen's son), and this sounds like a hot movie right? Wrong! This movie has a very bad storyline which honestly doesn't have you holding your breath at any given time during the flick, the acting leaves much to be desired including Chad's on screen presense which is nowhere near the caliber of actor his father was, and even the car chase scenes are so flat and slow between the Jaguar XJS and Chad Mcqueen's Highland green fastback Mustang. A cheesy movie which i consider along the lines of "Overdrive", "Banzai Runner" and other b-rated car movies. Now i am a sucker for b movies, but this one truly was completely boring and makes you wonder if it was even unscripted during filming. Nice try Chad, but no cigar."
Chad Mcqueen, Jan Michael Vincent, & Corey Feldman. How can

"Let us start off by saying, Chad you've done it again. First Death Ring, then Money To Burn, now Red Line. Never has chain smoking and an attitude problem looked so damn good. McQueen was not only the star of the show, but he also co-produced this B classic! But who else could have pulled this off? A lesser man would have replaced an actor (Jan Michael-Vincent) who was merely weeks removed from facial reconstructive surgery. But Chad ignored quality and focused on creating lines that were barely audible. Were they unable to afford to hire another actor? Probably, since Sid has it on good authority that Jan-Michael Vincent will work for a cup of noodles, a warm can of Busch, and a fifth of Hack Daniels(the B version of Jack, found on every Chad McQueen set). Or maybe Chad had to pay Vincent back for a large gambling debt, or maybe he was just trying to cater to his biggest(OK, only) fan, Sid the Elf. So, to put it into perspective, you had a main character who you coundn't understand when he talked and couldn't look at when he was on screen. That's as B as it gets. This amazing feature coupled with the extremely perplexing plot makes Red Line very enjoyable as long as you're willing to abandon all logic and accept the foregone conclusion of sheer confusion during and after the film!"
