Fairly formulaic, but nonetheless entertaining member of the 70's car/chase/theft/repo movie genre. No lack of cool cars.
24 March 2015 | by revmpandoraSee all my reviews

Most of the other previous reviews did a thorough job of covering the nuts n bolts (pun!) of this movie, so I won't bother with all that. I didn't go into watching this with any great expectations of complex plot, in-depth character development, or deep meaning. Primarily because:#1 I have seen more than five movies in my life and #2 I'm not a schmuck. Anyone criticizing this movie because it's lack of the qualities of the great theatrical masterpieces needs to take the time to actually think about what they are about to watch before they watch it. I mean, really, it's a late 70's car movie. C'mon. I happen to be a big fan of this type of movie; the original Gone In Sixty Second being the gold standard. That was good enough get picked up to be remade with the insufferable Dickolas Cage, if you recall. And that movie had essentially no plot either. The necessity of a plot is directly inverse to the quantity and quality of car chases and crashes in a movie. Oh yeah, also the size of the cars. Therefore, any movie from the era of the American made land yacht, the 1965-1979, car almost fore-go a plot altogether! It's a fun, light, easy watch of a flick. Go into it expecting that and you won't be disappointed. Enjoy!
