Very Poor - cheesy and clichéd
Verified purchase
Well, here's 90 minutes of your life you won't get back if you watch this.
Really disappointed. The acting is very wooden (or maybe it's the script they had to work with?) - it almost looks and feels like a collage student's attempt at film making.

Considering the story revolves around short oval racing - NASCAR - the action is few and far between. Just a few cars going round and nothing much happening. If you make it to the credits (well done!) they you'll notice there were only 2 stunt drivers credited - but about 3 times that amount of people credited to looking after Mr Travolta's hair & beard (I kid you not!) - and that tells you just about everything you need to know as to what you'll be letting yourself in for.

It's a boring, long drawn out film (even though it's only about 90 minutes - it feels sooooo much longer) - with no surprises whatsoever. You can probably guess the the plot & ending 5 minutes in from the start. And chances are you'll be right!!

It's incredibly clichéd - and probably doesn't do the folk of the deep South of America any favours.

definitely one to avoid imho. It could have been a really interesting film based around the racing subject. But it's not :-(

The blurb on the description really wants taking up with the advertising authority! "Action packed, testosterone-fuelled thriller" Hmmmm...... it's anything but!

A step backwards for Travolta
Verified purchase
The concept was meh and the delivery felt hurried. A racing series that no one really follows with developments that didn't last long and felt rushed as they were over-turned, all forgotten and living on a fluffy, happy cloud in no time at all. Feuds that weren't actually feuds as everything was just too nice and forgiving. As for the ending, the climax was so short that by the time to had got over waiting for the exciting bit, the film was over.
