Sub-par at best Nov 9, 2006
The story starts out way slow. Acting is less than convincing. Car scenes could have easily been done better even on a low budget. The fact is that there are plenty of street-racers out there who would show up for free and give much better demonstrations. The choices of cars used, along with the predominantly white cast shows that very little research was done to provide a credible basis for the film.
The only reason it gets more than one star is because it accurately conveys the Gospel message. I recommend that if you show this in a Youth Group setting, you set it up as a comedy. Then it's actually quite funny.
Great film to present the truth! Sep 3, 2005
I liked this movie very much. Its teen characters are very believable; the mother of the two main teenagers is a great example of a Christian being "real" and trying to reach out to her son's lost friends. The gospel is presented clearly and unashamedly. If you are looking for a standard flick with a few racing scenes where some unrealistic hero spews out some cool phrases that no one ever takes serious in real life, this movie may be outside of your box. However, if you are looking for some teens making some real-life decisions (which are mostly made in the teenage years!), this movie will be challenging and interesting. I can only recommend watching it.
Disappointing Jun 20, 2005
Bought this movie based because it was advertised "best youth film," but I was too ashamed of it to let anybody else watch it. I thought it was terrible.
Fun! May 13, 2005
I liked this movie. From what I've heard, a lot of people feel that it's a poor man's Fast and the Furious, but I think it held up in its own right. The story follows two brothers--one who has recently been saved, and one who is not. Both brothers used to be street racers, but after his conversion the Christian brother feels he should not race anymore. When he forgoes his faith to race just one more time, the story accelerates into a surprise ending. Definitely worth the price of a rental!
