Fun to watch. If your a race fan that is.

(spoilers?)

I see good points and bad points in this movie. First the bad. Outsiders and people who don't know much about Formula One racing and their ilk might not get the lingo. (Trust me, I consider myself an outsider but know enough about racing to get drawn into the movie.) Outsiders probably will shun this movie and shut it off before it hits the end of the movie. It'll totally bounce off their brains. Probably why this movie got so poor movie reviews is because critics aren't racing fans. It has the edge, but perhaps it's that edge they don't like.

Second, Gina Gershon (sp?) for some reason wasn't made for this role. She just totally sucked in it. She's been great in other movies like Bound and especially The Insider. But she's too snobby for her own good in this movie. She doesn't play the part of an a**hole very well. Sure she was an a**hole in The Insider but for some reason she pulled it off there.

Third, some of the car accidents looked a tad overdone.

Now for the good. The dvd is totally rad. 51 minutes of deleted scene's. With Stallone commenting. Who the hell can top that? This is a speed movie it'll catch you if your into that type of thing.

Recognizing actors in here was fun to. Including the youngsters brother. Knew him straightway from Dead Poets Society. The enemy (for awhile :) played a Replacement Killer in The Replacement Killers. The actress who played Sophie looks alot like Jennifer Connelly. Not kidding. You compare them and you'd swear they were twins. :) Not that that's a bad thing.

In the end, I like this movie enough to buy it. (haven't yet, but wait a few months and we'll see). Like I said before though...outsiders beware... racing might not be up to your stuff.

7/10

Driven isn't as bad as you might think..

A young hot shot driver is in the middle of a championship season and is coming apart at the seams. A former CART champion is called in to give him guidance. Driven is for sure not my favorite Stallone movie or my favorite from the ones he produced or wrote but it's still a pretty nice movie and let me talk about the flaws first of all some characters could be directed far better for example Jimmy played by Kip Pardue, the cgi is mediocre and it can be easily spot on but at least it's not as bad as the cgi from the Star Wars Prequels and that scene when the car crashed and fly around from the Race to the river was a bit over the top although the director isn't that bad into filming this film they could easily find someone better although he has directed some pretty cool movies for example Die Hard 2 and some crappy ones like The Legend of Hercules. It's not the best F1 movie ever made but still it's worth your time just for Sylvester Stallone only if you want my advice go check out Rush from 2013 directed by Ron Howard and stars Chris Hemsworth and Olivia Wilde.

Wheelie Awful

So I was looking at the poll for IMDb's best car films and I saw this title. I couldn't believe I hadn't seen it before. It has big actors in it, and it's about fast cars. How could it possibly go wrong?? Basically it goes wrong from the first minute and never goes right again (Oval car racing pun intended. Sorry).

The poor acting is made much, much worse by the lousy script. The story is all over the place. But the worst thing is the camera work. The whole film is shot like a CSI Miami montage.

Soft Rock/Dance music accompanies every race scene, along with jumping angles and split screens.

At least now I know why I missed the film when it was released back in 2001. I just have no idea how it achieved a lofty 4+ stars on IMDb.

If you want a proper race film watch Le Mans. Even Herbie Reloaded is better than this pile of poop.

This is the first time I've ever rated a film 1/10.
