Did You Know?


In one sequence where a jet car is making a run, every close up of the driver clearly shows an open parachute behind the car. Wide shots of the run show no parachute. When the car gets in trouble and becomes airborne, an actor in the viewing stand yells "open the chute!". At this point the car hits the ground and is demolished, but the chute has never opened.

Without a doubt, the WORST special effects I've ever seen!!!
12 February 2004 | by junkmailsuxSee all my reviews

Someone mentioned that the cars were cool. If any of them, besides the Demon, were real and not 100% CG, that might be true. As for the acting, some cheese balls but I think Zane did an OK job. I think a little bit of fiberglass and paint would have made much better cars than the terrible computer effects that they TRIED to use. I'll give the movie a C+ with the understanding that the FX deserve an F------------. I'm sure you'll give the FX the same grade just after watching the Porsche get away from the hummers. It just looked SO BAD!!! Did I mention that the FX SUCKED??

I hope Zane and everyone else in this flick `FORGET' to put this on their resume's. LOL
