Product Description

The Car Crash Cult Classic From The Director Of EATING RAOUL And DEATH RACE 2000!

Buckle your seatbelt for The Trans-America Grand Prix, the infamous cross-country road race from Los Angeles to New York City. David Carradine of KILL BILL stars as Coy ‘Cannonball’ Buckman, an ex-con and fallen stock car champ who puts pedal to the metal for one last shot at glory. But competition on the open road is a killer …and Cannonball is the target! Veronica Hamel (HILL STREET BLUES), Bill McKinney (DELIVERANCE), Gerrit Graham (PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE), Mary Woronov (ROCK ‘N’ ROLL HIGH SCHOOL), Robert Carradine (REVENGE OF THE NERDS) and Dick Miller (GREMLINS) co-star in this high-speed demolition derby directed by Paul Bartel, co-written by Don Simpson (controversial producer of BAD BOYS and THE ROCK) and featuring wild cameo appearances by Bartel, Simpson, Sylvester Stallone, Martin Scorsese, Roger Corman, Joe Dante, Judy Canova and more.

Amazon.com

Cannonball is 100% car-crashin', gas-guzzlin', tire-squealin', '70s-style fun courtesy of executive producer Roger Corman and director Paul Bartel (Eating Raoul). Inspired by the success of Bartel's Death Race 2000, Corman commissioned him to direct this down-and-dirty adventure comedy about an illegal transcontinental car race and the eccentrics who compete for its $100,000 prize. Leading the pack is David Carradine, who's brought his sexy parole officer (Hill Street Blues' Veronica Hamel) along for the ride; hot on his tail are scurrilous Bill McKinney (Deliverance), cult queen Mary Woronov, and a host of marvelous character actors. Bartel also dots Cannonball with cameos by Corman, Sylvester Stallone, co-writer Don Simpson, and numerous fellow filmmakers like Martin Scorsese, Joe Dante, and Allan Arkush, all of whom were in Corman's New World stable at the time. Undeniably lowbrow, but also unquestionably exciting and far more entertaining than Burt Reynolds' Cannonball Run pictures (which borrowed wholesale from this film), Cannonball offers plenty of thrills for cult movie enthusiasts. Blue Underground's DVD includes theatrical and TV spots and bemused interviews with Carradine, Corman and Woronov. --Paul Gaita

This is by far one of the great car chase movies of all time. And by my count, not many people were able to notice it. Cannonball, the apparent precursor to the comedy movie series "Cannonball Run" stars young David Carridine as Coy "Cannonball" Buckman as he embarks on an illegal trans american race to bring his racing career back. This film has great chase sequences and a good story to back itself up. Cannonball is the perfect popcorn film for any gearhead or action fan. Granted it was made in the 70's and has those 70's style moments, it still is a top-notch car film on par with the classics like "Gone In 60 Seconds" and "Vanishing Point". Buy this movie.

After a sucess in Death Race 2000 - Special Edition David Carradine returns in a modernday cross-country race from Santa Monica Pier to New York City, it opens with a grim dream sequence. David and another former racecar driver are in a duel to win to earn a spot on the Modern Motors Race Team, Davie as Coy 'Cannonball' Buckman drives a Pontiac Trans Am while his rival has a Dodge Charger, Coy eventually has a Mustang which made me think of the Mustang vs. Charger battle in Bullitt which ends up the same way.

There is a van full of women (one of the gals was also in Deathrace) a Corvette (driven by David's real-life brother) a Pantera, a borrowed Lincoln. Also, Coy has a friend driving an identical Pontiac. A guy flys his Chevy Blazer to New York in an attempt to win the $100,000. Coy's brother bets on Coy to win.

At one point David get to show his Kung Fu: The Complete Series Collection skills in a fight. We are treated to gear shifting, some highway and some backroads. Some CB talk. Coy backs onto a guardrail as a ramp to change a tire as his jackstand was taken. Some engaging situations.

Toward the end some violent deaths in a massive car wreck pile-up.

The Special Features include the theatre movie trailer and TV spots in addition to an interview with David, insightful.

Entertaining.

Recently I saw Quentin Tarantino's DEATH PROOF and I was disappointed at what a waste of time it was. Lame dialogue, chick power posturing, long stretches of nothing.

CANNONBALL is one of the movies DEATH PROOF was shooting for.

It's on cable right now and I'm struck by how many people were actually in this film. David Carradine, Veronica Hamel, Bill McKinney (forever famous as the deranged hillbilly rapist from DELIVERANCE), Mary Woronov, Gerrit Graham (so funny in USED CARS), Robert Carradine, Belinda Balaski from THE HOWLING, Sylvester Stallone, Dick Miller, Martin Scorsese (yes, you read that right), Paul Bartel (also the director), Carl Gottlieb (JAWS)...quite a line-up for a 70s drive-in movie!

And the cars are awesome.

I'm a big fan of the car chase/road trip cult films from the 1970's, so I thought this film would be worth checking out. I wasn't expecting anything Oscar-worthy or mind-blowing from the script, the dialogue or the plotline, but I was hoping for some decent car chases and/or crashes. I got neither. 'Cannonball Run II' was more enjoyable than this, and HB Halicki's films had better acting and dialogue than this puppy did.

It's only worth seeing to cross off the list. I highly doubt anybody would go back for a second viewing. I sure won't.

The title about says it all. It makes ya cringe a little watching them beat up the "classics". But as with alot of 70's movies they just put the car on full out and let the cameras roll. You should see it once just for the cars.

...but, if you're a car guy, you will enjoy some some of the post muscle car period vehicles and action sequences. If you are a serious movie buff, there isn't a great plot or noteworthy acting. It's like they tried to make "The Cannonball Run" a serious drama, which is a laughable premise in and of itself. If you already have The Cannonball Run, and the original Italian Job, and Smokey and the Bandit, and the original Vanishing Point, and Gumball Rally, and Bullit, and The Cannonball Run II, and the re-make of Gone in Sixty Seconds, and you still want another "car movie", go for it, there are worse movies in the world...

David Carradine is okay but his acting was a bit over the top and not very well acted as compared to the Cannon ball run which was what my comparison was based off of in this review. The stunts weren't very good. This is that kind of movie which has to be made by ones own merits of this movie. I would say it's okay selection of a movie to watch.
