I don't know whether it would be more interesting to talk about how this movie was made than the actual movie itself, so I'll talk about BOTH.

Shot almost entirely at night with mini-cams suction-cupped to the sides of high-performance cars, the nocturnal lifestyle of highway streetracing gets its most accurate portrayal ever! This is one of the few racing movies you'll ever see that shows a speedometer cracking 140 mph and the car is actually going that fast (with a teenage driver no less).

No stunt people were used to create the numerous races, fights, and eventual car wreck that occurs. Amazingly, no one was hurt during the filming though some of the drivers were ticketed by the California Highway Patrol, and you get to see the 'CHIPS' captured on camera, too (more illegal surveillance for the audience to enjoy).

Worth watching just for the bright, colorful, visual imagery produced by experimental cinematograpy utilizing modified camera shutter speeds as well as the bravery of the filmmakers themselves for sticking with this project for three years, amassing over 250 hours of footage which is distilled down to about an hour and a half.

In case you're wondering, the title of the film refers to the names of the main male and female characters. 'Quattro' is the nickname of a caucasion racer who's dad used to race professionally (both have awesome cars). 'Noza' is a Mexican hottie who's boyfriend 'Chato' is in jail (as usual), so she ends up falling in love with Quattro, naturally. Later the boyfriend gets out of jail and the inevitable chase and fight scenes occur as predictably as you would expect.

Trying to capitalize on the street racing scene and the success of the Fast and the furious franchise and need for speed series. This film is too little too late. I'll give it up to decent camera work but bad acting, bad line delivery, and the same ole' romeo juliet story ruined it. It felt like a self important student film trying to be edgy. Save yourself the cash folks.

Yes the movie is low budget Buuuuuut it was/is the most realistic movie on modern import street racing made... I saw the release at the Latino film festival in LOS and it was the 2nd most sold out show of the tour. The love story is a little played out but it was well adapted...I liked the intensity of the main actor..and overall every street racer/car enthusiast I know liked the movie.. I dont think the producers were trying to capitalize on the whole fast and bad acting fliks because those movies got everything all wrong. Plus the cars were fake up until the last F&F where there were no Japanese actors in a movie thats supposed to take place in Japan...

Check out this movie...you will think its cool overall...!

High energy street racing movie is now available on DVD. The film won Best Cinematagrophy at Sundance Film Festival. The movie about street racing was filmed illegally on the streets. Joaquin Hernandez is a teenage street racer and a player who comes between two friends. When he tries to pull the ole switcheroo during a urine screening at a probation meeting he becomes incarcerated. While he is locked up his main girl finds out about his indiscretions with her friend. While the girls are hanging out watching the guys race, Hernandez's main girl catches the eye of the only white racer on the strip, Derek. Sparks fly and the drama continues.

Streets of Legend is one of those low budget films with a lot of heart and a lot of appeal. The music is good, the racing effects are awesome and the acting by the newcomers is satisfactory. It's a good flick to pick up on DVD and the DVD comes with a lot of bonus features. It's one of the best films with a primarily Latino cast aimed at a young audience since "Mi Vida Loca."

I bought the movie because my car was in one of the racing scenes. It took me a long time to find this movie because when they shot it they said it was titled, "Quatro Nova." I finally looked up Greg Leone because I knew his car was in it. I think the "Behind the Scenes" on Youtube is way better than the movie (mostly cause my wife is in it, she acts like she doesn't know how to start a race). The acting is so bad that it's painful to watch. I skimmed through the movie with my finger on FF just to get a glimpse of my car. I don't see how anyone could really enjoy this unless they were a part of the film making process. I give the director respect for an idea and having balls. My brother is a director and I know making a film sucks the life out of you. Other than that, I don't think there is much I can say for the movie. It looked like a bunch of friends with cameras and a script trying to make a film. It would've been a little more bearable if the lead actress was hot.

the story of this movie was sort fo cool, in a different way. maybe I got tired of the same kind of movies with the same kind of story, this is a little different and that surprised me. it involves tuned cars which I find cool, but u can seen it as a clash of cultures and ways of living and actually it had me wondering for its running time what was going to happen and actually I got to care for the characters. I like to see this as a portrait of good intentions on a bad scenario and how it develops, it definitely got me interested. a B movie that does it job well, I even found it more interesting than a lot of A movies.
