...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...

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.

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.

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.

this movie is great not only great cars and crashes but also humor and lots of classic cars of the 70's david cariden is fantastic in this as in deathrace 2000 this movie has an early sceane of time square back in the 70's which makes one see how so muched as changed it was not as crowded back then as now it is a long winding movie but is entertaining a butt load of fun

It's very much a 70s film, the car action is fairly ordinary, by today's standards, massive amount of errors in film, the story is so so, Carradine runs around with his shirt open most of the film, his fighting is almost comic, loved the cars in the film, it's the only reason I purchased it.

The original cannonball, cool cars decent story and good crash scenes. A must if you collect car movies or if you long for the days of muscle cars and bad haircuts.
