Below Average Racing Film
on July 5, 2015
Stallone is not the main focus of this film. He unlike Jim Garner, Paul Newman or Steve McQueen is not closely associated with motor racing. He looks like just a gratuitous and random Hollywood star thrown into the mix to bolster the box office.
He does not seem very credible as a race driver. The story is not strong. There is however one good scene where Stallone does this stunt where he puts a stack of quarters on the track and picks them up from behind the wheel while negotiating a four wheel drift. It looks quite impossible and I wouldn't believe it possible except that I know that it is a recreation of a real stunt often performed by Fangio in the sixties.
If you don't know who Fangio was you're not likely to care for this film.
