Jurgen Prochnow stars in a thought-provoking film about economics, politics, and money. Ralph Korda (Prochnow) stars as the genius engineer responsible for creating the "WorldCar" an enviromentally correct automobile made for a multi-national car corporation The Berlin Auto Group. As word gets out that the "WorldCar" has made its debut, everyone wants a piece of the pie. France pushes Korda into making deals with them, while in the meantime, a large Arab oil magnate wants him dead in order to maintain the oil market. All in all, a very interesting film, but gets lost in the confusing end sequences of the film. I actually give it 3.5 stars if such a thing is possible. Prochnow is fairly good, and ruthless of course. " I don't give a damn about the enviroment, my car just happens to be enviromentally safe" A good view with an interesting story.

West German film, also known as "Blitz, which in my opinion, is the better title for this movie than "Killing Cars" (Which is also a bit misleading) as there are actually no killing cars in this movie (Like in say, "The Car" or "Maximum Overdrive"), but like I said, this movie is cheezy, but somehow manages to be fun. The copy I purchased was not from Vidmark, as stated on this site, but I bought a copy from Cineplex Odeon/MCA. I got it on eBay from some guy in Canada/

The movie revolves around Ralph Korda (Played by Jurgen Prochnow from "Beverly Hills Cop II"), a brilliant automotive engineer who is building The "World Car", an environmentaly car that runs withour any kind of gas (A hybrid, if you will.) which, as the back of the box says, could mean a revolution in the international motor business and a threat to all oil producing nations. His project soon comes to a halt by an Arab Oil tycoon who happens to own a large financial stake in BAG. Korda, compelled to complete his "World Car" initiates dealings with investors from New York and other tycoons. He soon becomes involved in a violent and deadly gamble with the odds not in his favor. (SPOILERS AHEAD) The movie ends with Korda, having brought back the "World Car", now wrecked, back to the company headquaters, with the investor telling Korda that the project has been cancelled.

Overall, there was some unintenionally funny parts, like the guy doing the handstand. That was funny. So if you're into cheeze like this, this is for you. Otherwise, steer clear.

Feel free to comment.

The idea behind the story that someone can invent an environmentally friendly car and have it's manufacture stiffled by corporate giants is probably closer to the truth than we would like to know. The story gets pretty confusing and it isn't always clear who is on what side during this picture. However, I could watch Jurgen Prochnow show snow and give it three stars.
