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.Read more ›
Check out this movie...you will think its cool overall...!
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."
