This movie feels like it should have come out in 1972. Its an old-school car movie, in the same vein as Dirty Marry, Crazy Larry or Vanishing Point.
Its a lot of fun and doesn't take itself too seriously. There's lots of b-plot not related to racing, that feels good. Like an old LA drama.
The racing, however, is a bit lack-luster. Given that the entire film is about racing up and down Mulholland Drive, the had to shoot everything at night so as not to interfere with daily traffic. So you can't really see shit.
Its still brings suspense, and the over all tone of the movie is really comfy. Its like a movie you'd unexpectedly watch in the 90's on MST3K.
It also had a BANGER of a song in it - check this shit out!
