Review by anonymous (posted on 21-Mar-2006)

Grab a cold one, and get ready for a laugh! This is a classic Bad B movie from the seventies. not in a bad way, but a great way. As anyone whom remembers horror movies from that era will testify to, these movies took themselves way to seriously. This was difficult to accept because the special effects at that point in time were virtually non-existant. But not this movie...these folks had fun with this and it shows. A cross-country race where hitting pedestrians scores points for your team (if only I could do that in downtown Chicago!). This IS also Sylvester Stallones finest work! If you like "Shawn of the Dead" and other graphically violent comedies as much as I do, then see it's earliest predessesor Death Race 2000!
