||A remake of a 1974 film (I had never heard of it)
||A seasoned car thief is drawn out of retirement to save his younger brother from the vengance of a gang boss. He has to steal 50 classic cars in three days, with another gang and the police on his tail.
||Much moderate violence, some minor and major car chases, a glimpse of sex.
||A simple plot, poorly executed. I tried to work out what was wrong with this. Maybe no chemistry between the main players and honestly I don’t think the director was really into cars. At one point I glimpsed the roll bar of an AC Cobra but that was a close as we got to one of the ultimate classics.
