Elevator Pitch A criminal street racer, whose girfriend has been killed by members of a Mexican drug cartel and an FBI agent cooperate in order to bring the trafficers to justice.
Content A hell of a lot of driving about in modified cars, mostly in the dark or in tunnels under the Mexican border. A bit of secondary violence and at one point a lot of machine gun fire. Some explosions as cars are blown up, some girls snogging in a night club and one implied sex scene. A bit of drinking, no nudity athough some girls in short skirts.
A View This was almost watchable, although the many scenes of young men sitting grimly behind the steering wheels of their various cars were a bit wearing. I am not much of a judge of acting but even I could see that it was terrible. But it made a lot of money, so if you like movies about cars this could be for you.
