A young FBI man infiltrates a gang of street racers who may, or may not, be engaged in hijacking trucks using three identical modified cars. They have rivals, a gang of motor cycle riders who may also be the perpetrators. When the detective falls for the sister of the gang leader, and during a heist one of the guys is injured, his loyalty and his anonymity are both called into question.
Trucks are hijacked by people in black cars, a lot of street racing takes place, the rival gangs engage in shoot-outs, the FBI man argues with his bosses usually demanding more money, more time or another car. FBI raids take place. There is a love interest. So, a lot of street racing with young women sexily clad and heavily modified European cars, just a bit of sex and drinking but no nudity.
|A View||I only watched this to make up the set, so to speak, but there was a bit of a plot and the director avoided those irritating shots of feet with accompanying unlikely gear changes, so it was not too bad. Maybe give it a miss if you don’t like movies which feature cars, or have it playing while doing your knitting.|
