An early departure from director David Cronenberg's canon of visceral horror, 1979's Fast Company profiles one of his personal passions, racecars, in a gritty melodrama that also features exciting racetrack footage. Veteran toughguy William Smith is top-billed as a champion drag racer who clashes with the unscrupulous oil-company executive (John Saxon) who sponsors his team.

The second one didn't really pick up where the last one left but it keeps all the main characters. I felt as I watched it, nothing really happened until the last 20 minutes and then it felt a little rushed. The car chases are entertaining. I've seen better and I could make better car chases. An arrogant thing to say but I do enjoy a good car chase and if you make cars characters themselves, you feel the intensity of the chase. Like there is something at stake. The Bourne movies are an excellent example of this. It also starts to lose, let's say, it's frenchness. Which is a shame because this is what drew me in in the first one. Still, it's brainless fun and if you want something slightly different to mainstream hollywood films, look no further.

The power of Busey is strong in this one, but what isn(TM)t strong is the soundtrack. I do give credit that the evil biker gang does go out of its way to be evil. I also give credit that a super criminal lays pity on Busey by way of a private arsenal and a super truck. Heroes rarely get it so good in these tales. Not the best film, but fun with friends.
