But word of the engine reaches Vincent Duplain George Kennedy , a crew member under Al's rival, Kenny Landruff Marc Singer. It's almost as if you can tell that these two are friends in real life which totally takes away from what is supposed to be an old rivalry. The acting is secondary school, music is juvenile, the camera work is poor throughout especially the in car shots - they just reinforce that the 'driving action' is not believable. The plot was somewhat boring as I struggled to pay attention all the way through. Doch schon bald muss er feststellen, dass er seinen ebenso talentierten Mitschülern hinterherfahren muss.
I saw this movie on the cable video store and it caught my eye. Jake claims to rule Danny's new neighborhood, and in order to earn status and fit in with the locals Danny will have to prove himself to Jake. While the script is nothing short of generic high school hero stuff, the acting is of an unusually high caliber. A Buick Grand National plays a significant role in the film, and is a recurring sight throughout, and there are scenes exhibiting an Oldsmobile 442, Chevrolet Bel Air and Nova, and even the Lil' Red Express 1979 Dodge D150 drag truck. If that is not enough for you then to top it all off the plot line is so dumb 'predictable' would be over complimentary. The only actor who returned for the second movie is the girl who plays Jessica.
As a young boy he learned of racing from his father who later crashed into a wall running 150 and became an alcholic and abandoned him. Hope to see a sequel of some sort! Now this part, movie is low budget as previous one so I didn't expected too much in term of acting and effects. The bad guy has a black 2011 Mustang , I mean common is this what they think as new and original?? Finding a streaming service to buy, rent, download, or view the James Fargo-directed movie via subscription can be tricky, so we here at Moviefone want to do right by you. Born to Race is a 2011 film directed by Alex Ranarivelo that tells the story of Danny Krueger, a troubled young man who wants nothing more in life than to be a race car driver, but has set himself upon a destructive path that involves trouble with his parents, as well as the law. As per usual there is a girl who was with the bad guy and ends up with our hero Who is no Brian Walker no matter how hard they try. Tension soars on and off the track, and a terrible incident leaves Danny without a racing partner. Born 2 Race is about a young teenager named Danny who is in love with street racing.
Also another plus is the final scenes of the movie take place at the race strip, which in my opinion and through out this movie, is trying to get the underlying message that knuckleheads need to start taking this race scene back to the track instead of the streets. This sequel however, was a huge let down. They meet at the Charlotte, N. Shelli Lether, Joe Cortese co-star. The director does show that this rival lives on with the new 5. Danny's dad sells his racing buick the car he won his first race in to pay for the parts Danny's car needs.
Personally I quite liked it but it wasn't as fun as the first film. Yep once again its time to show how rice racers rule, don't believe me? Jake crashes during the race when he revs his car to high and Danny is unable to finish the race stopping to save Jake pulling him out of his car just before it blows up. Just a little something to note, nothing to write home about. Even someone who knows a lot about cars can enjoy it because they apparently had some tech people involved who weren't idiots. It also made it harder to recognise who people were at first. They meet at the Charlotte, N.
Even though the plot was a little predictable, it still came off to be an entertaining independent film. Except those things, movie is not really bad. This Definitely something that does stand out from the other movies by not having just imports or having one single American muscle car. However, I expected same actors and when I saw that they changed all but Jessica and guy that sponsored Danny at the begging of first part before he crashed car I felt very disappointed. If cars aren't your thing then obviously this isn't for you.
Our protagonist can't get to grips with the course and is having trouble blending in. Despite having trouble bonding with the father that left him, Danny decides to ask his father for help entering a drag race, and realizes that the two have more in common than he had originally thought. What makes this movie great is they do use a mixture of Domestic and Import cars. After winning a scholarship to the prestigious Fast Lane Racing Academy, Danny finds himself competing against some of the fiercest young drivers in the world. End of the day its the age old adage. Second thing I didn't liked is story, it is somewhat predictable scenario Danny find opponent like Jake, races with him.
The kid ruins his life and makes a turn around, I'll leave it at that and you can get more from the synopsis. To sum this film up , it lacks the depth and edge that FnF has been giving us for nearly 10 years , the actors are really B Movie standard , the script has come from a template from night school , so to sum it up , it's Diet Fast n Furious because all the good bits have been taken out and what we end up having is a disappointment and it tastes funny. Eventually Danny realizes that putting aside the issues with his father may give him a chance to beat out his rival, and have the career of his dreams. Released 1988, 'Born to Race' stars , , , The R movie has a runtime of about 1 hr 36 min, and received a score of out of 100 on Metacritic, which put together reviews from respected critics. It looks like whole another movie to me.
Set in a high school environment, really good for Teenagers to young adults. Both this franchise and 'Need for Speed' are giving 'The Fast and the Furious' a good run for its money in my view. The camera work is handled well giving all the cars good screen time from various angles, all stunts and driving sequences are real and the racing does get your heart thumping. The class are the most stereotypical bunch of lantern jawed young pretty people this side of a Stephenie Meyer's novel. Shortly after beginning High School in his new town, Danny develops a rivalry with the the town rouge Jake Kendall.
There is a nice selection of cars on show here and there but its mainly a Japanese affair as usual, fine with me being a Jap fan. But word of the engine reaches Vincent Duplain George Kennedy , a crew member under Al's rival, Kenny Landruff Marc Singer. What can I say its all completely unoriginal and amazingly cheesy, we've seen this type of thing a shitzillion times before but it always seems to get rehashed over and over. Where other street racer movies are a complete mess of poor acting and Wikipedia knowledge, Born to Race manages a solid cinema experience for a fraction of the cost of the big boys. After a battle with his father they end up settling the past and rebuilding Danny's car after Jake's father has Danny's brake line cut and Danny crashes.
