The Fast and the Furious

forgotten bannerMV5BMTMzMDc3NTQ4MV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwOTI3Njk5__V1_SY317_CR5,0,214,317_Bet you didn’t know that fast and furious was a remake did you?

I mean the original is typical Corman exploitation featuring no one special, but just look at this description from IMDB :

The Fast and the Furious (1955) A man wrongly imprisoned for murder breaks out of jail. He wants to clear his name, but with the police pursuing him, he’s forced to take a beautiful young woman, driving a fast sports car, hostage and slip into a cross-border sports car race to try to make it to Mexico before the police get him

It’s not  a ring of thieves driving Hondas, but it is cops chasing the fugitive in sports cars…..

except the cars aren’t really that sporty….and it looks like they were under cranking  the camera to make them look like they were going fast…..still it’s a trip.  I still see these in the dollar bins and dollar stores. If you spot one, pick it up for the camp value alone.
