Burnout (1979)

No this movie is not about pot-heads. Its about drag racers and it is one of the most boring movies I have ever sat through. For 90 minutes we are forced to watch guys in shinny suits and helmets race their nitro burning funny cars and there is nothing entertaining about it. Each race lasts from anywhere between lets say 5 and 8 seconds and the rest of the time we are watching the racers burn rubber or Burnout as the title says.
There is one of the smallest subplot's going on in here and its about a spoiled brat who's rich daddy wants him to take over the family business. The spoiled brat wants to be a drag racer and that's what he becomes.
Please don't make the same mistake as me. Avoid this movie at all costs.


  1. Its from Crown International Pictures. It is availible on the Savage Cinema boxset. I don't know if you will be able to find a new dvd print of this thing alone. Your best bet is to just buy the Savage Cinema set. There are some good movies on it and the set only cost about $5.00.
