Newt's movie review

It's a slow movie about fast cars and freedom. It was dark and brooding and a little too slow, but it managed to get the point of freedom and abandon across rather well.

There certainly wasn't too much dialogue to get hung up on. Our heroes barely speak throughout the film, and their habitual liar nemesis rarely shuts up.

Can't recommend it.
