the plot is thin and, frankly, i didn’t understand the entire premise, but none of that matters. this is about the cars and the car chase that makes up the last 20 or so minutes of the film. the rest is more or less an excuse to get there. the car chase at the end is one of the best in cinema history. it goes throughout the south la region and interrupts people going about their daily business. it’s funny in addition to being action-packed and edge of your seat type stuff. the better car chases allow the drivers to destroy the cars and by the end of this one the car is pretty damn jacked up. also liked that it showed some of the details involved in car theft. like it when heist-type movies in particular decide to show you the nitty gritty details.
