Critic Reviews for Roadracers
A slick, fast-paced greaser picture that shows off the incredible talent of director Robert Rodriguez.
Rodriguez said that he cast Arquette for the "good sleaze factor." Arquette's constant sneer throughout the film proves that Rodriguez was absolutely right.
Audience Reviews for Roadracers
A greaser picture from the wonderfully eccentric mind of Robert Rodriguez, "Roadracers" is an entertaining and wonderfully unique work from the talented Director. I'm a huge fan of Rodriguez and his gift to make great films despite early budgetary limits are nearly unmatched in the industry. This early work from him takes place in the 50s and feature David Arquette for his sleaze factor, so says Rodriguez. It's entertaining, briskly paced and over the top in places all with Robert Rodriguez's unique look and feel to it. If you are a fan then be sure to check out this early work of his, you won't be disappointed.
David arquette stars in this movie that was orignally made for the tv channel showtime's rebel highway series as a 50's teen haveing to confront his future a bunch of local town thugs whos leader just happens to be the town sheriffs kid and also doesnt like him and his girlfriend. i happened to like this movie alot its cheaply made but has a really great storyline and cast not to mention it was directed by Robert Rodriguez
In the 90s Showtime produced a series of TV movies under the umbrella title "Rebel Highway," in which new talent in front of and behind the camera made new movies inspired by and taking the titles of 50s B-movies. This was the first entry in that series, directed by Robert Rodriguez and starring David Arquette and Salma Hayak. Its a pretty solid film about a rebel taking on a rival and his cop dad, and trying to keep his girl and maybe make it as a musician. It isn't the best movie in the world, but when you look at it as an edgier homage to the B-movies about rebel teens made in the 50s, this is a fine tribute to those pictures.
