Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez (El Mariachi) was a last-minute replacement for Showtime's Rebel series and after the first viewing, his Roadracers was immediately bumped to the top of the list. This melodramatic tale of rebel youth fighting to get out of a dead-end town is often times enjoyable and disturbingly humorous but lacks the break-neck pacing of Rodriguez' other films.

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.More
