Octane Reviews

    A really good film, I found it much better than the average youth film and English social-realism drama. Basically it's a film about youth feeling confined in both the poverty of the English working class and the superficialness of the the upper-class and about love as a possible way out.

    Thursday, May 10, 2012 (2007) Octane THRILLER Low budget, straight to rental film about a rebellious bloke who appears to make a living out of car racing on the streets of the United Kingdom, living with a mentally challenged brother and a hopless unemployed father who is incapable to communicate with his son. He then hooks himself up with a young female teenager even though he already has another relationship whose expecting and demands for him to look for his own flat but sees this other girl instead- cliched love triangle as one can find. Not boring but self-indulgent crap which the events happen conveniently for the star actor. The racing scenes are very controlled since in some some of the racing scenes are slow and was supposed to look like they're going fast but are really going as fast as a mother pushing a baby carriage- it's really that lame. Obviously inspired by the success of "The Fast And The Furious" films but made with a very low budget since none of the expensive cars can be really be wrecked, and only the cheap ones are damaged. Quite bad 1/2 out of 4

    Couldn't suffer through more than 25 minutes of this one. With the title and synopsis, you'd expect a lot more high-speed car action. Sadly, it's so lacking, and the rest of the story is painful to watch. Don't waste your time...
