Quite a few times in the plastic action splat called "Overdrive," characters say to their antagonists some variation of "You must think I'm stupid." Sorry to break it to you, "Overdrive," but all of you is stupid.
The car chases are O.K., but not O.K. enough.
[A] formulaic adolescent male button-pusher ... witless and brainless but not entirely joyless.
Whilst less complex in terms of the story, Overdrive ramps up the action, attempting stunts that would make even the Fast team baulk.
... this derivative film about racing cars is, at least, innocuously entertaining. [Full review in Spanish]
While not a great movie, was quite a bit of fun, and better than any of the "Fast and Furious" movies they've been making for the past decade.
It's definitely not a strong picture, but as brainless, witless junk food cinema goes, director Antonio Negret has a few flashy stunt sequences to share and a few Euro locations to visit.
Too many side characters and too little character development aside, this feature-length car commercial will please petrolheads.
Diehard gear-heads may be appeased by the sight of beautifully restored Bugattis and Alfa Romeos, but those looking for genuine thrills should steer well clear of this under-cranked lemon.
More plot holes than plot, this overly convoluted, deeply stupid Fast and Furious wannabe is crammed with clichés and memorable only when it's laughable.
Overdrive provides just enough crash-and-burn stunt action to satisfy undemanding thrill-seekers, but not much else.
The speed indicator goes from zero to, well, not much higher than that in this Euro-clone that blends the car porn of Gone In 60 Seconds with the multi-vehicle stunt action of the Fast And Furious series.
