Movie Info

Shot documentary-style, with highly mobile cameras, fast hand-held filming, and lightning-speed cutting, Streets of Legend challenges The Fast and the Furious and Torque as the most cutthroat, edge-of-your-seat racing film. Director Joey Curtis directed the motion picture illegally, using authentic drag racers as his actors, and thus had to discreetly film sub-rasa. Starring Robert Beaumont, Brihannia Hernandez, Victor Larios and Greg Leone, the central story involves two southern California teens who plunge deeply into their community's multi-ethnic street racing subculture and ultimately attempt to break out of the "crash and burn lifestyle" by competing against each other via drag racing championships.

Critic Reviews for Streets of Legend

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

Slightly overlong effort is full of striking, fresh visual interludes showing cars, speed and the sensations surrounding the scene.

Imagine Vin Diesel and Paul Walker's street-racing saga The Fast and the Furious transformed into a lyrical, stylized romantic tragedy and one would have some idea of what Joey Curtis' unsparing yet beguiling Streets of Legend is like.

Top Critic

An overly melodramatic romantic triangle ensues ... all of which takes a back seat to the more exciting scenes of roadsters buzzing along the 10 at speeds of 140 mph.

Top Critic

It's more muscle than high-formula, and it clanks, sputters and spins out in its pedal-to-the-story medal style.

Top Critic

Neither fast nor furious.

Interspersed are several aptly named drag races, completely devoid of dramatic substance, that are seemingly inserted into the script solely to show off helmer Joey Curtis' experiments with high-definition video.
