4.0 out of 5 stars At last, a great movie on dvd! 23 July 2009
At last, after waiting several years, Universal released one of my favorite hot rod movies, the California Kid. Build by Pete & Jake in the 80's, the 34 Ford seen in this movie released a new never seen before wave in the hot rod world. And thanks to Martin Sheen, who brings out the 'rebel' in the hot rod against the cop who tries to kill people, again, this is what hot rodding was all about in the early forties and fifties. Great scenery, good cast, shame that there aren't any extra's, but it was worth the wait!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Sheen Hot Rod Movie 20 Feb 2010
If you like 70s road movies this is a must-not exactly a road movie as it's based in one small California town where Martin Sheen turns up with a James Dean look and a real cool car to search for the guy who killed his brother-ie the bad sheriff who deals with highway speeders in a serious way! Full of car chases,great mountain vistas and starring Sheen, Vic Morrow, a young Nick Nolte & Mammas & the Papas beauty Michelle Phillips this is one of the best TV movies ever made & is a real forgotten gem. The print is superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Film 30 Sep 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an old film but we have never seen it so i thought i would order it from the US and it arrived pritty quick but like a lot of dvds from the US arrive in a plastic srinkwrap bag that has no protection at all most of the dvd cases arrive smashed or cracked. But the film it's self was great we thought and as i like any film with flash cars in this was right up my street.

4.0 out of 5 stars 57 Plymouth Belvedere vs 34 Ford Hot Rod Coupe 5 April 2014
By A. McGrath TOP 1000 REVIEWER
The time, 50s America, the place, small town Clarksburg CA. Here, Sheriff Roy Childress, embittered by the death of his wife and child by a hit and run driver, pursues and distributes his own form of justice to speeding motorists. His version however, often takes the form of driving the offenders off the road and down the side of a cliff to their deaths. One unlucky miscreant who pays with his life, is Don McCord, kid brother to Michael (Martin Sheen). Angry and vengeful, Michael returns to even the score.

There's not much dialogue from the cast of familiar faces. Sheen, Nolte, Vic Morrow and Stuart Margolin ("Angel" - from the Rockford Files). In fact there's just enough to tell the story. Is that a problem though? Not really, because the most important stars are the Plymouth (which could be mistaken for a Fury), the Ford and all of the other fifties chrome. (Incidentally, it you haven't already seen it, try Christine for the best Plymouth Fury ever!)

Watching it, the film has the feel of a TV Movie, and not the raw style of say, Two-Lane Blacktop or Vanishing Point but it's still a worthwhile addition to any petrolhead's collection, especially if you're into the 50's US Car Scene.

I won't spoil the ending by revealing the outcome but it's worth waiting for and provides a worthy finale.
