Product Description

Buckle your seatbelt for the Trans-America Grand Prix, the infamous cross-country road race from Los Angeles to New York City. David Carradine of Kill Bill stars as Coy "Cannonball" Buckman, an ex-con and fallen stock car champ who puts pedal to the metal for one last shot at glory. But competition on the open road is a killer...and Cannonball is the target! Veronica Hamel (Hill Street Blues), Bill McKinney (Deliverance), Gerrit Graham (Phantom Of The Paradise), Mary Woronov (Rock'N'Roll High School), Robert Carradine (Revenge Of The Nerds) and Dick Miller (Gremlins) co-star in this high-speed demolition derby directed by Paul Bartel, co-written by Don Simpson (controversial producer of Bad Boys and The Rock) and featuring wild cameo appearances by Bartel, Simpson, Sylvester Stallone, Martin Scorsese, Roger Corman, Joe Dante, Judy Canova and more.

A cult classic with mediocre acting and undeniably lame plot.. gratuitous accident and trying to be more than it should have ever reached out to be.. but, still entertaining.. go figure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cannonball blasts forward with great car chases July 1 2009
By Dylan Hansen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is by far one of the great car chase movies of all time. And by my count, not many people were able to notice it. Cannonball, the apparent precursor to the comedy movie series "Cannonball Run" stars young David Carridine as Coy "Cannonball" Buckman as he embarks on an illegal trans american race to bring his racing career back. This film has great chase sequences and a good story to back itself up. Cannonball is the perfect popcorn film for any gearhead or action fan. Granted it was made in the 70's and has those 70's style moments, it still is a top-notch car film on par with the classics like "Gone In 60 Seconds" and "Vanishing Point". Buy this movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cool cars, crazy storyline March 9 2006
By Paul F. Meyers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The title about says it all. It makes ya cringe a little watching them beat up the "classics". But as with alot of 70's movies they just put the car on full out and let the cameras roll. You should see it once just for the cars.

2.0 out of 5 stars BIG DISAPPOINTMENT Jan. 13 2014
By Gary L. Dibert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This picture was released on July 6 1976 starring David Carradine as Coy Cannonball Buckman, Bill McKinney as Cade Redman and Veronica Hamel as Linda Maxwell. A former employee rips off his own Death Race 2000 in this mindless car-crash saga, containing more twisted metal than a bombed-out steel mill. The nominal storyline concerns an illegal auto race from Los Angeles to New York that promises the winner 100,000 dollars. Coy "Cannonball" Buckman, is the race leader who drags his girlfriend, Linda along for the ride. Linda is not very happy to be the passenger in this race because she has has a job and a boss to answer too. Cade Redman tools around in a loud red Trans Am, while Cannonball's nemesis barrels along in a big, black Plymouth, trying to outsmart Cannonball at every turn and exit ramp. Things start to go wrong as cars start breaking down and you need money to fix them. The only way to fix them is with your sponsor's money but there's no which means no money. I bought this movie because of Veronica Hamel and she was a big disappointment. Even though this movie had a leading actress her performance was not good so I give this movie 4 weasel stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars but this is probably the worst movie made in that time period July 18 2014
By Dave Dittmar - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I know it was the seventies, but this is probably the worst movie made in that time period.

Spoiler alert **
There is multiple car pile up scene in this movie.
The accident happens on a piece of road that only has drivers with no brakes, because even though the additional cars in this pile up must be able to see smoke and flames from 3 miles back, they just drive into the pile of already burning cars.
Every car in this movie is driving around with explosives in the front bumper, because as soon as they touch anything, they explode. These vehicles could bump into a pile of teddy bears and still go up in flames.
Also, there were a couple of lame fighting scenes. A couple of them were with the guy they chose for the kungfu series. His kicks looked like a third grader at recess.
All in all it was a terrible movie not really worthy of a full star, but it won't allow me to give it a half.
The only way to enjoy this movie is to start it with the idea that it is terrible and watch it just for the comedy of how bad it is.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is your Real Grindhouse Classic! April 17 2009
By The JuRK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Recently I saw Quentin Tarantino's DEATH PROOF and I was disappointed at what a waste of time it was. Lame dialogue, chick power posturing, long stretches of nothing.

CANNONBALL is one of the movies DEATH PROOF was shooting for.

It's on cable right now and I'm struck by how many people were actually in this film. David Carradine, Veronica Hamel, Bill McKinney (forever famous as the deranged hillbilly rapist from DELIVERANCE), Mary Woronov, Gerrit Graham (so funny in USED CARS), Robert Carradine, Belinda Balaski from THE HOWLING, Sylvester Stallone, Dick Miller, Martin Scorsese (yes, you read that right), Paul Bartel (also the director), Carl Gottlieb (JAWS)...quite a line-up for a 70s drive-in movie!

And the cars are awesome.
