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!

Cannonball blasts forward with great car chases July 1 2009
By Dylan Hansen - Published on
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.

Another in this genere May 12 2012
By ellison - Published on

After a sucess in Death Race 2000 - Special Edition David Carradine returns in a modernday cross-country race from Santa Monica Pier to New York City, it opens with a grim dream sequence. David and another former racecar driver are in a duel to win to earn a spot on the Modern Motors Race Team, Davie as Coy 'Cannonball' Buckman drives a Pontiac Trans Am while his rival has a Dodge Charger, Coy eventually has a Mustang which made me think of the Mustang vs. Charger battle in Bullitt which ends up the same way.

There is a van full of women (one of the gals was also in Deathrace) a Corvette (driven by David's real-life brother) a Pantera, a borrowed Lincoln. Also, Coy has a friend driving an identical Pontiac. A guy flys his Chevy Blazer to New York in an attempt to win the $100,000. Coy's brother bets on Coy to win.

At one point David get to show his Kung Fu: The Complete Series Collection skills in a fight. We are treated to gear shifting, some highway and some backroads. Some CB talk. Coy backs onto a guardrail as a ramp to change a tire as his jackstand was taken. Some engaging situations.

Toward the end some violent deaths in a massive car wreck pile-up.

The Special Features include the theatre movie trailer and TV spots in addition to an interview with David, insightful.

This is your Real Grindhouse Classic! April 17 2009
By The JuRK - Published on
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.

Not really worth your time Jan. 7 2013
By Justified & Ancient - Published on

I'm a big fan of the car chase/road trip cult films from the 1970's, so I thought this film would be worth checking out. I wasn't expecting anything Oscar-worthy or mind-blowing from the script, the dialogue or the plotline, but I was hoping for some decent car chases and/or crashes. I got neither. 'Cannonball Run II' was more enjoyable than this, and HB Halicki's films had better acting and dialogue than this puppy did.

It's only worth seeing to cross off the list. I highly doubt anybody would go back for a second viewing. I sure won't.

Cool cars, crazy storyline March 9 2006
By Paul F. Meyers - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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.
