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
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really worth your time Jan. 7 2013
By Justified & Ancient - Published on Amazon.com

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another in this genere May 12 2012
By ellison - Published on Amazon.com

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.
