First let me start by saying I am not a movie critic, but I am a big fan of this movie. This is a movie to enjoy just for fun !!! Filmed in only 2 week's time in the desert outside of Palmdale,Ca. this low budget "B" movie was intended to be a "Movie of the Week". Made back in 67', it was a little racy (no pun intended), for the masses. It has become a cult movie for anyone who loves cars of the late 50's~early 60's. And what makes this movie so good you ask ? Well ,how about, bad acting, so-so plot, bad editing, low budget, Kool cars & Gloria. Did I mention Kool cars & Gloria? Dukes bad-to-the-bone '58 vette still looks as good as when I first saw the movie back in 1968. I still to this day want a straight axle corvette !!! Made in a time when these "Bad Seed Teens" seem mild to today's real life gun toting teen's of today. I believe if this was made into a video game today, teens would spend less time playing video games !! It's that bad in a good way. Sit back, relax & enjoy.The Fast & Furious has nothing on "HOT RODS TO HELLS". If you don't enjoy this movie , well, you probaly won't enjoy the 60's. I wonder why they never gave Elvis a shot at Duke's part? That would have been WAY TOO KOOL !!!! SEE YA DADDY O !
