Customer Reviews:

  • The coolest movie ever that nobody's seen
    ...this is the coolest movie ever-just for the small stuff and the little details. Dude Delaney is the epitome of cool. The underlying meanings beneath the meaningless story contain the rules of everything cool. It's more than a movie - it's a subtle masterpiece worthy of multiple studious watchings....more info
  • Action-packed, Rebel-rousin' fun!!
    This is the greatest 50's rebel movie ever made! Roadracers is so cool it puts Rebel Without A Cause to shame! Outstanding performances by all cast members, a killer soundtrack featuring Link Wray, and flawless direction by Robert Rodriguez make this an instant classic. See this now!!!...more info
  • One of the Greatest, Fun Movies
    This wasn't a movie to change your mind or broaden your horizons. This was a great butt-whoopin of a good time! Robert Rodriguez is my all time favorite hero of a director, and I can't do anything but be wowed by his movies.......more info
  • Greasy rockabilly flick with a killer soundtrack!
    This is truly one othe greatest rockabilly 50's type films that I have ever seen. A monster soundtrack featuring Hasil Adkins, Charlie Feathers and Johnny Reno. David Arquette plays the perfect greaser and Selma Hayek is the perfect gal! Mean ol' cops and plenty of 50's style gang motif will draw all of the cats out of the barn!...more info
  • Great soundtrack, relentless action,lousy hot rods
    I dug this flik from the get-go. Killer soundtrack & bitchin' camerawork. Arquette makes up for those lousy phone commercials he does. Salma rocks. The styling was weak; and a 55 chevy highboy and mommy's T-bird are NOT hot rods. But worth watching......more info
  • agree: the coolest movie ever that nobody's seen
    Even if this movie was made for TV it should have been released for the big screen. As it is nobody seems to know this gem. Insanely great music, Johnny Reno's My Mistake alone worth the price of the tape. Great characters like the Nixer and Dude. This movie has major cult potential if only people knew about it....more info

  • Raw Talent
    Robert Rodriguez shows the masses of raw directing talent he has in this made for TV movie. The directing is energetic and stylish and even more impressive when you realise that it was shot in only 13 days! On top of this Rodriguez also wrote and directed this mini masterpiece. A brilliant homage to the 50's drive in teenage angst rock and roll movies. It succeeds where Walter Hill failed with "Streets of Fire". David Arquette is perfect as Dude but Nixer, played by John Hawkes, is a scene stealer as the geeky guy we all knew in high school....more info

  • One of the Coolest Indie Films of All Time
    I've watched Roadracers so many times. Working at a video store, we got the demo tape for the movie. I've never found it anywhere else. This movie needs to be released to the public because it is one of Rob's best films. The music, the cinematography and that '50s rebel style make this movie an Indie classic. Do whatever you have to do in order to see this movie. You won't be disappointed....more info
  • Very cool stuff
    Robert Rodriguez hits every corner with this ultra-cool sendup of '50's rebel movies. Cheap without looking cheap (except where Rodriguez intended it), this film is alternately chilling and hilarous. You can never tell when or where some totally outrageous sight-gag or outlandish bit of sarcasm will turn up, even at the most "serious" moments. Truly off-the-wall....more info
  • The coolest movie ever that nobody's seen
    Hey, I'm Dugg from Baltimore- this is the coolest movie ever-just for the small stuff and the little details. Dude Delaney is the epitome of cool. The underlying meanings beneath the meaningless story contain the rules of everything cool. It's more than a movie - it's a subtle masterpiece worthy of multiple studious watchings....more info
  • Screechin' rubber & Rockabilly!
    This is a killer flick that has David Arquette set as a rockabilly tough guy. His performance is great! He does an awesome job as a 50's greaser icon and looks the part! Selma Hayek plays his sensual Mexican girlfriend.

    The movie has a weird atmosphere, where you know it's supposed to be the 50's, but the styling is a bit weak. Especially weak is the arch enemy, who has long greased hair!!! Overall a really cool movie, Robert Rodriguez's 1st movie after El Mariachi. Cool to see what he did with 13 days and a 1 million dollar budget!...more info

  • THIS MOVIE IS AWESOME!
    Robert Rodriguez shows us that you don't need a fourtune, a major studio, or big name stars to make a memorable and utterly stunning film of this caliber. Rob goes for the rebel in all of us with this effective script and his signature WHAM BAM style of filming and editing. Rob gives us a great American masterpiece with a solid story and incredably on-the-point acting from Arquette and the rest of the cast. Most memorable are the fight scenes with the pounding LINK WRAY music that I can't seem to find in any record store! Look out for the ketchup bottle!...more info
  • Great JD Hommage - Nonstop Fun
    I have seen this movie more than ten times and I never tire of watching it. It's got everything: humor, action, romance, Blaise Pascal's pensees (remember Nixer's French Fry/Human Condition analogy), and most of all, red hot rock and roll music. Rodriguez's films were lost on me after El Mariachi, but this little gem I cannot praise highly enough. Anyone looking for the songs from the film, check with Norton Records (their 1980s re-issue covers are all over Dude's garage)....more info
