This high-speed ode to Roger Corman’s original The Fast and the Furious (1955) has absolutely no right being as entertaining as it is. Sure, it’s one great big ball of stupid, but damn is it fun! Charlie Sheen is wrongfully sentenced to 25 years in prison for armed robbery, so what does he do? What the real Charlie Sheen would do, probably — he kidnaps a millionaire’s hot daughter (Kristy Swanson) in her own cherry red BMW and starts a highway chase that involves an ad-libbing Henry Rollins and every news network trying to outdo each other to get the scoop. The Chase never takes itself seriously, though you get a sense that it wants you to as it criticizes the media and its methods only slightly more subtly than Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers, which would hit theaters about six months later. And yeah, the scene where Charlie and Kristy have sex while he’s driving is kinda hot.
