Spin Out (2016/Sony DVD)

Picture: B Sound: C Extras: D Film: B

Billy, Lucy and Sparrow have grown up in the same town and been on a driving team since they were kids and old enough to drive, but after Billy take a stunt to far, Lucy decides she want more to life than demolition derbies, alcohol and wild parties and move to Sidney. Only then does Billy realize how important she is to him and he'll have to pull all the tricks out of his bag to convince her to stay in Tim Ferguson's Spin Out (2016).

The trio (and the rest of their small town) are from a Southern redneck country town where the town sport seems to be off road racing and demolition derby. Every guy is unemployed and the only thing they are good at is drinking and driving (a questionable combination). After Billy almost killing himself in a car stunt (and her) Lucy decides she want more than a Redneck life and there must be more to life than this and to leave town. Only afterwards Billy realize his feelings toward her, now he'll have to man up (and grow up) to see if he can tell his best friend how he feels.

This was a comical romance involving the story of cars, alcohol and young love. It makes fun of Redneck and Southern culture that there is a time for fun, games, and friends ...but there is also a time for growing up. In the end, it is the story of young couples and what they are looking in life isn't as always as far as they think. Amber Samuel, Morgan Griffin, Matilda Brown and Emma Booth star.

The anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1 looks good enough, but the lossy English 5.1 Dolby Digital track has its ups and downs more than it should and can be weak. Extras include trailers.
