Asphalt Wars


Picture: C     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Film: D



In the 1960s and 1970s, Roger Corman was capable of amusing, entertaining films on a low budget, especially with cars.  However, he has become a very bored producer and Asphalt Wars with its Latino cast is terrible and one of his lamest cash-ins yet.  It wants to be Fast & Furious and actually manages to be worse than the John Singleton sequel; a major achievement in garbage.  To make car racing boring is something, but writer/director Henry Crum does just this and the result is this turkey.


The 1.33 X 1 image is awful and adds to what a mess this is.  The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is really a badly processed simple stereo track with all kinds of limits and other problems.  There are no extras and how could there be, this release gives the term “basic DVD” a bad name.
