    I wanna watch it, something to do with racing across either the US or the world and it gets a bit pear shaped!

    Just don't know what it's called!

    it is probably cannonball run, but if it wasn't a film and was more a documentary then it would have been http://www.bullrun.com/ which is always fun to watch when it is on

    Cannonball runs were old movies about illegal racing across the us, there were at least a couple of movies, but I can't remember if there were cannonball runs in other countries aswell :confused:

    There's another really old racing movie, about a legal race around the world; The Great Race.
    It's not as cool as the cannonball movies, it's one of those tame/boring/wacky old movies.

    Deathrace 2000 was cool but not what you are describing, that was about the corrupt and violent races run by the prison system, so prison inmates could race to the death for their freedom.

    that was the new deathrace film, the old 1975 classic was totally different, and more about a broken government, that was more anarchistic.

    yes frankenstien was in both, but the stories are different.

    for a start the 1975 version, was run on public roads, where you gained points for running over certain targets (group of old people, for instance)

    where the new one was all contained within a prison site.

    The remake wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be but still a long way from the originals.

    Cannonball Run. Death Race 2000 (staring a very very young Sly Stallone). The Great Race. All awesome. Don't be forgetting old Smokey And The Bandit though ;)
