In the Red

In the Red (Glenn Ruehland, 1999) aka Red Lined; Damian Bradford, Allison Cratchley, Terry Serio; revhead action

This is the only film directed by a guy who normally works as a stuntman, so it's no surprise much of it involves danger and destruction; the lead actor is more usually a stuntman also. There's a story of sorts, but the film is mostly an excuse for burning rubber. Interesting that Terry Serio is the bad guy, whereas in another revhead movie, Running on Empty (John Clark, 1982) he's the hero. Shot in the streets and docks of Sydney, this is a profoundly unsatisfying and unpleasant film.
