STORYLINE

Midnite Spares  After discovering that a group of car thieves may have something to do with his father’s untimely death, Steve pursues the criminals and attempts to capture them as well as prove his prowess as a racecar driver.

Gone in 60 Seconds, Australian style

Midnite Spares  Like the first ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’, this Australian import is about car thieves. Some nice shots of hot rods and muscle cars from Down-under.

The plot? Steal cars and take them to the ‘Chop Shop’. The first car to get the treatment is a Charger, driven in and cut up for parts. Followed by a hot Ford Fairlane, which gets into a street race. Production values are fair to good. Good movie for automobile fans.

Spare some time, to see this cool Oz midnight flick

What has resulted here, is not a badly made film. I gotta be honest with ya. It’s got a lot more going for it, than the slightly bland, Running On Empty, this one slightly better. Again, centered around fast cars, whatever, I’ve found this pic quite entertaining, and it’s thanks to the characters, bad or good. We got hot chicks, bad cops, mobsters, and a young man looking for his father, a race champion who’s disappeared, where seeing other films with these stories, the inevitability is pretty obvious. where Steve, (Laurie) also a race car driver (and he is good) is out for avengement to take down these baddies. Some of the great moments of the films, are from Bruce Spence (Stork) and David Argue, as layabout mechanics. Spence with his towing truck business, farts and loves accidents, as it means more work. Jonathan Coleman is funny as a cringing sleaze bag, racist, lowlife, cafe worker, who is the bad guy’s ears, if wanting info, a sort of middleman, I guess. Even in it’s starting, the film entertains, where it shows how these stolen car rackets work. I don’t know, this film, just really entertained me, where there are a lot of funny moments, and hardly a dull one in the film. Too, Laurie who strikes up a relationship with a Greek cafe girl, (a younger Gia Carides) is copping pressure from her olds as of course, Laurie’s not Greek. The scene where the whole street of Greeks, watch Laurie drive off with Carides is an unforgettable one, as is the single line of dialogue which follows from each of the youngsters. The rock track “Love Is The Law” is awesome. This is just a livelier car stealing movie, which even has a nice little strip scene, just for the bad guys, which is a diversion, like this film might be, if happening to catch it.
