Hot Cars Reviews:

I seem to have a soft spot in my heart or head for B films of the 30's thru the 50's. I like their quick pacing, attention to the storyline line, the actors who for the most part are virtually unknown. Hot Cars, if it is known at all today lives on because of the lobby cards featuring the beautiful, and, talented Joi Lansing. This is a really nice film though with nice performances by John Bromfield and Joi Lansing. Of course wherever Joi is there is delicious eye candy but create no mistake about it, Joi was a very nice actress. This film gives her a bigger role than just walking across the back drop. It's a true shame she didn't receive better roles. John Bromfield is an ideal actor for the role of Nickname Dunn who is caught in the middle of the hot vehicle scam. The helping cast works along with these two stars to form a cohesive ensemble. Something you don't everytime receive in the "Bigger" movies. OK, it's not a lavish film with a large budget and razzle dazzle unique effects. Just a gripping storyline said in a late film-noirish manner. The actors create you care about what is event on screen in a most convincing manner. This is a true gem! See it if you can. It needs to be released on DVD.


"Hot Cars" will never be seen as a classic, but it is well worth seeing--especially by young movie makers who need a lesson on how to create a nice movie with practically no budget. So, despite its shortcomings, the movie is now better than you'd expect--much better."Hot Cars" stars John Bromfield--a guy you probably never heard of and had several possibilities to star in films. Yet, surprisingly, he did a great job testing an honest boy who is, through circumstances, pulled into a globe of crime. You see, his son is very sick (the exact disease is never mentioned) and he's just lost one job as a used vehicle salesman because he was just too honest. When he's offered what seems like a unbelievable job with a unbelievable boss, he's excited. But the excitement is short-lived. It seems the company makes cash by purchasing and selling stolen vehicles and then altering them to avoid detection. At first Bromfield is mad and appalled, so he quits. But, when he learns from his wife that they need cash to receive the child treatment required to survive, he reluctantly agrees to go back to this job. The cash is perfect and he's able to live with his conscience, but things are closing in on him...and fast! Can he somehow create it through this sleazy business and come out unscathed? Watch this well-crafted and interesting movie to search out for yourself.If you like movie noir, you'll probably like this, but I would consider it 'noir-lite'--not as dark and without the style you'd really expect from movie noir but still having some of the elements of this gritty genre. If you don't, you still can't support but respect what these people did with so tiny at their disposal. Nice.


Are you somewhere around 50 years old or older? If so, then you might play this short, simple, black-and-white production as a nostalgic blast from the past as much as I did. As a bonus, if you are into vehicles like I am, there are some great classic vehicles in helping roles. A definite disappointment though is that the cover art has absolutely, totally, nothing to do with the movie itself. Nobody like those girls on the movie's thumbnail illustration is now in the movie--the picture was obviously just chosen to pique prurient interest, which was exactly why I place it in my queue. Really deceptive marketing, but it worked like a charm on me.
