Spiegel
, Cohn, Welles, and Spielberg are unlikely company for the name of Daniel Sadek, producer of the new auto-themed movie out in theaters called Redline. According to Cinematical's review of the movie, however, this real estate mogul turned producer has bankrolled a movie guided by passion rather than the bottom line.

It certainly won't win an Oscar, but a RAZZIE for Redline is definitely a possibility. While the movie presents no real surprises, no mythic overtones, and nothing goes against type, it also doesn't make any attempt to pretend otherwise. It's a sea of B-listers with hot girls; really fast, really expensive cars; crazy, bored rich people casually risking other people's lives; and tough-yet-good-looking underdog guys who are going to make good.

Yet in real life, a real guy put his real money and his real cars in the service of that celluloid vision. And did we mention that his really fast, really expensive cars spend much of the movie actually going really fast? In fact, Sadek even sacrificed his sacred Enzo for the pic when it was practically destroyed at the hands of actor Eddie Griffin, who plays rap mogul Infamous in the film. If nothing else, Cinematical rates the movie as "agreeably psychotic" -- and who doesn't want to say hello to that?

Apparently Sadek even wrote lyrics to some of the score. Even if the movie isn't worthy, the review is. Check it out.

      The only way this movie would be better is to basically tie the whole cast on the hood of each car naked and have a demolition derby race. Whoever still lives and screams the loudest after 1 hour wins.

      Boy, I would pay to see that!

      "The money it took to make this movie and buy that Enzo would have been better spent on Pabst Blue Ribbon and Chicagoland transvestite hookers given the appeal of this film."

      Were you thinking of the movie "Blue Velvet" when you wrote this That movie did have mention of Pabst BR + transvestites. Don't think there was any mention of Chicagoland.

      They destroyed a Carrera GT,Lambo and a Enzo for that (crap)movie,im not going to watch it.

      Because he intentionally destroyed real versions of the limited production Carrera GT and the Enzo (and not fake stunt doubles), I will download this movie and screw the producer of his profits!

      i actually went to see this movie because my car newbie friends wanted to see it so badly. its actually not that bad of a movie if you're a straight man. almost every scene has a nice helping of cleavage and high revving engines. theres no plot really, ok maybe a small plot, which is really stupid and lacks depth, but if you're a straight guy that likes cars and women you can sit through the movie and enjoy seeing the beautiful cars actually being run hard like they were supposed to. there are inaccuracies as well, but 99% of movie watchers wont notice them, but you know the autoblogger's will.

      so basically...if your friends are dragging you along to see it, its not so bad at all, just dont expect it to be the best car movie you've ever seen because its certainly not.

      That is so sad. With the money spent on this they could have remade Cannonball Run. And you know Burt and Dom would have been great, but imagine the Jackie Chan angle you could have played upon. Such a waste.

      I wouldn't go see this movie if the cure for cancer was given away free with the price of admission.

      It looks like a horrible piece of flaming dog sh*t that even a Ferrari-obsessed, pubescent 14 yr. old would could see through.

      The money it took to make this movie and buy that Enzo would have been better spent on Pabst Blue Ribbon and Chicagoland transvestite hookers given the appeal of this film.

      You'd think someone with that much money and business knowledge would have realized this was a poor idea from the beginning...I guess money doesn't buy common sense, or class, or style, or good taste.

      So congrats Sadek. You lost your Enzo, your credibility, tons of respect, and probably quite a bit of cash making the most insignificant piece of film since Gigli. You could have sent disadvantaged kids in the USA to college if you wanted to piss away some of your cash, instead you insulted the American movie-going public with your wonderful artistic ability. May your crappiness live in infamy.
