a great French crime caper BUT - Racer and the Jailbird review by sd

Spoiler Alert
12/07/2019

But ruined by white subtitles on a more often than not white or bright back lit/sunny outdoor camera scene..**a black bar at the bottom of the screen would suffice in order to follow the rapid subtitles/dialogue translation/plot.

Don't bother with this if you don't understand French..very disappointing aspect of this potentially great movie !

Clichéd and Boring - Racer and the Jailbird review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
16/07/2019

He’s a bank robber, she’s a racing driver. You don’t need any spoilers to guess the plot. It’s a cliché from start to finish. Maybe it could work if the characters held any interest. They don’t. It might work if the heist or racing scenes were filmed in an interesting way. They aren’t. The English title has replaced the original French title of Le Fidèle to make it sound more exciting. It isn’t. Only someone with the calibre of a Michael Mann could give this any life.
