Worth a Look!
19 November 2014 | by AussieTasticSee all my reviews

Firstly, this movie came to me in a DVD compilation pack of 10 movies, categorized as a comedy collection. Now, you would have to be drawing a long bow to think of this movie as a comedy, although there are one... or maybe two funny parts. Despite this, I think the movie was O.K. .... get it! .... O.K. Garage .... O.K. .... Awwww...never mind! lol

I have to admit that I did not have the DVD cover and a title "All Revved Up" to give any false "Fast and Furious" expectations, as commented by others. However, what I did find was indeed a quirky, offbeat, romantic type drama, which to me rings true. Having worked in the automotive repair industry when I was younger, similar type behavior and meeting some quirky people was not uncommon in some workshops and this movie has helped me relive some suppressed nightmares.

The movie itself is no blockbuster with crazy car chases and huge explosions or lashings of CGI, but what it does give is a relatively accurate representation of what could be real life situations in the daily grind of life, with everyone playing their parts really well. While the only character I didn't like was Louis (Richard Bright), I felt the character was a little over the top and not quite believable, but necessary I suppose for his part in the story.

All in all not a movie for everyone maybe, but worth a look.

I think it is O.K. (-;
