I liked Speed Zone!!!
13 July 2000 | by G-CrusherSee all my reviews

I thought Speed Zone was an excellent film to watch. I keep watching this film again and again. This movie has comedy, cool chase scenes, hot cars, and famous actors. I believe this film was one of the best I've seen in a long time and I encourage people to see this film.
