I would like to say thank you for making an awsome muscle car movie
I'm a writer of childrens stories and it is wonderful to see a film
I think it is most important to understand what a movie is trying to be before you can decide how well it accomplishes that. This movie, I think, is portraying a slice of American life that many people have never experienced first-hand. But for those who are intimately familiar with the car culture, particularly muscle cars of the Mopar varieties, this is an outstanding movie, and could serve easily to help enlighten our friends and family who do not fully understand or appreciate our passion for these vehicles and the way of life they embody.
The film's story plays out far less hokily than the brief plot summary would imply. For a moderate-budget independent film, it is well-executed, with realistic dialogue and sets, and best of all, cars. The cast all seemed like people I either have known or could easily envision knowing in reality. And as one who has owned a '70 Charger for twenty years, I can vouch for the process the characters went through to restore and build up the boy's car, as well as the significance that owners and spectators attach to vehicles of this type.
Certain scenes bear more resemblance to fantasies of gearheads such as myself (i.e. someone giving you a Plymouth Superbird for free) than to reality, and the "departure scene" at the end seemed a bit silly, but honestly these issues don't detract from my enjoyment of the film. This is a fairly clean movie as modern movies go, with minimal foul language and minimal depiction of situations that might have to be explained to your kids.
I've owned this movie for three days and have already watched it twice. I'll probably watch it again tomorrow or the day after. I guess that says all I need to say about how much I enjoy it. If they made a sequel wherein they found the main character's stolen car, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

I was looking for another car movie to add to my collection and found this one.
Just wanted to let you know that we received the second mailed Finish Line DVD today...watched it at lunch time and all I can say is "WOW"!
I was around for most of the scenes in downtown clovis and remember getting a call at 1 or 2 in the am about a drag scene filming.. and promptly rushed out the door! lol. I have very fond memories of participating in/watching the production. I finally got my first chance to view the film and all I can say is WOW.
The emotion and passion behind the film came through in spades. I am a major movie buff, and have seen alot worse movies made for a whole lot more money. And few films have left me feeling as emotional while watching the credits roll like Finsh Line did. As I told a friend of mine, this may be one of the greatest examples on film of a sum truly being greater than its parts. Before viewing the film I was happy to have been a part of it, after viewing it... I'm proud to have been a part of it.
Again, great job on the film, and many many thanks for pushing forward and making it available to those who will truly appreciate the subject :D I will be passing word to any and every gearhead I know :D
