the oh-no! DVD of the week: ‘Fast Lane’

What? You say this looks an awful lot like Fast & Furious? Shame on you! Hollywood doesn’t cheat! Hollywood doesn’t rip off! My goodness, how suspicious-minded you are! A high speed chase on the freeways of Los Angeles reveals a turf war between two competing car theft rings. Lieutenant Baynes (Steven Bauer) decides to send Baby Martinez, a young streetwise cop to infiltrate one of the all-girl crews controlled by Mama (Olivia Brown). Quickly she befriends Eva, a former car thief who teaches her the ropes of ripping rides. Soon enough Baby discovers that the real menace on the streets is Mama s rival, Knight (Anthony Ray Parker) whose desire for dominance will send them spiraling into a turbulent adrenaline packed game where he will stop at nothing to own the streets and eliminate the opposition.
