Deadline Autotheft Review


Weak
I can't tell you how many hours it took me to figure out the strange pedigree of Deadline Autotheft. Here's the story.

Billed on a new DVD with Gone in 60 Seconds 2, Deadline is listed as the third movie in a trilogy of Gone in 60 Seconds movies. Not the 2000 Nicolas Cage movie (which was a remake of these films), a series of films of sorts produced in the 1970s and 1980s. Only director (and producer/writer/star) H.B. Halicki died during the production of Gone in 60 Seconds 2, which was unfinished and never released. So how did Deadline Autotheft come to be? Well, I've never seen the original 60 Seconds, but it appears that Autotheft is just a reissue of that film (and judging by the sideburns, it's gotta be) with a little 1980s footage (from a film called The Junkman) spliced into it.
