Red Line is a fast-paced action-thriller film released in 1995, featuring an all-star cast comprising Chad McQueen, Dom DeLuise, Michael Madsen, and Roxana Zal. The storyline of the movie revolves around the character of Jerry, played by McQueen, who is a street racer and mechanic. Jerry is not just any ordinary racer. In fact, he is the man behind 'Redline,' a highly-modified, technologically advanced racing car that has been designed using the latest cutting-edge technology. Jerry's dreams of making a fortune from his racing talents are curtailed after he kills his best friend during an illegal street race.

Following this incident, Jerry finds himself blacklisted from the professional racing world and is forced to focus on making a living as an independent mechanic. However, he still harbors a burning desire to race and compete at the highest levels of the sport, and his opportunity arises when he meets Rachel, played by Zal.

Rachel is an assertive reporter who seeks to expose and bring down the corrupt world of illegal street racing. She persuades Jerry to join forces with her and become her informant by providing her with insider information about the dangerous and illicit racing world. But Jerry's desire to return to the world of racing leads him to suggest that they could work together in a different way; Rachel could pose as a team owner, and they could enter the National Championship races under a new alias using his 'Redline' car.

Initially hesitant, the pair agree to this plan, with 'Redline' becoming a force to reckon with in the championship races as they continue to win each race with flying colors. However, things take a turn for the worse when they become targets of the nefarious forces that control the racing world.

Two corrupt detectives, played by DeLuise and Madsen, are hot on their trail, seeking to protect the interests of the powerful criminal elements financing the illegal racing scene, typified by menacing and brutal overlord of the scene, played by Jan-Michael Vincent.

Jerry and Rachel face several challenges, including technical problems with their car, the increasing aggression from their rivals, and the danger of getting exposed as imposters under increasing pressure as they get closer to the championship final.

However, as they get pushed to the limits and face life-threatening challenges, they both realize that the only way they can succeed is by sticking together and trusting each other. In doing so, they find that they also must confront wider issues of honor, loyalty, and trust with the forces of evil that had targeted them for destruction.

The movie features adrenaline-filled racing scenes, sharp dialogue, and visually stunning action sequences set against the backdrop of the high-octane world of illegal street racing. The film captures the spirit of competitive car racing culture while showcasing the struggles and triumphs of the main characters in their quest to achieve their dreams.

In conclusion, Red Line (1995) is a high-speed, intense film that captures the world of racing with great accuracy while portraying the bravery and determination of the main characters in their journey to success. This thrilling action-packed movie fulfills the expectations of both racing and action movie fans.

Red Line is a 1996 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 42 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.8.
