Charlie Sheen, Sherilyn Fenn, Randy Quaid and Nick Cassavetes do battle with making sense as The Wraith and vengeance storm Arizona.
This movie is sweet. It's a real brainbuster as to why this isn't a more widely known film. If you were born as a male from 1975-1985 and you had seen this film at about the age of 11, it would have easily been your favorite film. Its got everything you could want: sweet cars, racing, cool guys, explosions, boobs, and a sprinkling of some magic baloney. We can only figure that because there's 4 sets of boobs in it that most parents wouldn't let their children see it. Well guess what, now we're all adults and this movie should be a big deal. If you haven't seen this, stop what you're doing and go watch it. It's for you.
Chaz plays Jake Kesey or The Wraith (or is the Dodge M4S The Wraith?) who is, as near as we can tell, a ghost of vengeance that is from the future. He could also be a reborn star (the cosmos kind) who has formed itself into a handsome charming guy. Either way, he's a dead guy who comes back to get vengeance on the gang of nutsacks who murdered him (three times) and stole his babe (Sherilyn Fenn).
His plan for revenge is simple. Step 1) Contact Chrysler and have them build a super sweet car. Step 2) Give said car super powers such as cloaking, super strength, ludicrous speed, some electricity effects, and space flight. Step 3) Travel into the future and buy some racing outfit from the motorcycle store....oh and a future shotgun. Step 4) Race bad guys to death. Step 5) Get babe back.
This plan works quite well as The Wraith picks each bad guy off one by one (except Skank and Gutterboy who are never apart) and then rides off into the moonset with Fenn. On the way he makes sure to explode every one of the bad guys - really. They all die in huge explosions and balls of fire. It's fantastic. He also manages to take the time to go on some dates with Fenn including a motorcycle chase, some hot springs makeouts (with bonus Tarzan boob), and hanging out at the local burger joint. It doesn't hurt that Jake Kesey returns from death in a much more handsome and charming form who gets all the ladies. I'm not sure that I would do it any differently.
We really can't praise this film enough and highly recommend it.
