REDLINE is a campy B movie. There were no advance screenings for the press, and the movie's multi-channel sound made the dialogue hard to hear at the multiplex. This is a problem with many modern movies. Most of all, however, the movie doesn't survive its one-dimensional script, much less all of its foul language and frequent shots of young women in skimpy outfits.

REDLINE is an independent popcorn movie about underground car racing and gambling. In the story, several rich people, including a black music mogul, a successful film director and a shady, crazed multi-millionaire, gamble millions of dollars on fast cars racing one another on the streets or in the desert outside of Las Vegas.
The music mogul promises Natasha, the talented, beautiful daughter of a dead racecar driver a music contract if she can use her racing talents to win a race for him. During the race, however, the crazy millionaire’s driver, his nephew, wins the race but fatally crashes. To pay off a huge debt he owes to a gangster, he kidnaps Natasha and her mother, but Carlo, the brother of the dead nephew, is a war veteran who applies his fighting skills to foil the lunatic uncle’s plans.
