Awkward B movie about a futuristic America where cars are outlawed by the totalitarian regime. The protagonist fixed up an old car and began to travel to oppose the dictatorship and the government officials race after him to stop his rebellion. Good intention but terrible executed as an excuse of a film.

Interesting at times but overall dull this car v. plane pseudo-postapocalyptic movie makes eye rolling anti-gub'mint points. It features some interesting scenes, more specifically the showdowns between stars Lee Majors (the six million dollar man) as a rebellious race-car driver in a car-less world and Burgess Meredith as the retired pilot sent to get him.

I like the Last Chase movie, and find it a good watch. The scenes where Lee Majors goes out to the highway from the transportation centre were filmed in Toronto on the Allan Expressway near Yorkdale Mall. It is great to see all the bicycles and people walking down the Allan rather than cars and trucks.
It was obviously a low budget picture with many poor quality action stunts. However the basic story is solid and the movie does make you think about freedoms.
If it had been filmed ten years later even, the special effects could have been more realistic.
But overall the movie is believable and fits into the same category (what ever that is) as the movie Omega Man with Charlton Heston.

Dull, cheesy, never exciting. Try to track the version with MST3K commentary.

Weird "futuristic" movie where Lee Majors tries to escape a tyrannical government by driving the last racecar to California while attempting to avoid their cactus-destroying laser beams. Also, Burgess Meredith plays a burnt-out Vietnam War veteran who doesn't seem to know whose side he's on.

Your Canadian tax dollars hard @ work starring Lee Majors (well there's 6 million dollars right there). In 2001 cars are outlawed & former race car driver Majors tries to break free & drive his Porsche to California w/ weenie social outcast Chris Makepeace in tow. This would have been much better w/out him (like Meatballs & My Bodyguard wouldn't have better films w/ someone else cast) & just been a straight Carploitation flix w/ Majors running west from the government agency & Burgess Meredith trying to gun him down in a fighter jet. Unfortunately the budget is so small you never really get a good confrontation between Porsche & jet (just some cat & mouse) & this special government agency only has 3 people working for it. May have been better if it got a Hollywood budget behind it instead of being caught up in the Canuxploitation moment. Uninteresting character development is poor replacement for hardcore driving action

Ok. It is watchable but it could have been a lot better. It was just boring way too many times.

Helmet-haired Lee Majors teaching why environmentalism and public transport are bad. Kudos for that! I guess they don't make films like this anymore.

Kinda wild, this was made in 1981. Was to take place in 2001. However, you look at the world we are living in now. It's not that far off.

Further, watch all of it, yes it's cheesy, but it will ZAP you in the end.
