    Pretty bad all around

    My Thoughts: It was a pretty boring episode. I thought the cop was a cool character but the guy Brad Pitt played and the cops daughter both annoyed me throughout this episode. The story was corny and the acting wasn't too good, this episode sucked but it could have been worse.

    Gore - There isn't very much gore aside from the last car crash at the end. There is a cool explosion though.

    Fear - Not scary at all, had kind of a 'thriller' element when the crazy guy abducted and threatened the cops daughter.

    Story - A crazy drag racer/enthusiast stalks a legend street racer who is now a cop who the crazy guy wants to race. The cop used to go by the name 'Icemen' and denies being the Iceman. The crazy guy bags the Iceman's daughter and uses her as bait to force the Iceman to race him which he ends up doing to save his daughter. Unique -
