and plenty of thrills
are packed into the adrenalin-fuelled Go Fast as drug traffickers in high-
speed power boats and cars zoom
across the Mediterranean sea from
Morocco to Spain and on to France
with the Law hard on their heel...
THE AMAZING HI-OCTANE Go Fast erupts onto the screen as a drugs bust
is going down on the streets of Paris, France. A team from the Brigade de Recherche
d'Intervention, lead by Jean-Do Paoli (Olivier Gourmet), is waiting for
Lucien Martinez (Jil Milan) and his associate N'Diaye (Evariste Kayembe-Beya).
Backing up the team is Arabic-speaking Marek (superbly portrayed by Roschdy
Zem), who realises that the apartment used for the stake-out has been compromised.
The team including Marek's best friend and partner is wiped out.
Devastated by his loss, Marek is desperate to get even. His transfer to an elite
squad gives him the chance he has been waiting for. He undergoes the tough training
necessary to get him through and infiltrates the traffickers who are using the
'Go Fast' system having been told that there is a US agent already working
under cover with them.
As Marek slowly gains the trust of the traffickers and strives to keep his identity
secret the drugs arrive at the pick-up point in Spain, via speedboats that race
across the Mediterranean from Morocco. From Malaga, a fleet of high-powered
cars accompany the drugs across the Continent towards France with Marek
behind the wheel of an Audi RS4 and a sassy woman driving a Porsche 911 Turbo.
Roaring along motorways with the scenery disappearing behind them, the dealers
reach break-neck speeds and pull such daring stunts as they weave in and out
of the traffic at distances too close for comfort that the police have no chance
of catching up.
Keeping the pedal pressed to the metal and stopping for nothing, these dangerous
manoeuvres are nothing compared with the fate that awaits Marek if his cover
is blown. But has he taken one chance too many?
From the stunt team behind the Transporter franchise, Go Fast
is an adrenalin-fuelled, no-holds-barred trip that drops you right into the
heart of the trafficking crime lords and leaves you breathless a dangerous
world of fast cars, hot girls, smoking guns, lethal drugs and double-crosses
at every turn. This 'high-speed' cops 'n' robbers catch-me-if-you-dare film
is a must for action fans and thrill seekers alike. With a refreshingly different
kind of hero who definitely walks the walk, Go Fast is non-stop thrills
overlaid with hyper-action. A definite must-see.
