Apart from sharing Captain America's name, our freelance writer Steven is also a big fan of moving, history, and geography.

Creating a car movie is a brave move and a double-edged sword. Most people believe that all you have to do is throw in some iconic models such as the Mustang, Supra, Corvette, etc. and there you have it. However it is much more than that, and although USA Transport specializes in car shipping, we love everything associated with cars, and thus we present you some of the worst car movies ever filmed.

The Fate of the Furious

We understand that The Fate of the Furious earned a lot of money and the entire Fast and Furious franchise is probably the most famous car-related movie franchise in the world. Although some early installments lived up to the expectations, as the franchise has grown, they strayed away from their initial theme – cars. The Fate of the Furious did have a lot of cars, but the entire tone of the film changed for the worse. Vin Diesel’s character has been portrayed as the villain, and there were a bunch of explosions, crazy and unrealistic stunts and even submarines. Bigger is not always better, but there is no going back now.


A lot of these movies looked promising before they were premiered, but most of them disappointed. Driven came out in 2001 and back then, it seemed as if it could be another outstanding movie written and produced by Sylvester Stallone. However, Driven didn’t live up to the hype, and some of the critics called it the “worst car film ever made.”

Cars 2

“Cars” is one of the coolest animated films that was launched, but the sequel fell flat. What Pixar managed to capture in the original film, they failed to do that in the sequel. Unfortunately, Cars 2 disappointed mostly because they created a spy thriller storyline, which missed the point completely. The adults who watched the film saw that, but at least the kids have fun watching this movie. Luckily, Cars 3 is back on track.

Gone in 60 Seconds

The movie which is called “Gone in 60 Seconds” came out in 1974 and it is widely appreciated. The 1974 film was an absolute hit, and it is one of the classics among car movies. However, there was an attempt to do a reboot in 2000, and they failed to capture the magic which made the original famous. Nicholas Cage, who is a terrific actor, just wasn’t right for the part.


If you want to be on the edge of your seat all the time and watch some of the greatest car chase scenes, you should watch Mad Max 2, if you haven’t already. Mad Max 2 is an iconic car movie that takes place world after a nuclear disaster with the humanity at the edge. The characters are great, the cars too and the action scenes as well as the non-action ones. What else can you ask for?
Choosing only five movies was slightly difficult, but USA Auto Transport hopes that you had fun reading this. In case you are moving to another state and you need more information about car shipping, contact one of the best in business!
