In 2011, Universal Studios unleashed the fifth movie in the well-known Fast & Furious film franchise. That film is Fast Five. However, the Asylum, a well-known American producer of mockbusters and B-movies, released a mockbuster of this movie and parts of the Fast & Furious franchise itself. That mockbuster is known as 200mph.

The film was released on April 26, 2011, exactly three days before the release of Fast Five, and 11 days after the film's premiere in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Like many of the Asylum's mockbusters, 200mph was made with a budget of just $200,000, nearly a quarter of $1,000,000.

The film's plot is almost similar; being about a deadly street race and all that. The cars primarily used in the film were a 1988 Mazda RX-7 and a 1988 Nissan 240sx. The film was released on DVD and Blu-Ray, and was also available on Video On Demand. It was also made available on websites such as Amazon, Blockbuster, and iTunes.

The film received mixed reviews from many critics, but, like many of the Asylum's films, it received mostly negative reviews from internet users and film geeks. The film had some good CGI (I think; I haven't seen the movie), but many critics said that there were points in which cussing and nudity/sexual references were unnecessary. Some critics also cited the production's poor quality and somewhat similar plot to that of Fast Five.

Nevertheless, 200mph might become a cult classic if shown on the possible television reboot of Mystery Science Theater 3000. I would also bet that many of the Asylum's mockbusters might get shown on there, too.


What are your thoughts on 200mph?
