Is It Any Good?

This is a decent, if at times gratuitous, action movie. Centauro is centered on an aspiring professional motorcycle racer who puts his dreams in jeopardy to save his ex-lover/mother of his son from a drug cartel. While it's safe to say that, like somewhat similar movies that have the words "fast" and "furious" in their titles, the motorcycles and high-end sports cars doing the racing and chasing are the only aspect of the movie not fueled by testosterone, the dialogue is much better than those movies, and the female leads usually do a good job of counterbalancing all the obligatory alpha male posturing.

In other words: There are actually shades and nuances of character depth and development. There's as much of a focus on the story as there is on effectively capturing all the top-speed chases. That alone makes it more enjoyable than all the movies featuring muscle-dudes who drive fast and grunt loud in the hopes that this style will outweigh the lack of substance. It's not a masterpiece, but Centauro knows what it is and makes the most of it.
