Even if you're not a drag racing fan, Snake & Mongoose is an interesting story of two bitter rivals who work together to become successful and elevate their sport into the national consciousness. Drag racing's ascendancy in the '60s and '70s is shown through televised footage of famous races during that time, as Snake and Mongoose work tirelessly both on and off the race track to try and secure a future for both themselves and the sport they love.

The acting and the direction is solid, and the story is engaging. For drag racing aficionados, this movie should prove especially enjoyable, as the love of drag racing is evident in each scene.
