Like the cult Getaway in Stockholm series, Highway takes high-powered performance vehicles and races them around Stockholm. The major difference is that they actively taunt and outrun the police. There’s no dialogue, this is a documentary about speed, unfettered and illegal through the highways of Sweden.
There are two Audi cars, a RS6 wagon and a RS4. The two essentially embarrass Sweden’s finest. There are a myriad of super bikes too. They tear through traffic, weaving and into oncoming traffic. There’s one sequence where a bike reaches an insane 299 km/hr or 186 miles/hr.
Red Audi RS4 challenges an unmarked police car.
Yamaha YZF R1 goes on rampage through the tunnels and streets of Stockholm. The bike squeezes through spots at breakneck speeds.
Yamaha YZF R6 leaves a massive smoke trail in front of the palace.
Black Audi RS6 challenges half a dozen police cars to stop him.
Yamaha YZF RI tries to reach 300 km/hr
Like the Bomb Berlin series, this is guerrilla film about an illegal act. It speaks to the ease of making and distributing any film. The film is about 45 minutes long with the last 15 minutes showing what these drivers and riders are likely doing in their day jobs. It’s a big montage and if you used common sense, you won’t be surprised that they’re professional drivers and riders! The Swedish police must need to catch these guys in the act of speeding, because the last bit of the video pretty much implicates them.
These type of illegal documentaries aren’t very entertaining for non speed fans but Highway was more suspenseful than any of the Getaway films. The last 15 minutes was a bit of a waste though.
This film is pretty badassed, there aren’t any trailers or even an IMDb page.
