” …I have no idea what Asphalt Burning is really about, who it’s for, what the tone or genre is supposed to be, or why anyone thought it would be acceptable to build the vehicular stunts out of PS2-era computer graphics. Is it intentional? Is the joke that it looks this bad, or that none of the gags or set-pieces work?” Ready Steady Cut!

Asphalt Burning is a burning mess of a movie, one that’s listed as an action-comedy but fails to nail either particularly well. There’s not even that much racing action either. This is not a film to remember and the fact Asphalt Burning manages to make The Fast and the Furious look like Oscar-worthy material is telling unto itself. Avoid.” The Review Geek

” …there’s not a lot interesting going on in Asphalt Burning. The jokes are subpar, the driving has its moments but the races that start and finish the film are subpar and the effects are abysmal. Writers Christopher Grøndahl and Kjetil Indregard, as well as director Hallvard Bræin, just seem to have been going through the motions and it shows. Asphalt Burning is a sad end to what was a fun ride.” Voices from the Balcony
