New Jersey Drive Movie Review Summary

Actors: Sharron Corley, Gabriel Casseus

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of New Jersey Drive

At the time this movie was made it was the car jacking capital of the world - Newark, New Jersey. Jason (played by Sharron Corley) opens the movie heading off to a juvenile detention center while flashbacks are shown in chronological order. Initially the flashbacks go back to the housing project where he grew up, his friends, and what they enjoy doing most - joyriding. Inevitably they get caught and during this, one of Jason's friends is shot by crooked police officer named Roscoe.

Things continue as normal - carjacking and joyriding, and during one heist Jason is pursued and apprehended by officer Roscoe. He assaults Jason and threatens him not to tell anyone about the shooting. Yet again Jason and his friend Midget (Gabriel Casseus) are pursued by cops including Roscoe again. He seems to have a Vendetta against Jason, who doesn't do much to help himself by doing criminal things and being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Eventually Officer Roscoe suffers his fate, Jason is released from prison and changes his life and Midget passes away.
Best part of story, including ending: I liked how it showed the perils of car jacking, not only with the law, but between friends how it can tear them apart.

Best scene in story: When Midget insults the female police officer.

Opinion about the main character: I disliked the fact that he didn't learn from any of his mistakes and kept getting caught up in the same criminal activity over and over.
