Snake & Mongoose The Movie
Many of us Drag Racers in the UK don't get to see movie's of iconic drag racers. Well that may just be all changing, Entertainment Universe directed by Wayne Holloway, is the compelling true story the 2 most well known people in USA Drag Racing History, Don "The Snake" Prudhomme, played by Jesse Williams & Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen Played by Richard Blake.
It's not often we see Hot Rod movies released, or drag racing ones for that matter made for us the petrol heads of our little community, but this has to be the movie of the century and all the people going to watch "Rush" will be itching to get their hands on this movie.
This movie is a pure one of a kind, with the old school original footage of 'The Snake & The Mongoose' side by side, tied in with the excellent portray of actor's re-enacting the real story of these true one of a kind racer's in the fight of being rivals on the track, friends and business partners off. Don & Tom formed the Wildlife Racing and with that, would change the way Drag Racing would be looked on forever with the brainwork of Don & Tom with Hot wheels toy cars.
This however is as a main part of what starts the story, of the two up and coming drag racers. The truth of all of this, is this is a true story, family life, earning a living on drag strips suffering from financial strain & living on the edge of the quarter mile drag strip, the rival, the fun and the unknown of living life on the edge.
