Movie review: Million Pound Motors

Finding exotic and rare vintage cars for wealthy clients is big business. Follow along with broker Richard Biddulph and see inside the world of vintage auto brokering.

Richard Biddulph

Richard is a high end auto-broker who seeks out and acquires ridiculously priced vintage cars for his ridiculously wealthy clients. While the cars are interesting we just don't get enough detail about them, instead wasting time on the mistakes of a new salesman. Making matters worse, those who can afford the cars don't seem to appreciate them or even worse, view them simply as an investment. The result is essentially a tease with only a small taste of the cars.

Biddulph was okay, if a bit stuffy at times.

Camera work didn't focus nearly enough on the cars or their details. Being a documentary scenery is somewhat incidental and actually dry in this one. Dialogue was mediocre but natural. Sound was okay.

While cars are interesting, and expensive rare cars even more so, Million Pound Motors felt like it was more about pumping the company than it was about the cars. Car detail and history was somewhat lacking, while ego and impressions were not.

Those who enjoy unique car shows may enjoy this one. Others wanting detail on the cars will be somewhat disappointed.

Nothing here to limit audience age.
