Catherine Shoard

Bana may not be a star exactly swaddled in ­charisma, but what ­mystique he did have is ­disassembled as comprehensively as that coupe's ­innards.

Time Out

Trevor Johnston

Bana exudes downhome blokeyness throughout, but an hour of this will be enough for most, after which egomania fatigue sets in. Add another star if you’re a petrolhead, two if you really like Eric Bana and cars, three if you’re his mum.

The Independent

Anthony Quinn

This self-directed vanity project shows the actor as a decent bloke who keeps in touch with his old mates from home, but that goodwill is squandered by earnest interviews with fellow petrolheads Jay Leno, Dr Phil and (groan) Jeremy Clarkson.
