Default Mayor Holywood movie with the Astra playing a big roll.

Hey,

I don't know if any of your have seen the movie Vantage Point. I heard things about it, but it still didn't give me the urge to watch it. Well I found it free to stream from Netflix and so I started watching it.

There is a huge car chase with the main character, Dennis Quaid, hijacking the exact same model and color I own--only it being Chevy badged. I was so excited at first, but then the more he banged it up, the more he started to piss me off.

I just thought I point it out for those who didn't know.

Editing: Sorry, I should have done a search before posting this. It seems it has been covered. Won't Happened again.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Draconian - It is funny you mentioned it, just after I purchased the Astra, I saw previews for that movie being aired on out local PPV channels. Since I was watching the TV at the time, I have the DVR going, and I noticed in the chase scene an Astra. So I rewound the DVR and paused it, BAM a Chevy Astra. Not too bad given I spotted that car out at 33 frames per second! Guess I am truely an Astra-nut!

The Astra and the Outlook are also on Ghost Whisperer. I almost didn't notice it as I was too busy looking at Jennifer Love Hewitt, LOL.

The car did look nice in the chase, even after the huge amounts of hits it received. They so fixed it up and changed the bumpers and fenders so it wouldn't look beat up. They also stopped focusing on the messed up side after it first got hit. Movie commercial?
