What would most action movies be like without an exit plan? And what use would an exit plan be if there were no means of escape?

Movie cars are important features in many genres today. These cars are now in action, sci-fi, adventure and even horror movies. They come from outer space, some are found in junkyards, sometimes they are assembled in a high-tech factory or a simple garage.
