....i nearly had a seizure with all the freakin` colors. i don`t think my eyes would be able to handle 2 hours & 15 minutes of random flying colors. What a dissapointment, i had my hopes up for this movie all year, but as usual, hollywood effed things up. :(

This looks reaally low budget and crappy, was expecting something ALOT better since it came from the same makers of the `Matrix`.

I guess it doesn`t appeal to many people, but I think it looks enjoyable.
I mean... I liked speedracer. I always have.

I liked the part where he drives the car on his brother laps. You can almost fell the hard-on the actors had while shooting this scene.

Frankly, I dont like movies that are funded by big oil companies.

This movie sucks already. For starters, why the FECK did the teacher with an accent that was blatantly fake say `automobile racing`? No one in England has used the word automobile since 1917, so the writers have obviously never met an English person. Ever. Also, the actual driving seemed to take place in a slightly more futuristic, very cartoon-ish version of Ridge Racer, complete with physically impossible driving, silly cars and more American cheese than a MF-ing war movie!!!!! That`s metaphorical cheese, of course.

I think the only Matrix-esque contribution was the slo-mo. The rest of it is just 5H1TTy kid`s film crap. And there I was thinking it wasn`t going to be that bad. Anyone who wants to see this movie is aged 8 or under and gets dragged in by any advert that`s vaguely persuading. And knows nothing about cars.

An ad says that a life sized Speed Racer (I can`t believe that`s the character`s actual name) car has been built, on Yokohama tyres. Why?

Epic Fail.

Me and my friends are gonna go see Speed Racer on Saturday.... while completely drunk off our gourds.

And THEN, it will be AWESOME.
(Because there`s no way in hell any of us can watch it while sober.)

Honestly, I can see what the Wachowski Brothers were TRYING to do, but I think they failed in trying. I loved Speed Racer as a kid, but lot of the concepts are hard to recreate and pull off well in a movie. Especially a Live-action one.

I think in the end this movie is simply a victim of trying-too-hard syndrome. It tries to please the fans of the classic Speed Racer, and at the same time attempts to appease today`s NASCAR/Burnout generation. It`s impossible to go both ways. The worst part is they try to compensate for the animation->live-action transition by making everything look over the top like freaking Mario Kart.

I think this movie would have been a lot more successful if they went with a more underground feel, like a Futuristic Fast and the Furious. Keep the effects, sure, but take all the colour and the frivolity out of it. The movie looks like everyone was driving drunk on the Royal Rainbow and got into a huge pile-up accident.

Eh, doesn`t look like too much of an improvement of the cartoon.

Ironman was amazing btw.

Oh God, I saw part of the music video: they remixed the theme into hip-hop. :Q DO NOT WANT
This looks more like F-Zero than Speed Racer. (Not that I don`t like F-Zero. A Falcon Punch on the big screen would own.)

A well-animated Speed Racer would be cool, especially if it was as frantic as the show. It always seemed like they were on caffeine/hard drugs.

Someone should upload the Dexter`s Lab version of Speed Racer. :D

I might have liked that when I was 10 years old and drawing cars for the Wacky Races.

Not actually, for the Wacky Races. I wasn`t one of the cartoonists working on it. I mean cars that went in the Wack Races in my imagination.

Eh... crappy production, ridiculous plot, pretty dumb characters...

And yet...

It`s so cliche, how can you NOT want to see it? I mean, the actors aren`t half bad, and even though the visuals are kinda crappy, they grow on you. The only reason I want to see it is because it`s Speed Racer for gods sakes! Who doesn`t love Speed Racer!

Go Speed Racer!

It looks wicked to me! The visuals are amazing and I LOVE the style!

YES I used to watch Speed Racer almost religiously as a child.

It IS going to be a lot different but I can separate the film from the cartoon. The plot`s going to be crap but I can deal because it looks so damn pretty.

I just wish Speed Racer looked more like Speed Racer. :[

Hate to double post, but here`s what Rotten Tomatoes had to say: "The Wachowski Brothers have overloaded Speed Racer with headache-inducing special effects, and neglected to develop a coherent storyline."

They agree.

Hated the show even when I was a kid. So no.

Apparently, it was supposed to have the same "feel" as the show. That means they made it to be crap.

well the visuals look fun but its looks i would get bored after 20 minutes of the same poo over and over again. plus, i doubt the plot will be any good if we used to watch the show and know that his brother is actually Racer X, who will be speed`s big rival. also, to quik2thestab, i know matrix 2 and 3 were I am a pretty pretty little girling terrible but the first one makes up for both of them and then some. it doesn`t matter how bad you make the sequels, when you have written and directed the best sci-fi movie ever (this is a scientific fact) then you can always drop that name out there.

They should not have made this movie. And since when did making the Matrix TRILOGY make you good at making movies. The first one was good, but the other two were drating awful.

Its very "cat in the hat" (the movie)... (the BAD movie) meets "wacky races"

I guess i could open my mind to the style of it, if the plot is good. I`m pulling for the W brothers that they havent screwed up one of my childhood memories...
