I'm on the other side of this. Aside from not really liking who they cast as Speed, I think it looks like it's going be a good flick.

why does Speed drive a Mach 5 and a Mach 6? way to spoil the movie via trailer WB.

Isnt one of those Wachowskis a woman now?
The visuals and stuff looked good which usually mean the movie is going to suck

They hired two different actors to be Rex Racer/Racer X...gonna suck unless Rex is 17 something when he leaves and is 30 something as Racer X...

Looks like that's what they're going for . . . expect they forgot that two actors playing the same person should look at least a little bit like each other.

this is supposed to be a more kid-oriented movie, guys. this isn't another Matrix or V for Vendetta. the Watchowskis themselves stated that they wanted to make a movie their kids could watch (that is, if one of them actually still can produce children, what with the allllleged sex change and all) and it's based on an anime and animes are known for their crazy-ass visual style.

Well this pile of shit is almost ready for release. Any hopes that this isn't gonna suck monkey balls? It look like an entire fucking movie of podracing.

What i dont like is the uniqueness of the Mach 5 seems to be left out what with the Buzz saw fighting something off of some other car during one of the racing scenes unless of course the other car is Racer X's then i'll never mind its fucking Speed Racer.

I guess you had to be a fan of the cartoon to think this movie looks good. I never cared for the cartoon and the movie looks even worse. But for the people who were a fan I hope you enjoy it.

I must be a douche. I'm really looking forward to this. I loved the cartoon growing up and from the trailers I've seen I already love colors, the style and the look. It's almost like they've accomplished the cheesy 80s anime in live action / CGI.

It looks like it's going to be a good 90 min escape.

I liked the cartoon a lot as a kid but I don’t have any real interest in watching the movie now. However, having said that my buddy said that this is all his kid and his friends (2nd grade) have been talking about so I have a feeling it is going to do extremely well at the box office.
