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.
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 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.
