Speed Racer

The Wachowski Brothers | 2008 | 135 min | USA

If you're a fan of the original Speed Racer show, interested in watching a great example of cartoon-to-live action adaptation, a lover of stunningly colourful and complex CGI car races, or are a ten year old boy, Speed Racer should be at the top of your list of films to see in a theatre right now.

If you're none of those things, rent Bound and hope the Wachowskis make their second good movie (for you) soon.

I saw this in IMAX and, much like Beowulf 3D, I can't imagine experiencing it any other way.

What an unabashed, kaleidescopic assault on the senses. I appreciated that this film went "all the way" with its vision instead of inserting any unnecessary realism. Thumbs up.

But it's no Bound.
