I've been in Northern VA this week and decided to watch a movie this afternoon but wanted to wait to watch Ironman and Prince Caspian with my kids when I return from my business trip. I decided to watch Speed Racer. My brothers and I used to enjoy watching this TV show when I was a boy. We used to enjoy making fun of it too with the really fast dialogue and Speed's constant "Oh!" whenever he was in trouble driving. We always thought is was funny that Speed and his family were too dumb to figure out that Racer X was really Speed's brother Rex Racer. I didn't really expect a lot out of the movie except nostalgia. I was blown away. It was so well done. The plot was really pretty good and you wanted to cheer for Speed at the end. The driving scenes were incredible and some of the scenes were hilarious. The kid that played Spridel was really funny and added some great moments. Spridel and Chim chim were always the annoying comic relief in the cartoon but the kid was really funny in this movie. The directing of this movie was masterful too in the way they shot camera angles and made it really cartoon like. With all the bright colors and action, I'm certain my kids will love this movie and it's the kind of movie I could watch over and over again. There really wasn't much objectionable material except for a scene in which one of the commentators utters an obscenity that is bleeped out. There is some blasphemy but it is not rampant.
