Lilly and Lana Wachowski bring a classic anime to the big screen: Matthew Fox, John Goodman, Christina Ricci and Susan Sarandon star with Emile Hirsch as Speed Racer! Fearlessly hurtling down the track, careening around, over and through the competition in his thundering Mach 5, Speed Racer was born to race cars. But when Speed turns down a lucrative offer from Royalton Industries, he not only infuriates the company’s maniacal owner but uncovers a terrible secret--some of the biggest races are being fixed by a handful of ruthless moguls! The only way for Speed to save his family’s business and the sport he loves is to beat Royalton at his own game. With the support of his family and his loyal girlfriend, Trixie, Speed teams with his one-time rival the mysterious Racer X to win the race that took his brother, Rex Racer’s, life: the death-defying, cross-country rally known as The Crucible.

    This movie was absolutely an amazing masterpiece! No giant violence like in other high rated movies, but it’s just amazing! Some stuff in here such as swearing is not meant for kids. All in all, it is just awesome!

    Very underrated! Great movie for showing off a new tv too. Great balance between modern and classic tv show. If was too close to source material would be a bad movie. I went in with fair expectations and was so happy. Have watched repeatedly over the years. Hoping for a 4K release soon.
  • Artistic Masterpiece

    If you enjoyed the Wachoski's prior work (or even if you aren’t) and enjoy beautifully crafted motion pictures, this film is a must watch. I don't know what critics look for half the time but I rate movies on how I feel when I watch them and this is one of my favorites. As others have mentions, the performances are excellent, the cinematography is absolutely breathtaking, and there are certainly moments that tug at your heartstrings. Add this to your watchlist.
  • Ahead of it's time!

    It's impossible to fathom how wrong the movie critics were when rating this film. They simply didn't get it!! This move blended live action anime better than anything I've ever seen. If you're a true fan of the orginal Speed Racer series and the Wachowski's, then you'll love this film. The storyline is tight, the characters are well developed, the acting is great, and the visuals are absolutely fantastic!! My kids were addicted to this movie and it was something we would all watch again and again. It's no surprise why it's now considered one of the movie underrated movies ever!! Watch it! You won't be sorry.
  • I love this movie!
