♥ Freaking amazing movie. Just got back from seeing it--caught the first showing of it at my cinema. It was amazing--Emile portrayed him amazingly~

Honestly, the visual effects were absolutely fabulous. You could get seizure's from how bright the effects were. It was amazing. Emile did a fabulous job, and this is totally irreverent but his hair was like perfect, haha. Ricci was adorable as Trixie, her moments with Emile were hilarious and cheesy, and I loved every moment. Their kiss at the end got a big long loud 'OOooooO" from the crowd. Some parts were a bit displeasing and weren't necessary. Speed's littler brother *name escapes me* was HILARIOUS. When all the karate scenes popped up he was the best thing ever. I loved how everyone knew karate, and I couldn't get over the karate fighting scenes. And the chimp! Ugh, I loved him too. :] The whole X-racer thing was so obvious even without watching the old series. Although, Michael Fox/Scott Porter was the coolest dude by far throughout that the movie. He has the best 'serious' face. So let me get this straight. You fake your own death. You watch your own funeral. You get plastic surgery. Join the F.B.I and you end up looking as cool as Michael Fox? I'm in. :] I loved the whole memory recap in the end while speed racer is winning the race. Very inspirational. Almost made me cry (haha not really but it was beautiful).

This is the worst review ever. But I loved the movie. Even with a theater full of 4 year old boys. I'd recommend seeing it, to every age. Not that you wouldn't have already because of Emile. ;]

I read a few reviews discussing the movie and majority said that the film was something only the Wachowski brothers would like, but I have to completely disagree. It was so much fun! The theater was packed and the race scenes honestly put me on the edge of my seat. The little brother was hilarious too! I loved it! It def. isn't just for little boys. A lot of the fathers in the theater were loving it as well and cheering Speed on. I don't think the old adult reviewers liked it because they don't have an inner child in them. I though it was well done and so cute! Sure, sometimes the graphics looked a little....bad, but for the most part everything was pretty cool! It looked like a huge bag of skittles & was very funny. :)

I loved the movie, I thought the FXs were amazing, and I thought it was quite funny. My fav character was the little brother and chim chim lol. The only thing that I was disappointed with was the lack of people who showed up. There was only 9 people in the theatre to see Speed Racer for the 10pm show on opening night.

movie was AMAZING. Spritle was hilarious! Christina Ricci was perfect as Trixie and Emile was FANTASTIC as Speed.

The race sequences were superb and the entire movie was fantastically edited. I want to watch it again :D
