I know its based on a cartoon, but I didn't think the movie would be so cartoonish. It seems like they just had the actors in front of a green screen all day, it feels like they took the easy way out..).

Hilariously bad, or just plain bad. I saw that trailer in the theater tonight, its like the makers of the movie couldn't decide wether to make it realistic, cartoony, or a direct translation of the anime. It looks like they tried to mash it all together. And we know how efforts like that turn out. Plus i really don't like the actor playing Speed (guy from Girl Next Door).

I want to see it now. It looks dumb as hell, but it's got me intrigued. :lol:

And Fifth Element was a pretty decent movie. This will be hilariously bad.
Erm...what I mean is you could cut the Fifth Element to a trailar and make it look awful, making the story seem completely unreasonable and picking out the cheapest effects and costumes. I'm sorta hoping that that's what they've done with Speed Racer here.

I thought he was a decent choice, rather than get a big star to do it that looks nothing like Speed, but then I saw him a little bit in Alpha Dog and he sucked.

Yea I understand what you mean, except I have a feeling that this movie will be exactly like the trailer.
Another example would be the movie Hero, if you watch the US trailer it is nothing like the movie. The trailer makes it seem like another action flick with lots of sword play. But there is so much more to it than that, I would say it's one of the best movies to come out in recent years.

i don't think i'm going to like it but considering the Wachowski brothers made it, it might turn out to be unsuspectingly good

Remember the episode where he was in that superfast car and you had to not have anything to drink like a day in advance or else you'd pass out? Or the monster caar episode where it was made of gold? awesome!

What a pile of shit! They just turned it into another "OMG LOOK AT THE EFFECTS!!!!!!" movie. So it's guaranteed to suck. Hell it sucked so bad I got bored watching the trailer.

I want to see a Chinese history movie without the wire play. Same production values and large cast, just no wires.
But ppl in ancient china all actually flew around like that, how can we repoduce that without wires?
