Speed Racer

The Wachowski Brothers are batting second on the summer blockbuster roster with their latest anime inspired film. I must admit that I was never a fan of the original cartoon unlike several of my friends who remember it fondly from their childhood. The car is cool and the racing beyond ridiculous but the highlights for me are Christina Ricci and Susan Sarandon as the sexy girlfriend and the ideal mother. The movie was better then I expected but still channels the cartoon vibe to distraction. With a summer full of blockbusters to come, this one may get derailed to the box office pits.
