Go Speed, Go!

Here he comes, here comes Speed Racer
He's a demon on wheels

He's a demon and he's gonna be chasing after someone
He's gaining on you so you better look alive
He's busy revving up the powerful Mach Five
And when the odds are against him and there's dangerous work to do
You bet your life Speed Racer's gonna see it through

Go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer go

He's off and flying as he guns the car around the track
He's jamming down the pedal like he's never coming back

Adventure's waiting just ahead

Go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer Go!

They kept it!
The song, the clothes and the look!

It was like watching an ever-changing kaleidoscope! Matrix meets Car Racing set in Jetsons age! Lots of Matrix camera angles happening and WWF moves on the car. Action-packed! I'm not spoiling anything because I think the movie is worth the watch! Don't buy pirated! Watching it in the big screen is part of the effect! Cool! Fast!

Speed, Trixie, Pops, Mom, Rex, Spritle and Chim2x are all in character. That's what I like about it. They also added spice and depth to the original 2d characters to make them 3d. Like, Speed, he really admires his brother. They show his childhood to explain why. Trixie, the very supportive was there from grade-school to high-school.
Mom and Pops, the clothes! They attitude! Pops really look likes Pops Racer! Mom is always understanding and constantly cooking!
What can you expect from Spritle and Chim Chim? Pranks and mischief! Candy thieves and stow-aways!
Sparky is the trusty mechanic. He's older in the movie but he's still part of the family. He doesn't follow dress code or character but he blends in.
Rex is complicated in 2d and 3d. What gave him depth is what he does in order to change the racing industry.

Go watch!

By the way, Mach 5 is not Speed's car. It's now Mach 6. The 5 belonged to Rex. That's the only give away I'm telling!

The Wachowski bros certainly put a lot of effort into making Speed Racer... the movie overall looked and felt like a cross between anime, a kaleidoscope, that Flintstones movie, a video game and the Dukes of Hazard

I was glued to the big screen. Didn't want to get up! Not even after the credits!
