More Info:
  • Michael Phillips

    At its best, it's buoyant pop entertainment focused on three things: speed, racing and retina-splitting oceans of digitally captured color.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Speed Racer offers a crazy, turbo-charged mix of cartoon kitsch, gamer action, and a wild new way to think of - and look at - movies.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    This is not a film occurring in an alternate or imaginary reality; rather, it is a film of NO reality, that is, a picture that changes the rules of its universe strictly according to its creators' whims.

    Premiere Full Review
  • David Ansen

    Speed Racer creates a timeless, visually seductive world suspended somewhere between the pop '60s and the sci-fi future.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Speed Racer announces the arrival of the virtual movie. If you watch the film overwhelmed by the assault of seductive visual information and wonder what you're seeing, here's the happy answer: the future of movies.

    Time Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Aimed squarely at family audiences, the Wachowski Brothers' return behind the camera for the first time since the "Matrix" trilogy is a blur of video action painting and very loud sounds notable solely for its technical wizardry. In every other respect, it's pure cotton candy -- entirely non-nutritious but too sweet and pretty for young people to resist.

    Variety Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Filled with energy and visual pizzazz and at least strives for something more than dumb entertainment.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • William Arnold

    This one is a kiddie show all the way, with characters as broad and one-dimensional as a billboard, a vision of good and evil as simple as a bumper sticker and a tiresome chimpanzee mugging through every other scene like something from a bad Tarzan movie.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Unlike a Pixar cartoon that embraces as wide an audience as possible, Speed Racer proudly denies entry into its ultra-bright world to all but gamers, fanboys and anime enthusiasts. Story and character are tossed aside to focus obsessively on PG-rated action and milk-guzzling heroes.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The cast is generally game for playing cardboard cutouts, with Goodman having the most fun.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ian Nathan

    It'll split the ranks like a pizza cutter: you might admire it as a Warholian blur of pop art, gawp and gasp at its Hot Wheels-for-real dynamism, or get a headache.

    Empire Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    There is one high note. You can approach Speed Racer as the trippiest stonerfest since Stanley Kubrick took his space odyssey.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    If this action extravaganza represents the future of movies, it's going to be a sad, dead and awful future.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    It's hard to say whether the Wachowski brothers' live action take on the Japanese Speed Racer cartoons is more irritating because it looks like a Hot Wheels video game or because the brothers seem to think that there's a powerful family drama humming away beneath the flashing lights and spinning wheels.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The movie demands you be a glutton for sensation and then has the nerve to ask why you're not hungrier.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    At an exceedingly long 135 minutes, the film needs more than what might result from the explosion of a Crayola factory, and Speed Racer has nothing extra to offer - no heart, no excitement, no moments to cherish.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    There's something here for everyone to dislike - the whole clan can have fun making fun of this thing.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    It isn't going to set the world on fire, but it's perfectly acceptable for what it is.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Young boys are the only suitable audience for Speed Racer, the elaborate live-action adaptation written and directed by "Matrix" creators Larry and Andy Wachowski. And even they might feel an urge to squirm.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    It's a family film done as a trip film. It is a trip, but it's a bad trip.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Borderline-experimental in the way it challenges the limits of perception. It's forward-thinking, visionary, and much of the time unwatchable.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    So hyperfrenetic that, in the end, you wonder if the Wachowskis aren't trying to pull off an elaborate hoax – a deranged techno fantasia posing as retro-ish family fare.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Yes, it's a candy-colored Day-Glo world, but there's a liveliness missing from this lead-footed Speed Racer.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Speed Racer is chaotic as a six-ring circus, gaudy as a transvestites convention and soullessly cute as a robot puppy.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    There's more story, heart, and – cutting to the chase, the quick, and the dead – pure, unadulterated fun contained within a scant five minutes of Rockstar Games' new Grand Theft Auto IV video game than there is in the whole of Speed Racer.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    Gaudier than a Hindu-temple roof, louder than the Las Vegas night, Speed Racer is a cathedral of glitz.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    The fakeness of it all overwhelms, dampening any real excitement. It's hard to care about characters so stiff and one-dimensional they out-cartoon the cartoon originals, and it's hard to watch them bop around like avatars in a flat, airless, digital world.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    This movie sets out to honor and refresh a youthful enthusiasm from the past and winds up smothering the fun in self-conscious grandiosity.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    The state of mind brought on by Speed Racer the movie is more akin to that phenomenon by which young infants, exposed to more stimuli than their systems are equipped to handle, will simply shut down.

    Slate Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Chances are, after they've passed the two-hour mark, viewers will share the same collective, if unspoken, wish: Go, Speed Racer. Go.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    Andy and Larry Wachowski barrel through this adaptation of the 60s animated series, hoping perhaps that no one will notice the story is as flat as roadkill.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Such a dull, clunky, joyless mess, it's hard to believe the people who made it understand much about movies.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Orgy, hell: The film is like a nightmare in which you're trapped in an arcade with screens on all sides and no eyelids. Based on an elemental but happily streamlined Japanese cartoon (an anime precursor), it's an eyesore, a shambles, with incoherent action and ear-buckling dialogue.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    Though the film is not as criminally poor as "V for Vendetta," which the Wachowskis wrote in 2005, it struck me as more insidious.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    This adventurously awful film is awful in many ways at once.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    This isn't a picture filled with wonder and a sense of fun; it's so jaded and crass that I almost wonder if it's a highly unscientific experiment designed to gauge how little audiences will settle for these days. Manic and multicolored, Speed Racer is an excess of nothingness. Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    This toxic admixture of computer-generated frenzy and live-action torpor succeeds in being, almost simultaneously, genuinely painful -- the esthetic equivalent of needles in eyeballs -- and weirdly benumbing, like eye candy laced with lidocaine.
