In my review of Speed Racer, I mentioned the fact that it is an intense experience, one that will leave you as exhausted as you are entertained. It is a big, fast, somewhat bloated tribute to the CG-infused psyches of the brothers Wachowski, two directors who have constantly sought to take visual effects to the next level. With Speed Racer, they don’t wait around too long before the spectacle gets into high gear, as you will see when you watch the following video. Below you will find the first 7 minutes of the film, in which Speed, played by Emile Hirsch, flashes back to childhood memories as he rips around the track in the Mach 5.
Check it out below:
You can also check it out in High Definition over on Yahoo. Pretty cool, right? Now imagine that it goes on for another 2 hours and 8 minutes and you will have a good idea at what is in store for you, should you decide to head out and see Speed Racer this weekend.
