Trivia

The "gold mirror" building featured in this movie is actually a real-life building in San Antonio, TX, off of Loop 410, which now houses office space. See more »

Goofs

Most (if not all) the police cars in the movie are Chevrolet Berettas. In the scene where the police are chasing the decoy van that is believed to be hauling the guns, the police cars are clearly Chevrolet Berettas. However, when the villains open the back of the decoy van and fire a missile at the lead police car, the target police car suddenly changes to a totally different car upon impact of the missile. This can be clearly seen with the differences in wheels and headlights in the clips following the explosion (the car on fire has two headlight sections, whereas the Beretta has one). See more »

Not bad...
22 July 2001 | by (Annapolis, MD) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie when it first came out back in '91, and I thought it was great. Sure I was only 10 at the time, but I loved the show "Knight Rider," and I thought this was a nice little addition to its legacy.

Sure they only show Kitt as the new car for only the last half hour of the film, but it's worth it at least to see the world's most famous talking car in action again. And David Hasselhoff is wonderful in the role that made in famous, the lone rider of justice Michael Knight. Edward Mulhare returns as Knight's mentor and boss, but alas his stay is short lived as well.

But come on people, it was supposed to be an end and a new beginning. There was all the potential in the world for this to be the pilot of a new Knight Rider where we are out with the old and in with the new. A new car, new characters, and a new world to enforce. Alas, it wasn't to be (at least not in this incarnation).

However, as a television film, the acting is great, the plot is pretty interesting (imagine a world where handguns are banned, and crime is still a problem...do I hear sci-fi social commentary here?). If nothing else, it's good entertainment for 2 hours. If you ever have a chance to see it, I recommend you watch it. It's not really as bad as you might think...
