Trivia

The motorcyclist who raced Sky in the opening racing sequence, is seen wearing a replica helmet of Mick Doohan, which was mass produced by Arai in the early 1990s. Both bikes raced by him and Sky represented the Rothmans and Repsol (respectively) color scheme of the Honda Racing Corporation, whom Doohan raced for that decade. See more »

The legend of speed 2 .
12 January 2007 | by (Mauritius) – See all my reviews

The legend of speed 2, is truly a 'worth-looking' movie . The movie, in my personal opinion is better than 'Biker-Boyz'.. it has good story as well as a good 'Background music' ! Many people has a tendency to compare 'the legend of speed' with 'the fast and the furious' but it's true that 'the legend of speed' is also an automobile movie, but the level of Technology also is different ! The HK-made (HK:Hong kong) movie released in 1999 was known to me in 2006 . Movies such as 'Once upon a time in china' also a HK-made movie was a great releases, truly 'Ouatic' (Once upon a time in China) is better than the newly-released movie 'Le transporteur' ! This is to tell that "HK-made movies should be more marketed over the internet" ! Try watch this movie and see if it's sounds my comments !!! Behind these aspects of this actual movie, i didn't appreciate only two thing, firstly 'paddy' who let's out his saliva on the car engine ; and secondly the villain (the guy in the Subaru' kiss his kid-brother on the mouth... "did he lack some love from her girl ?" . Anyway the movie has some great action scenes also (my favourite) the motorcycle-race, riding a motor-bike without the brakes !
