The character Michael Vaillant started in 1957 as a series of comics by French author Jean Graton, later continued by his son Philippe Graton. It was also adapted into television series and several animated pictures. See more »

Well, the movie is very well made, personally I like the car racing world, and you can see in the movie that Luc Besson is fan of cars. The script is very simple, is based on a comic, and it's not really very original, but the effects, and the way that frames were took made the movie interesting. Don't expect a kind of stuff like "the fast and the Furious" or "taxi" because the movie doesn't try to be spectacular , it trys more to find quality images. The rate I gave to the movie is a 7, and i find that the actual rate 4.5 is not enough.
(If you have played to Pro Race Driver or went to karting you will enjoy more ;)).
