This film gets a checkered flag!
14 March 2004 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

First, I confess I'm a HUGE fan of the IMAX format. I also admit to being a fan of racing (although I also admit I'm not a huge fan of "go straight, turn left, go straight again...repeat for 500 miles" type racing). Having said that, if it's got some kind of propulsion unit and goes fast, I'm there!

So, it didn't take much incentive to get me to travel from central NJ to Exit 24 of the Pennsylvania Turnpike to see this movie. Even the thought of shelling out $55 for the five of us to see it (advanced purchase tickets via Fandango) didn't dissuade me. Was it worth it? IMHO, you bet!

The 3-D effect has been perfected. You are there. If you don't like loud noise, don't go! I've never been to a NASCAR race, as our two adult fan-sons have, but they tell me the noise at the track is so loud, it's palpable. Even IMAX's multi-thousand watt setup doesn't really do it justice, they say. I think I got the idea, though.

Kiefer Sutherland performs his lines well. The script is pretty much secondary to the action, although there are some moments of genuine nostalgia (perhaps even melancholy) triggered by some of the images.

Funny footnote: just as the picture was beginning, two rednecks in the audience started shouting at each other, "I can't hear the daggone movie cuz your kid's jabberin' away!" "Oh yeah, come over here and say that!" My sons said "Gee, it's just like in the grandstands!" At least they didn't start shooting....

Of course, once the action starts, who would have heard a gun go off?!
