Did You Know?


Despite the fact that all 35 cars were modeled and are used, the same isn't true for all 35 drivers. In the scene where Tezla tells the drivers about the Wheel of Power the Esmeralda character model appears both in front of and behind Vert without having time to cross the intervening distance.

Kadeem: [sighs] I thought I'd found the wheel. But I was wrong. It was only that I wanted so much to find it; to win the race.
Haziz: That is the greatest danger. To see only what you want to see and not what is true.
Kadeem: I want to win, yes. But not just for myself, to get the money our people need...
Haziz: Our people need not what is yours but you! They need you to lead them.
Kadeem: Is that why you're here? To tell me that?
Haziz: You're telling it to yourself...

Highway 35 Rocks!!!
23 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

My 5 & 3-year-old sons can't get enough of this movie. Mainframe has really done their homework on Hot Wheels culture. Having the drivers race entirely on that distinctive orange track is brilliant, and the cars move just the way you would expect them to. If you've ever thrown a Hot Wheels car into a cop turn on the kitchen lino, you'll know what I mean.

The Reboot-style CG may be oh-so-1994 to animation snobs, but this film looks incredible. Desert Moon nails it when he mentions the sensation of speed, and the well-used screen shudders. The camera angles that Mainframe come up with will make your head spin.

And there's even a STORY behind all the action. A brisk story on the surface, but one with thought invested in it. There are themes in this movie that will RESONATE with parents (again, see Desert Moon's review). The only other production house that tells a story this well FIRST, then wraps it in kick-ass animation AFTER, is Pixar.

Dinky cars will never get a better treatment than this. HIGHLY recommended.

Trivia point: Look closely at the one team's bird-like helmets. Are the creators giving a nod to G-Force? Anyone else remember that 80's flatoon?
