Ike Eisenmann, Kim Richards:
The actors who played the children in the original movies both appear in this movie in the same scene. Eisenmann is "Sheriff Antony" in the bar, and Richards is "Tina" the waitress. In the original, their names were "Tony and Tia." See more »
When "Jack Bruno"' is driving his taxi to the small country town, at least the two right side wheels are seriously out of alignment and both the front and rear bumpers are damaged. When they leave the town the Taxi wheel alinement's is perfect. Considering the garage mechanic only had one hour to do the repairs and it is very highly unlikely he would have color-coded bumpers for an out-of-town taxi, he would not have had enough time to complete the repairs as listed by Jack Bruno let alone the other repairs as seen as they leave town. However, there is nothing that suggests the mechanic didn't re-align the wheels first thing. It could have been that he started with the most obvious first and then moved to under the hood.

Despite a good amount of bad reviews, people are flocking to see this film! I wonder if it's the picky old men that don't find a kids film decent enough for a proper work that disappoint me. I mean, who worse to judge a kid's movie than an adult? At least a teenager has still got the perspective of a child...
The film really brought me back to good times at the theaters. I wasn't around for the original so, I can't compare the two, and went in not knowing what to expect.
Initially, you could go in and see all the things structurally or aesthetically incorrect and unpleasing about the story film-wise. However, if you take the movie for what it is, you'll see that it's truly the beautifully crafted action-adventure every kid longs to experience and captured within the mysticism and excitement of a good space story using just enough cgi to compliment the film, without overpowering it's actors as so many movies do today. It promises a simple story with inspiring ideals and experiences woven into its heart.
So, I couldn't help but put myself in the story for this one, and became completely immersed in the race. The great plot, unique characters, and pulse-racing adventure will keep you at the edge of your seat until the end!
