A Move that's at least 10 years too early for China to make
7 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is beautifully shot, and production is tight. And no wonder, Jingle Ma is directing and producing this movie. But unfortunately that's about the only thing going for this movie.

A group of woman racers and two male managers comprise a racing team. The women characters experience the angst of overcoming problems in their personal life, and life as a professional racer. But what happens in the end is quite predictable. Popular Japanese actor Kazuki Kitamura plays the role of the bad guy who jilts his Chinese fiancée, and the manager of the rival Japanese team.

The movie is very shallow, and that's probably why it's panned by many who sees it. It just cherry picks the glamorous aspect of racing, and tries to make a drama around it. The credibility is zero, and China doesn't have the kind of technology or industry to produce the kind of goods the characters are using. Everything is borrowed from the Japanese. The style, the helmet, the car, they're either Japanese or a carbon copy of Japanese culture.

If it had substance to portray authentic culture of China, the film would have been far better. Not doing so makes this movie cartoonish in a bad way. The lifestyle, the technology shown in this movie is what China might have in 10 years. The gap between reality, and fiction is too wide in this movie to pass the credibility test.

The movie might be propaganda passing as entertainment. See it for the beautiful visuals, but don't expect much else.
