Storyline

In the future, guns are banned and criminals are frozen for the duration of their sentences. A recent spate of killings involving handguns brings Michael Knight back to fight for justice, but he insists of the help of KITT, his artificially-intelligent car from decades ago. The only problem is that KITT has been deactivated. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Trivia

The production attempted to use a Pontiac Banshee concept car as KITT, but was unable to secure one. As a result, they hired Jay Ohrberg's Star Cars Inc. to alter a 1991 Dodge Stealth to use as the Knight 4000. This custom car also made appearances in CHiPS '99 and Power Rangers Time Force.

Goofs

Most (if not all) the police cars in the movie are Chevrolet Berettas. In the scene where the police are chasing the decoy van that is believed to be hauling the guns, the police cars are clearly Chevrolet Berettas. However, when the villains open the back of the decoy van and fire a missile at the lead police car, the target police car suddenly changes to a totally different car upon impact of the missile. This can be clearly seen with the differences in wheels and headlights in the clips following the explosion (the car on fire has two headlight sections, whereas the Beretta has one). See more »

Quotes

James 'Scotty' Doohan: [having been stunned by Kitt] They set their phasers on stun, captain... I don't like the looks of it.
K.I.T.T.: Michael, shall I mirandize him?
Michael Knight: [helping Doohan stand up] Kitt, it's Scotty.
K.I.T.T.: Who?
Russell Maddock: Star Trek, you idiot, he's James Doohan. The actor who played Scotty in the original series and all ten movies.
Michael Knight: Don't tell me you're a closet Trekkie?
James 'Scotty' Doohan: The dilithium crystals are fading fast... I don't think I can hold her Mr. Spock...

Alternate Versions

In the Sci-Fi Channel's airing of the movie, we see numerous edits and one addition from the original NBC version:
  • When we first see Michael Knight, the movie immediately cuts to Michael walking down the dock, instead of showing him drive his boat to the dock.
  • Shawn's birthday party is entirely cut. Kurt drops her off at her apartment, she asks him to run a ballistics on the handgun, and it cuts to where Michael and Devon are speaking in the garage.
  • In the garage scene, the movie blanks out the word "ass".
  • After KITT is reactivated, the movie cuts to a commercial, and then returns with Adam 2020, Kurt and Shawn's unit, already in pursuit to the robbery.
  • The conversation where Devon reveals the fact that police officers might be involved in the gun-running is cut. The movie picks up after a commercial break with KITT complaining of his new body.
  • In the scene where Maddock and Shawn are discussing agendas at her interview, the line goes "I was shot point-blank in the head-"at this second, the rest of the dialogue is blanked out, eliminating "... and I wanna nail the bastard that did it. That's my agenda, what's yours?" The sound is restored as Michael enters the room.
  • When KITT and the Knight 4000 square off, the second uttering of "ass" is blanked out.
  • When Shawn decided to drive Michael's Chevy, after she starts the engine, the movie cuts to a commercial and cuts out the banter between Michael and Shawn on the road as KITT takes them for the ride of their lives, and cuts to near the end where KITT almost crashes into a garbage truck.
  • After Shawn finds out she was betrayed, the movie breaks into a commercial (same place where NBC originally cut for a commercial). The movie returns with Michael on the side of the highway with KITT with Adam 2525 pulling up behind them. The scene where Shawn and Kurt interact in the locker room is cut.
  • The conversation in the prison regarding Watts is entirely cut, and the movie returns from the commercial break with KITT telling Michael that he is detecting some "company." That leads into an extra scene in the movie not seen in the NBC version. It takes place just before we see KITT speeding by the crane on the train tracks. We see a brand new shot of the police cars speeding away from the camera.
  • After Devon is killed, Michael returns to the garage to say goodbye and punches Maddock. The movie then cuts into a commercial and then returns with Shawn telling Michael that she had "the techies look KITT over." The opening dialogue with Shawn admitting to Michael that she had him "pegged as a loser" when they first met was cut.

Knight Rider at least for my lifetime
26 July 2006 | by mdorta8551See all my reviews

I bought the first season and plan to buy future seasons of Knight Rider I don't want the series to die out I would like it to live as long as at least I'm alive I will be a lifetime silent fan If I'm fortunate enough to meet David and the remaining cast it would be a highlight in my life. If it wasn't for Knight Rider I probably would have done something stupid Thankyou David and Cast for giving me a way to escape reality for an hour or two you saved my life.

Sincerely, Michele Dorta

Ps I cried when Edward Mulhare died he was one who grew to love Michael like a son and Patricia and Rebecca as daughters. The show has everything, drama,sensitivity, compassion, romance, the cast are like family sometimes I found my answer or a different way of looking at a situation and then I would apply it.
