Trivia

The motorcyclist who raced Sky in the opening racing sequence, is seen wearing a replica helmet of Mick Doohan, which was mass produced by Arai in the early 1990s. Both bikes raced by him and Sky represented the Rothmans and Repsol (respectively) color scheme of the Honda Racing Corporation, whom Doohan raced for that decade. See more »

Magic...
26 July 2005 | by Jake-46See all my reviews

I loved this movie. I didn't know anything about it before I started watching it, but decided to give it a go, since I've seen some really good Japanese movies lately, and must admit they can do it really well in Hong Kong too. I am usually not a big fan of action movies, but for me, this was pure magic. I loved the story, the wonderful music and the actors (Sky is lovely). They mixed the racing scenes very well with a really nice story. At times very sad and emotional. Easy to get familiar with the characters. Very well acted.It reminded me _a little bit_ of "West Side Story", and also some elements from "Lola Rennt". Wonderful. I would recommend everyone to see this.
