Called K.R.O. and built in the form of a black Ferrari, this vehicle also went wrong and had to be destroyed. See more »

Rematch!
2 April 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

I think the reason I liked 'K.I.T.T. vs. K.A.R.R.' so much is because it tapped into that feeling of watching this as a kid again; two over-powered foes gearing up for a reckoning. But did they make good on the promise and inflict maximum carnage in the end? Not really. But that's because the real strength is in the buildup to the main event, with Michael's anxiety reaching fever pitch. Bu the time you get to the end, you're so happy K.I.T.T.'s intact that there really is no letdown, at least for me.

The real drawback here is that Peter Cullen wasn't brought back to voice K.A.R.R., and it's a noticeable difference to say the least. On the other hand, I do like the new paint job; it's K.I.T.T.'s version of a goateed evil twin.

8/10
