Storyline

Mike Traceur a bitter former Army Ranger and failed race car driver, just got a new lease on life, neither he cares for or wants this chance to make up for his past failings. FLAG wants a new driver, but he is hesitant to join this mysterious group and doubts this super car or he can make a difference. He's got problems, he's in debt and people want to kill him. The choice is all too obvious for him and the Knight Industries Three Thousand (K.I.T.T). Written by Anonymous

Trivia

For much of the movie, Mike Traceur wears a modern version of Michael Knight's signature outfit from the original series - Maroon t-shirt, blue jeans, and a black leather jacket. See more »

Goofs

During the final chase scene, K.I.T.T. gets his driver's side window shattered while his computer systems are still deactivated, yet in a wide-angle shot of the vehicles gathered in the road after the crash, the window is whole again. From what the story appears to say, K.I.T.T. can only "self-heal" body-damage that is done while his computer systems are in operation, so it seems doubtful that he could actually create a whole new window when there isn't one there to begin with - the destroyed window would need to be removed and a new one installed by a F.L.A.G. repair technician.

Quotes

K.I.T.T.: I require fuel.
Mike Traceur: You run on gas. Not hydrogen or plutonium or something really cool I've never heard of?
Sarah: Yeah. And what if you're in Nebraska and your hydrogen fuel system breaks down? Complicated isn't always better.
Mike Traceur: Why you gotta hate on Nebraska?
K.I.T.T.: My system is largely solar powered and recycles 91% of its expended energy, allowing a ratio of 167 miles traveled for every gallon of fuel burned.
Mike Traceur: So the super car runs on gas.

Potential but VERY badly scripted
27 February 2008 | by andybsmithSee all my reviews

OK, the scripting really was pretty awful and some of the acting was, as previously mentioned, more wooden than a redwood, but my main gripe which, to be fair, is probably not going to be something many people have even thought about, is that the voice of KITT never actually sounds like it's coming from the car. It just sounds as though its been added on as a voice over in post production (which is obviously the case i realise). What i'm getting at is that the original actually had a 'boxey' sound as though it were coming out of the speakers in the car, or even a small speaker under the center console. This is still where the voice would come from even in todays car so i do hope they do some sound processing to make it at least SOUND as though the voice is coming from the car and not some magical disembodied voice....

It's also a shame that they are alienating a huge group of potential viewers by having the adult themes which really add nothing to the story or the characters. If they cut out the actual killings and the sexual references, the show would not be anything less than it already is, and there would be no problem with all ages watching it as was the case in the original. The only reason this would be successful is BECAUSE kids watched the original and have now grown up but still have fond memories of KR. If they now disregard that generation this time round, whilst they may get ratings from the older generation, the show will NOT have the longevity the original still has..... Though what do i know eh?..........
