I realized upon exiting the theater that Ursula and I had seen all but one of the “blockbusters” to date. Iron Man, Caspian, and Speed Racer. We still need to see Indy.
And after Speed Racer, I could use a good dose of Professor Jones.
Before I go farther, the kids LOVED it.
It was basically the 70’s cartoon in a 21st century format. The plotline, the races, the whole thing SCREAMED “cartoon.” The villains were villain-y, the good guys were good – no ambiguity. And they kept the little twists that made the cartoon fun. I enjoyed it, but in that way you enjoy a bad shot of tequila. Good while it’s going down, but after you need something to get the taste out of your mouth…or in this case, eyeballs.
You know, maybe I should have saved Iron Man for later in the summer, because so far, NOTHING has been as much fun to watch.
