You are a critic of one of the most unique adaptations of a CARTOON that has ever been made. Congratulations on your expert analysis of a CARTOON! You do briefly mention the fact that it is faithful to the Speed Racer cartoon, but continue to compare it to the Matrix, as if it were in the same genre. Why don't you mention the entirely new cinematographic style (genre) that the brothers have created in Speed Racer? You can't seem to get past the colors and the plot. What is wrong with color, anyway??? In my opinion, we have completely taken color completely out of our culture... just look at the color of the suburban home you live in, most likely determined by some neighborhood association. Now, look at the beauty of the rainbow just after the rain.
What are you afraid of? Of simple plot lines that kids can understand? Of being taken to another world for 1 hour and 35 minutes? Of having a little fun? Obviously you are too tight, my friend. Too tight! Loosen up and enjoy the rollercoaster ride that Speed Racer could be if you let it. One way to do this would be to go with a kid. Oh... you don't know any kids? So sad.
