Movie Info

Mike Tracer 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).

What a show & what a series, its a shame they may ban this altogether. Sign the Knight Rider Petition to save this fantastic show from going to the wall.

This was a pretty normal made for tv movie that did what it wanted to do. It explained who the new characters were and had a few chase scenes.
I liked the new car and thought it looked good driving and all but it didn't have enough tech in the actual car to make it look like KITT. All it had was a computer screen. I missed seeing all the buttons and read outs that the old car had. The old car seems more high tech because of it.
The acting was poor and I hope they make it better if it goes into a full series.

This film will turn out good depending on how you look at it. This is a made for TV movie that will maybe spark a TV series. So, if you watch this and are expecting a sensational blockbuster this will definitely disappoint. For a TV movie though, it isn't too bad. You can also say that this is like a 2 hour TV episode.The story is straightforward and you don't have to have watched the older TV series or movies to get a grasp of this. Although, like most other movies in this category, watching the series makes things so much easier to pick up. Especially character relationships. There isn't a whole lot of dramatic parts in this film and there is a good dosage of K.I.T.T. It is really hard to find this boring, unless you are expecting a bunch of awesome CG and over the top action. The CG is indeed nice, but there isn't a whole lot of it. There are a few car chases, but nothing comparable to Ronin.As far as the new K.I.T.T. is concerned, the model is acceptable. Black and slick. In this film though, the car is a little overpowered, in my opinion. Changing colors and being nearly indestructible is overdoing it by just a little bit.The acting is OK. Justin Bruening isn't all that great in the beginning, but by the end he shows he can be the next driver. Sydney Tamiia Poitier is underused, but pulls off a good FBI agent. The lead actress, Deanna Russo, is nothing special. She reminds me of Zooey Deschanel. Val Kilmer's voice isn't too bad for K.I.T.T. Not as good as the original. Last but not least, what would Knight Rider be without the Hoff, passing the torch.This is not a huge movie that you will be talking about for days, but it is a decent watch if you like Knight Rider.

Nothing but an extended Ford commercial! The special effects were obvious, the acting and plot were ridiculous. I actually didn't hate the scene with Hasselhoff though. From what I remember of the original, it was better, and so it was at least nice to see him pass the torch.
