Top Critic

An interesting behind-the-scenes look at one of the world's most popular spectator sports.

March 12, 2004
Washington Post
Top Critic

Its rampant corporate sponsorship is messy and distracting, and the athleticism necessary to triumph is still less intriguing (perhaps because it's less visible) than the athleticism necessary to triumph in, say, baseball.

Top Critic

Doesn't quite overcome its shameless self-promotion, but the film will satisfy the Lynyrd Skynyrd set while providing a decent explanation to those who are baffled by the sport's popularity.

A 45-minute glorified infomercial.

It was an informative, behind-the-scenes look, but for someone who's not really a Nascar fan, it was ehh.

Okay, so, I had to watch this with a friend of mine. (Who's obsessed with "Nascar.")
Through the entire thing he's smiling and enjoying what he sees. Honestly, I don't like Nascar. (Yes, I'm a guy.)
I don't see what's enjoyable about watching cars go around in circles for several hours, then someone wins. It's pointless. But, that's not what I'm here to talk (erm, "write") about. I'm here to talk about "Nascar: The Imax Experience." I didn't enjoy it as much as my friend did.
But I did find it, erm, interesting(?) enough to sit through.
Not enough to pay for, even with the Imax crap.
It's a simple documentary about Nascar. Okay, it has everything a redneck, car loving person would love: Cars.
What it does NOT have: Something to go off of. (Well, that depends on what you wanna see. If you want to see Dale Jr, cars, or anything Nascar related, this is your ticket. Anything else, stay away. It's nothing special, really.
If you miss it, you'll live. It's not like you're missing anything. If you want to watch this movie without paying: Go watch Nascar on Sunday. Seriously, that's all it is...Nascar.
Yes, it's boring. I almost fell asleep. Almost, that is. After it, my friend turned to me and asked, "What'd you think?" I replied with a simple, "Interesting."
I didn't want to break it to him that I didn't like it.
My score: 3.5/10
My RT score: 30/100

UNIMPRESSIVE DOCUMENTARY PRAISING CAR RACING. IT CERTAINLY HAS A VERY ROUTINE APPROACH TO TELLING A STORY. I JUST DIDN'T FEEL IT CAPTURED THE EXCITEMENT OF RACING, BUT IT DID OFFER AN INTERESTING INTO THE HISTORY OF THE SPORT
