Amid the overly earnest tone, (almost) squeaky-clean humor and familiar messages about teamwork and integrity is the rare film family that's as strong at the start as they are by the end.

This is Wacky Races powered by Enzo Ferrari and designed by Andy Warhol - candy-coloured carnage with a turbo-charged engine.

The filmic side effect of eating an entire bowl full of sugar, Speed Racer is designed entirely with one audience in mind, and despite it's best efforts it's not going to appeal to anyone else.

What grounds the spectacle, pushing it beyond a two-hour ejaculation of sensation, is its yearning for innocence

You can feel the kids in the audience tapping their feet, waiting for more action. So, let's just give the kids what they want: fast-paced excitement, wrapped up in a colorful package.

The arty blockbuster has arrived, and it's as flashy, accessorized and auto-erotic as can be. Which creates a strange sensation indeed, that it's not just the cars that are smoking, but those Wachowski brothers as well, and whatever's in their pipes too.

The Wachowskis blur the definition of "children's film" as much as the original cartoon challenged Western perceptions of "children's television".

This is fairly simplistic anti-corporate fare, told in a way that occasionally defies comprehension as well as gravity. Impressionistic is the word.

Des Partridge
Courier Mail (Australia)

Resembling little more than a two-hour video game, the high-energy movie is positive enough about the strength of family to forgive the challenges of the format and simply go along for the (very loud and noisy) ride offered by the Wachowski brothers.

Given that Speed Racer itself is basically an elaborate commercial, the anti-corporate message inevitably rings hollow.

Speed Racer is a masterpiece of its kind, and a definitive benchmark for film not only as a special effects extravaganza but as the moment when the Wachowskis went from wunderkind directors to true auteurs.

Creating visual styles that break boundaries is what the Wachowskis do best; Speed Racer is a thrilling triumph of multi-layered visual storytelling, combining CGI with live action & involving mind boggling race sequences using virtual real-life locations

I'm not sure exactly who the audience for this is and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed, but it's a fun and wild ride that is unlike anything in theaters right now.

Perhaps it's not as visually overwhelming or headache inducing on the small screen... but I have to admit I enjoyed myself.

If a simple egg can be compared to your brain, then an egg watching the Wachowski brothers' flashy Speed Racer is your brain on drugs.
