Movie Info

Crime-fighting supercar KITT returns in Mustang form in this revved-up retread of the 1982-86 TV series. Here, a jaded ex-army ranger (Justin Bruening) teams up with the souped-up auto in a desperate search for KITT's vanished creator (Bruce Davison). They also gear up to battle criminals out to steal KITT. David Hasselhoff, star of the original show, makes an appearance. Val Kilmer provides the voice of KITT; Deanna Russo and Sydney Tamiia Poitier also star.

If you're looking to see the sci-fi Cheese Whiz of your youth transformed into something compelling, then you're probably already watching Battlestar Galactica.

Audience Reviews for Knight Rider

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.

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.

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.
