Movie Info

A popular French comic strip of the 1950s becomes a candy-colored feature film in this race-car adventure. The Leaders and the Vaillants are rival families of Formula One car drivers, the former group devious and cutthroat, the latter benevolent and amiable. But when the hallowed Le Mans 24-hour race is at hand, both clans find that they'll resort to anything to win. With many of its scenes filmed at the real Le Mans race in the summer of 2002, Michel Vaillant was co-produced by international crossover success Luc Besson.

Audience Reviews for Michel Vaillant

I can't believe I've found a racing movie that's stupider than Driven. The racing sequences are just unbelievably horrid (there's a scene where two WRC cars duel... in rally... DUELLING IN RALLY!!!!!) and really doesn't serve any purpose in the movie. None of the characters here are interesting in the slightest and the conflict between Vaillant and their opposing team, Leaders, are insipidly written. Which is a complete shame because the movie is very well shot and a movie about the 24 hours of Le Mans can be Oscar worthy. But no director can save this script. Probably one of the worst written movies I've ever seen. Also have you noticed that the prototypes racing in this movie look more like Radicals than legitimate LMPs? The screenwriter of this movie should never work in any film industry ever again.
