Speed Racer

    (PG)

    Youngsters inured to video games and television cartoon idiocies should enjoy the visceral impact of this simplistic and painfully noisy, excessively-flashy orgy of special effects.

    Racing driver Emile Hirsch battles to win an all-out race to redeem his family’s honour and avenge his brother’s death.

    The frequently incomprehensible plot is simply a peg for ostentatious movie magic created at the behest of writer-director-producers Wachowski Brothers (the pair behind the Matrix trilogy).

    John Goodman and Susan Sarandon (slumming it in a 1950s-style hairdo) join in valiantly. Sheer volume makes it ideal for the hard of hearing. Otherwise, you have been warned.
