I made a comment earlier about how Speed Racer doesn’t look like a “live-action cartoon” but instead, a “live-action video game”. And I’ve already gotten a bunch of emails and seen a bunch of forum comments saying that the action sequences look like video game cut scenes.
/Film Reader Mark G sent me this screenshot from a Nintendo 64 video game called Extreme G, which looks very similar to one of the race sequences from Speed Racer. How funny is that? Click on the image above to enlarge.
