Well we just went and saw it today and personally I liked it. There was a couple of overly dramatic scenes, but overall it was a good movie. But we did see previews for the Fast and the Furious and that looked really cool.

IMO, the plot was do-able, but the acting was second rate, the dialogue was terrible and i really didn't care about anyone in the whole story.

The special effects were borderline terrible in most cases and the crash scenes were simply ludicrous.

Oh well, the Rice and Ridiculous might be better, but i doubt it.

I fully agree. There was very little to keep me interested other than laughing at the rediculous crashes. And it pissed me off when the CART car was flying through the air with exposed tube frame. They DON'T have tube frames!! The constant downshifting in straights was annoying too. If they are that close they should have already been topping out every gear making it impossible to downshift yet they were downshifting 2 and 3 times on a straight! Overall, just an incredibly fake movie that could have had such awesome potential.

Draven,
I dunno, Wesley Snipes was pretty good in Blade.

The CG effects were horrendous in Drivel, I mean Driven. And that was just the 1/2 hour show on Speedvision.

I thought it was entertaining, but I did find the special effects to be a little overdone. It was worth a matinee price but not full price.

Driven was soo stereotypical is was annoying. Like Spectre said, the constant downshifting got annoying really quick; they should be at the top of each gear before shifting up, so there is no reason for a downshift.

The movie did not flow well at all. They would show little sequences that had little to do with the actual storyline. IE: they show the plane taking off and then tell you they are in Japan or Germany or whereever. Like we don't know they flew to the other countries. The little clips of actual racing footage was horrible as well. It looked like somebody took a camcorder and added in some footage. On those small clips, they would be describing positions (which are incorrect in the real footage) then blip back to their new footage and miraculously the cars are in their correct positions again.

<FONT COLOR="Red">**Spoiler Alert**</FONT c>

Anybody catch the error when the car blew up in the lake? Car explodes. Big flames everywhere. They then zoom out and you can see the fully intact, unburning car in the water; they then zoom back in and the car is now in pieces and burning again.

I especially enjoyed the little jump over the candystriping at the end. It looked so horribly fake. Almost as bad as the jump at the end of Gone in 60.

I enjoy movies that have been edited properly, flow well, and have been researched properly. Small little 'oopsies' bother me because they are usually obvious to me. I give driven a valiant effort at trying to portray something of that caliber, but somethings were just sad. Some of the crashes looked really well done ( a little overdramatic, but thats ok), while some bombed.

With all this said, it is probably worth seeing once, its got some cool parts. Just keep an open mind and it will keep you entertained for the 1.5 hours. If you go in there expecting it to be the 'pinnacle' (they said this on their 30min making of feature) of racing movies, you will be disappointed.

I'm all for the "suspension of disbelief", and being entertained, but perhaps i'm a bit too cerebral about things.

Oh good lord, how could i forget the music! They changed songs every 3 minutes, there must have been at least two dozen different music tracks in the movie and not one of them was played more than a minute.

Music was the reason i nearly walked out of Payback. It was simply AWFUL!

whew...

Maybe some of you guys just shouldn't watch movies... I mean, yeah, it had its moments, but the bottom line is, any half-decent racing movie is better than most of the crap out there... (if racing is your thing) Of course some scenes will have their little nuances, but it's JUST a movie!
I can't wait till Fast and the Furious comes out... "Man, that scene where the car jumped was sooooo fake... and they shifted way too much... Oh, and in real life the cops would've caught them... blah, blah, etc. Just enjoy the movie for what it is!

*This has been my 2 cents*

Would you rather watch a movie where all the jumps and crashes are real and people really do die? Do you like to watch people die or something?

Hmmm.......
