Movie Description: Speed Racer

Notice: This is not Japanese animation! I have, however, decided to include it on this site anyway. If you're one of those hard-core anime purists who can't stand seeing a non-anime series on a site dedicated to Japanese animation, then just press the Back button on your web browser and pretend like you were never here.

Based on the classic 1960's anime series, Speed Racer is brought to life in a colorful live-action adaption from the Wachowski Brothers (The Matrix Trilogy and the Animatrix). In this flashy adaption, Speed Racer is a professional driver who lives for racing. Together with his family, they strive to become the best.

When they run afoul of the corrupt company of Royalton Industries (responsible for much of the corruption and foul play in the racing world) Speed and his family fight off Royalton and struggle to bring justice and fairplay back to the racing world. However, Royalton is willing to try every dirty trick in the book in order to get rid of Speed and his family.

In his latest race, Speed must not only face one of the most deadliest tracks imaginable, but he must also fight off the sinister schemes of Royalton. Will Speed come out on top and put an end to Royalton once and for all?
