I'm a sucker for 80s movies, but this one didn't click or strike a chord. Have I become jaded? Should I have seen it earlier than today? The answer probably lies in the middle. I was never engaged, and never felt the need for speed. There's a brilliant movie lurking beneath the superficial surface, and I just didn't find it. I feel bad bashing this classic piece of Hollywood nostalgia and machoism.
A most excellent soundtrack, though. And I'm still excited for the sequel. I have great faith in Joseph Kosinski. He's a credit to our race, to quote Watto.
