The longest promo video for Speed Racer is also the most coherent — and the most exciting. Somehow all those swooshes of cars flipping over each other look a lot more thrilling when you can place them in some sort of context. Plus some of the coolest bits of this video are either new, or I've missed them in the shorter, more chopped up versions — like the wheel knife duel halfway through. I've been more and more juiced for Speed since I talked to designer Owen Paterson a couple weeks ago, but this video has convinced me to enjoy Speed Racer totally on its own hyper-crack-monkey terms.
