If it was a documentary about the trials and tribulations of the game creator and college dropout, Yamauchi-san, then that would intrigue me, but I'm sure it wouldn't gain blockbuster style critical acclaim that the director of 50 shades of grey and the rest of Hollywood are looking for.

This movie is going to have to pacify all of the drifting and explosion "Fast & Furious" kids, as well as, maintain the attention of the serious minded older enthusiast who will go watch Ron Howard's "RUSH".

I don't know, this movie can go either way, but as a long, long time fan of the series I just don't have a good feeling about it. I hope I'm wrong.

but as a fan, you should understand that games like Gran Turismo are also rather expressive. I have a "feeling" that the movie is going to have some of that inspiration.

Yeah, it seems like an odd choice.

I can't help but thing they've gone for something that has nothing attached to it in an attempt to pre-empt complaints.

Nobody can say they hate the way the plot or characters were handled, at least in comparison to the games, because there aren't any.

On one level it's very clever. On another... it isn't.
