I actually liked the movie some years ago.
With J.J. at the helm, I fully expect 20 mystery boxes to be sprinkled through the first 5 episodes. Then after season 2 J.J. will lose interest and dump the project on somebody else.
The show will meander for 4-5 more seasons longer and finally the whole thing will be wrapped up with an explanation that all the racers were in Unitarian purgatory all along just like most viewers thought from the very beginning and none of the mystery boxes will be answered.
wait you think speed racer is going to even last 4 or 5 seasons
I mean, with JJ behind it? Sure! It will last far longer than it should, just like Lost, 6 times over.
In reality? No. One season. I just couldn’t skip the chance to take a cheap shot at JJ again for not knowing how to write a narrative.
