High Points

  • Actually reminded me of an old Knight Rider episode.

Low Points

  • “Yeah, I switched cars.” Nice cover.
  • Thank goodness they found another excuse to get Sarah’s clothes off.
  • Recycled effects are going to get really tedious (turbo-boost animation)
  • Doesn’t seem to be a lot of consistancy between who Michael knows and who he doesn’t from his Special Forces days.

The Scores

Originality: 2 out of 6. The Fast and the Furious: Knight Rider Edition.

Effects: 4/6. Still good, but I’m going to start knocking points off if they continue to recycle certain effects.

Story: 2/6. At least they’re being self-aware about the alpha-male pissing contest. At any rate, if you didn’t see the end coming a mile away, get your eyes checked.

Acting: 2/6. Again with the brooding “I want to know about my past” look? Way too little of the funnier support cast.

Production: 4/6. Some damn nice cars there.

Emotional response: 2/6. Meh. A little too light, but it did remind me of old Knight Rider episodes.

Overall: 2/6. Still not getting any traction (see what I did there). They need to either go whole-hog with fun or crank up the tension. They’re straddling the fence and entertaining virtually no one.

“Journey to the End of the Knight” receives eighteen out of forty-two.
