Movie Reviews

A great movie about accomplishing your dreams
William Mackay | 03/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is about a hopeless group of high school kids whocan't seem to do anything right until a new teacher comes to theschool and wants them to be in the science fair. They get an idea to build a solar-powered car to race in the big solar-powered car race which is in Hawaii, where they live. And when they win this race, they go on to the championship race in Austraila where they compete in a six-day car race with other top solar-powered cars around the world and they find out that they can accomplish their dreams. Oh yeah, and Casey's character (Daniel) becomes captain of the team because he designed the car. (Daniel's a terrific artist). It's a fun movie to watch and to see all the troubles that the kids face in this movie. And of course, every movie has to have comedy and romance....and this movie has a lot of both! I'm a teenager (16), by the way and I recommend this movie to anybody. It's a really great and mad funny film! END"
We watched this for science class...and wow!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wow, we just watched this today in science and I was amazed. This movie is really entertaining, with a cast of some major actors to back it up (Jim Belushi, Halle Berry and Casey Affleck who is Ben Affleck's younger brother). The story is really inspirational. Based on a true story, it follows a group of high school students who come together in detention class. Things happen in the beginning, giving these kids the motivation to build a solar car and race in the world championships. After overcoming many obstacles, the team eventually makes it into the big games.
Here's where things get interesting, as we look into each character's personality. For instance, we have the stereotypical fat guy whom no one would expect to fit into a car, let alone race. Then there's the troubled girl with the alcohol problem, who gets disqualified from the races. Next comes the nerdy girl, who finds love in interestig places.
Jim Belushi and Halle Berry once again prove how good they truly are in this wonderful movie (based on a true story). I hope everybody watches this because it is really exceptional."
Race the Sun
William Mackay | Australia | 10/19/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"A feel-good film about a bunch of disadvantaged kids from a school in Hawaii who miraculously secure a spot in the annual Darwin to Adelaide international solar car race.
Reminiscient of the old Andy Hardy movies, the kids overcome all the odds to borrow, beg and steal the materials for their car. The usual array of Hollywood good guys and bad guys don't detract from the convincing performances of James Belushi and Halle Berry to make a good flick the whole family can enjoy.
Also suitable for science & technology high school classes studying solar energy."
A sunny smile

(4 out of 5 stars)

"While this film is typical of its mighty ducks type genre, it was still a pleasurable view. The plot was nothing special, but it was a feel good movie. As usual, Dion Basco is in fine form in his nearly patented portrayal of the loveable slacker. The rest of the case is enjoyable as well, and this film is great for younger viewers, with "you can do whatever you can dream" and "never quit" messages sprinkled liberally throughtout. Even older viewers should enjoy it, if they don't expect any deep revelation from it."
