Rush, last year’s promised Holy Grail Of The Motoring Enthusiast We’re Not That Sad Really, or HGOTMEWNTSR for handy moments when you don’t want to repeat that whole mess of a poorly punctuated sentence, was, and still is, crap.
Most of you will disagree, but frankly, you’re wrong.
In its place I give you Redline. This is the full movie, and you may need to sign in to see it, but in the words of the first review I could find ‘… there’s so much more: transforming robots, gore, gratuitous nudity, badboys with ridiculous masks, and most importantly, surprise, passion,(1) and joy’.(2)
So, quite a lot like Rush, then. Only with added transforming robots, surprise, passion and joy.
Happy New Year.
