Landspeed looks kind of interesting.

I have a copy somewhere around here, picked up from the $1 bin at a drugstore.  If I find it, I'll give it to SSS for the Bend activities.  Absolutely horrible film, but worth suffering through once just to verify my two thumbs down.

I have a habit of watching an entire bad movie with hopes it will get better. I gave up on this one less than half way through. So sad they took the effort to make a LSR movie and did such a poor job.

Anyone seen "Across The Lake"? British movie circa 1988 where Sir Anthony Hopkins played Donald Campbell. I thought is was called Speed King. I've got half of it recorded from many years ago when I accidently came across it while flipping channels. Yes, World's Fastest Indian was Hopkins 2nd movie playng a Land (and water) Speed Racer...There are copies available from the UK, may have to order 1.

I'm a pushover for anything that blows fire out of its butt, and yes I saw this movie in of all places Iraq. I would at least have to give it a 2 just for the effort it took to keep all of those actors "Acting" serious.

PS: It was still better than Speed Racer!
