for an anime interpretation it looks as a real to life as it could possibly get in my opinion without scrrewing up the source material or looking too ridiculous. After all speed racer was so close to the source material in many aspects that it didn't appeal to a wider audience. If Fox wants this movie to make money and to also go through with the other two sequels, they must advertise and appeal to a wider audience. That being said, my expectations have raised. I dont think it'll be amazing but i'm also expectating it to not be bad.... if that makes sense.
