Team Hot Wheels – The Origin Of Awesome: Blu-ray Review











The Movie:

In the sloooooowest town in the world, four lucky kids are about to discover that life is better…in the fast lane! Meet Gage, Wyatt, Brandon and Rhett. Kids born to ride. Separately, they are seriously skilled racers, but together they become TEAM HOT WHEELS! When a mysterious black car roars into their town, it creates an incredible orange track wherever it goes, but it also creates insane transformations and rampaging monsters. Ride along on an awesome adventure as Team Hot Wheels discover their true inner racer, confront Mutant Machines, navigate chaotic track, learn to work together and race to save their town!

I’m no doubt still a kid at heart and what little kid doesn’t love Hot Wheels. I’m just glad that I have a son that loves these kinds of things too. Right from the start the movie just seems like so much fun. The vivid colors and line up of likeable characters would make any kid (or big kid) enjoy it. The story isn’t complex at all which is good for the kiddos but some adults may find it lacking in that department. You take a group of hotshot drivers and recruit them into a team with a mission that leads them on the hunt for a device that could mean great things for anyone with good intentions but in the wrongs hands could mean the end of mankind. It definitely had my son entertained (and wanting more Hot Wheels track sets). Like I always say though, these movies are for a specific audience and if you’re an adult and you don’t like it then just know that it’s okay that you don’t. For the most part it’s not meant for you. The animation was stupendous and probably one of the best looking cartoons that I’ve seen in a while. Every scene was so crystal clear and I will say that it looks absolutely amazing on a 240Hz LED TV. In the end this is a great action packed film for any kid that loves to use their imagination. Pick this up for the kiddos and I guarantee they’ll love it!
