    Well, pretty faithful to the original (****ty acting)

    But its all about the car, which is badass.

    I managed to get 43 minutes into it, before changing the channel. The first 15, I saw teh car, lesbian's, and a 3 some. After that, it was all downhill.

    Wow. That chase was overwhelmingly retarded. Kitt can drive 600+ miles in 3 hours but it takes him 5 minutes to lose someone? :rolleyes:

    WTF is the point of having the non pursuit mode when you can change into looking like a base GT? Why not just roll around as the GT and then when it's time to throw down change into the GT500KR without all that stupid ricey crap on it?

    There were a LOT of things they should've done differently, but I dunno ... I still enjoyed it, for what it was (a made-for-TV movie). Pretty much got the feeling that it was mostly just a 2-hour-long Ford product showcase, as the only non-Ford vehicle I saw in the show was the GMC that the bad guys were driving (and it was promptly destroyed).

    Even so ... loved the new KITT (in spite of the double-decker riceboy spoiler), and so it was a treat getting to watch a Shelby tear arse around for half the entire movie. I give it a one thumbs-up review. :nice:

    Biggest disappointment: I honestly expected to see the Hoff jump into the older KITT and drive off at the end of the show, instead of just walking away. :notnice:

    lol That's what I was thinking. "KITT can't shake a damn Ford Edge?" Nothing wrong with product placement but sheesh. lol I thought the second half of the show was a little better. Overall, it was about what I expected. Kumm3 pretty much summed it up.

    In the early scene where the bad guys were checking out KITT in the garage, you can see parts from the old KITT laying around. There was a trans am under a cover and various parts from it scattered around.

    I guess it was to say the new KITT was partially made from the old KITT...so there is some connection.


    I agree though, it would have been nice to see the ole T/A make a cameo.

    I watched about the first 15mins of it. It was full of bad acting and as corny as the original. Turned it off and found something better to waste my time on.

    Wasn't there a Knight Rider movie called "Kight Rider 2000" that had a pontiac Banshee in it??

    Was that lost in the Canon?

    EDIT

    Found it. Wasn't this the original Knight Industries Three Thousand?

    yeah, it was called "The Last Ride" not a bad flick considering it was like a USA original or something like that. Dennis Hopper has a soft spot for cheesy assed flicks.

    I enjoyed every minute of it. The car is amazing. AND you can actually hear the charger too.
