'Race the Sun' is a very enjoyable movie indeed. The story of overcoming adversity and succeeding to overturn stereotypes is given a new application here through the across-Australia solar challenge. The young cast does an attractive, appealing job, and are extremely good to watch. So too are the on-location shots in outback Australia which are nothing but superb. The music is also extremely apt and provide a fabulous atmosphere for the film. A great family movie. 8 out of 10.
Great movie, very enjoyable. (by lonewolf126)
I loved this movie. The basic story is a group of Hawaiian high school students that go to Australia for the World Solar Challenge. The young up and coming actors were very good and the story was nice. Not to mention the Australian scenery is absolutely beautiful. Great movie!
A Great Movie!!! (by tristen12_34)
I saw this movie some time ago and it has stuck with me. Even though it was fictional, it was a heartwarming story. It just goes to show you what can happen when people pull together, even though you are from different heritages and backgrounds. I would recommend this to everyone, young or old. We could all learn from these kids. It is one that I will definitely purchase for my home collection. I loved the beautiful scenery too. Halle Berry, James Belushi and the rest of the cast are just terrific. If you ever wanted to see a movie that left you rooting for the underdog, this is the one to <more>
watch. I don't think you would be disappointed at all.
The funnest line in the movie I think is when Steve Zahn says There is a God, then... Well to me it's not really predictable and many times I thought that's yes something new happens, so it never ran out of surprise. I had fun watching it. And my, Gilbert's character is such a whooly-wooly. meaning, herlarious
Good movie for tough kids (by ddbernhardt)
My friend put it this way: This movie is "Dangerous Minds" without the violence and with a positive message. I showed this to my class of 6th graders at a Title 1 school at the end of a unit about solar energy. The casting is GREAT, the story line is a little hackneyed but typical of the genre, and I had my toughest students on the edge of their seats. One class actually CHEERED, for real. A great movie for showing in a classroom. There are a few cuss words s***, b**** but it only adds to the story - these characters are tough kids, and my tough kids relate to them.8/10 personal <more>
