Saw the stinkfest that was the Knight Rider movie. To quote JQH, OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVED the show as a kid, so I was cautiously optimistic about this one.
Of course, I was wrong.
The whole thing was like a big Ford commercial!
(Although, to be fair, Transformers was a big GM commercial).
The acting was horrid, plot nonsensical, and how they get him to become the new Knight Rider was insane.
SPOILER: "Well your mother is dead, so you have no living realtives and are therefore a clean slate" Yet, no later than 5 minutes later, its revealed that the Hoff (aka Michael Knight) is his father.
Then in the fun ending sequence, his girlfriend, her dad, his roomate and some FBI lady are all hanging out.
So much for a clean slate.
Did they have the wristwatch talking device?!
Did they have a Turbo Boost button?
NO. Thats like if they made a remake of "Good Times" and JJ doesn't say KID DY-NO-MITE.
(To be fair, they did show a turbo boost scene, but never referred to it by name. And I wanted the damn button.)
Was there a Devin like character?
Did KITT literally say "That Sucks"?
And the insane part of it all, the answer is YES!
Let us all pray that the Magnum movie does not end up like this flaming piece of #$%&%$.
So here's my poll.
Guess what I voted?
