-How often do you find yourself cursing out? How often do you blare that horn? No longer will you worry about such matters at least not as much. Thanks to some improvements (which we are starting to see now a days in real life) we have self driving vehicles or a.i.'s. Although, even with this kind of luxury doesn't prevent certain issues from happening. For there is really no stopping improvements no matter how efficient the current ones
are. Perhaps, that is due to the American way on how bigger is better.
-Intro is classy and somehow as a somewhat familiar intro song, can't seem to place it. Perhaps one you viewers will tell me why the start of the song sounds so familiar to me.
-Conclusion was okay but the art was clever.
-In terms of how the conclusion are was clever the artists took what we see for almost everyday and tweaked it to suit their needs. A real clear approach. An example of this kind of approach would be a dead end sign only to have the car drive off thus ending the film. Not a very good depiction but understandable when you see the actual film.
Each main character has what the other lacks. A good common match up. A good ideal scenario when one is depicting a partner scenario.
While others may write this off as any ordinary action comedy show i beg to differ. Perhaps it was just this show but the writer and the director seemed to agree to save the audience the frustration. The frustration i am referring to is the headache caused by too much tension. We get the idea we behind it. On how it is good marketing and allows for character connection but in truth sucks. For what is stopping me from walking away from the annoyance. Here this animation is very straightforward. An understandable wait period from one point of the movie to the next.
Set before the series, this special focuses on Nina and Rei, two minor characters from the original series, who are the top eX-driver team. When a Mysterious Mini-Ai Car terrorizes the city, and it's Up to Nina and Rei to stop it, all while having to deal with something or someone from the eX-Drivers programs past.
Out of the entire eX-Driver series, this was probably the most fun entry. It's just disappointing that it took until now in the series to have something fun, only for it to be a not even 30 minute special and be released before the franchise had time to shine and
got cancelled. If anything, it feels almost like a cliched 80s/90s buddy cop action film, with an angry police chief and everything.
This isn't anything special, but compared to the rest of the series, this feels like at least someone made an attempt, even if it's too little too late. The villain of this special was fun, and the way they created trouble was a neat little idea. The worst thing about this is that i feels like an episode in a much larger series that never got made. For some reason, this was included with the "movie", and not the series, which it feels like an off-shoot of.
If anything, this feels like the poor mans version of You're Under Arrest, just with a touch of science fiction. I just wish there was more to talk about.
