This entry in the great LACar journal in the cloud will be more of an “impression” than a full-out review … my own background (and foreground as well) making it somewhat difficult to view “DIRT” in any sort of a non-partisan light.

That said I’ll tell you what I think, what I think non-combatants will think, and then follow up with what the people at Warners say about the adventure. Here goes:

Virtually every theatrical racing movie that I’ve ever seen (or worked on: ONE*) has followed a similar story line. And that would be some sort of a blurry or problematic past, a chance at something like redemption, a non-fatal fail, some basic turmoil … personal conflict, a last shot at redemption, (the win) and the (almost) inevitable roar of the crowd and the (again almost) obligatory steep camera pull-back from the final victory celebration.
