It’s Days of Thunder meets TRON in Takeshi Koike’s fast-and-furious anime adventure about (and I mean “about” in the loosest sense possible) a futuristic, otherworldly mega-race where fixes are in, drivers keep dying off and a star racer, “Sweet JP,” finds love and redemption. This being an anime film, of course, there are incoherent complications of the usual sort, but by the time the funky-bot is introduced, you will have long since lost any reason to care about the plot. Koike (Kill Bill: Vol. 1, The Animatrix) pumps this thing so full of adrenaline and captivating line drawings – the sound design is a particular marvel – that eventually all there is to do is hang on to your armrests. (11:59 p.m. Friday, April 15 and 11:30 p.m. Saturday, April 16 at Regal Winter Park. Part of the 20th annual Florida Film Festival.)
