    Check it out. Don't blink. It's a white one I think. :)

    I saw that movie on Friday and yes, it was a white Roadster. It's not on screen more than 10 seconds and is at about 3/4ths of the way though the movie. (I also posted this in Random Roadster Sightings).

    I enjoyed it enough that I would go see it again. Being a bit critical, I thought it was 15-20 minutes longer than necessary and parts of the movie were a little over dramatic; on a scale of 1-10 I'd give it a 7.5/10.

    saw the movie today. I thought it was well done, didn't feel it was overly long. It was a pretty predictable, but still well acted, a slightly futuristic Rocky. But I missed the Tesla (didn't know to look for it)...dang.

    After the movie I thought it was kinda weird that the high tech character who builds the ultimate fighting robot is driving a 10 year old car.

    Oh well, at least the car sound was sorta correct.

    Haven't seen the movie, but sounds like he was driving a limited production classic.

    You can't even tell what MY it is so you're right it's the one with the 1200 mile battery and magnesium frame.

    Saw it tonight, I also agree it was well done. Movie tried a bit hard to villianize the Zeus camp, but overall pretty good. Saw the roadster too!

    saw the movie wensday! Saw the backlights of the roadster, and heard it zoom away! I had to laugh! It's the only techy vehicle in the movie, the rest are 1970-80 like vehicles running on petrol! Only the robots are "futuristic"!
    It's a kind of "mad max" meets "rocky" meets "free willy" (the orca) movie!
    Not realy a worldchanging movie!
