"PS: This is a flame."
2 stars

Race The Sun, the breakthrough performance of up-and-comer Casey Affleck, also featuring the incredible talent of Halle Berry and James "the brother" Belushi.

As the webmaster of the Unofficial Casey Affleck page, I was ashamed to admit I had actually only seen him in Good Will Hunting and Chasing Amy, when I set up the page, since I have seen almost all his vast array of film work, with the exception of Race The Sun, which I could not seem to find anywhere.

However, thanks to the wonders of HBO and the fact that all my housemates have lives and were thus not home that Saturday, I was able to catch this amazing flick.

Thus we come to my review:

It was not a good movie.

Casey, of course, was outstanding. 'Nuff said. I give it 2 sporks because I was able to make myself sit through it, and (SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER) it got bonus points for making the fat guy win the race. (END SPOILER)

2 sporks!
