Lilith forms an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland, a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina, a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg, Tina’s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis, the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap, a persistently wiseass robot.

The movie stars Archie Madekwe as Mardenborough alongside David HarbourOrlando BloomDarren BarnetGeri Halliwell Horner, and Djimon Hounsou .Gran Turismo does well because it eschews its video game origins quickly before settling into a standard race car movie, and it’s climax is quite satisfying. On the whole fans of race-car movies should be in for a good time.
