The story of Vert Wheeler and his racing friends that started on the "Hot Wheels World Race" DVD continues here.

"Vert" Wheeler is now a more experienced drivers with a street racing team called the Teku. The Teku Team have an intense rivalry with another team called the Metal Maniacs.

Both teams are recruited by Dr Tezla to drive in the "Racing Realms", which are other dimensional tracks that test a driver's racing skills to their extreme limit. Whoever reaches the finish line of each realm first receives an "Accelercharger", which grants the user's vehicle a special power (frictionless driving, hyperspeed, etc). Scattered throughout the realms are "Hyperpods", which the driver's car can attach to give it special abilities as well.

Unfortunately, the evil Gelorum has obtained the Wheel Of Power (see the Hot Wheels World Race DVD) and her robots will stop at nothing to obtain all the Accelerchargers!! If they do, they will be able to take over the world, which is NOT a good thing for us humans!

I have mixed feelings about the Acceleracer Series.

First, I (and especially my children) were thrilled to hear that more adventures with the Hot Wheels drivers that started on the World Race would be continued.

Secondly, the storyline is richer with many running subplots that will develop as future Acceleracer DVDs are released

But I have to seriously question several decisions that were made for this story:

- I do NOT support the fact that these drivers are street racers. While I'm sure it adds a "coolness" factor to the characters, why encourage a dangerous activity such as street racing?

- Also, the rival racing teams strongly resemble rival gangs. Again, why make this look fun and attractive to kids?

I am the mom of a Hot Wheels-addicted 2 1/2 year old boy. My husband and I bought the World Race dvd for him for Christmas and he absolutely loved it. When we found out that Hot Wheels was releasing new episodes we were thrilled. I must say we were a little surprised when we saw Ignition for the first time. Most of the old characters from World Race were back, which was great because they were familiar to my son. However, Mainframe Entertainment, the computer animation company, changed the look of some of the characters. For example, Taro Kitano got a makeover, Lani Tam looks a bit different (slim body, big feet), and Mark Wylde...well, let's just say he's a completely different person now.

All that aside, after you watch Ignition a couple of times you get sucked in. True..it's not as brilliant as World Race was, but it is still very cool. The racing realms are harder than ever, the cars are even more hi-tech, and Gelorum still wants that wheel of power. Some of the reviews mentioned that Ignition is much darker than World Race and should require a PG rating. I don't necessarily agree. It does seem darker because of all the conflict, but that same conflict was there in World Race between Markie and Kurt and Kadeem's and Vert's inner conflicts. I don't want to tell you what happens because you should see it for yourself. I will tell you, if you have a young son like mine make sure you watch the movie with him and explain that the swamp realm is all pretend. Once you get through that, the rest of the movie is a piece of cake.

For those of you who think Ignition isn't that interesting...watch the Speed of Silence. These movies are like a soap opera. Things make more sense once you see the second installment of Acceleracers.

Being a baby sitter and having two little brothers who are 9 and 11. I was thrilled that Hot Wheels was making a sequel to the World Race having seen the World Race more times then I can count. They didn't disappoint. With some of the characters from the first movie like Vert and new ones it makes so it doesn't feel like they doing the same thing over again like some sequel do. The plot is pretty good and even I was enjoying watching it with my brothers. My brothers are enjoying this one just as much if not more then the World Race. They love the racing realms and love the new and old characters that are back. Along with the great action. As for the violence there really isn't much more then what was in the first movie. Now some people are wondering with the way that they ended it is another movie coming after this one and the answer is yes. This is a 4 part mini series going on through the year and the second one has already aired on Cartoon Network (Cartoon Network shows them before they come out on DVD just like before with the World Race.) The extras are pretty cool. The only complaint with this DVD that I have is no scene selections unlike the World Race but besides that it is a great movie.

The Marketing masterminds behind this campaign are quite devious.

This disk does not contain all realms as the product description leads you to believe. It only contains Storm and Swamp and NOT Cavern and Lava. This disk basically contains the 3 episodes that it has released via the individual disks with the cars.

Apparently, the other realms will come available with individual cars to be released at a later time. Then Hot Wheels will release those two episodes on a disk, and then release yet another disk that MAY contain it all.

My Kids were excited about this release expecting to get additional programming, only to be disappointed that there is no new footage on this release. There is no resolution to the story line on this DVD.

In addition, you can not skip through disk, you can only fast forward.
