Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The vision of a future where it’s illegal to manually drive a car on the freeway is a very realistic one, as is the notion that there would be people who’d break the rules just for the thrill of it.

Con: There’s no plot to the story. As soon as we realize what’s actually happening, it just ends.
