Critic Reviews for The Young Racers

All Critics (1)

The duration is one of the film's tricks, which never gets boring, but shows a certain awkwardness when exposing some of its situations. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for The Young Racers

This is really just another stupid romance movie, but with the main characters being race car drivers. It's really boring unless you really enjoy watching car racing and think that should be combined with a romance movie.
