This movie works on every conceivable level. On the surface its a goofy movie where you laugh at things blowing up. But, its really about a subtle lampooning of movie cliches. Also, its about how the most ridiculous plot points can be the most interesting. The goal of the film is to completely confuse the audience while at the same time entertaining them. Really a brilliant piece of film-making. I thought it would have a schlocky low-budget look, however, the production quality and cinematography were brilliant. There are a lot of shots with super-wide lenses very close to the ground, this gives a skewed perspective throughout the movie which is very fitting. The special effects were also quite impressive. From what I can tell there was very little CG work, but I have no idea how they achieved the effects or got the tire to move so freely. The actors do a great job here also and they were given good material to work with. It must have been hard for an actor to keep his composure given the nature of the scenes. Overall, highly recommended.
