RACING MISTER FAHRENHEIT (2024) Dallas Film Festival

Portrait of billionaire and motorcycle enthusiast Bobby Haas who decided to build Mister Fahrenheit, a side car motorcycle that was designed to break speed records. However as they were preparing to race the bike, life intervened and tragedy struck.  Uncertain what to do, the team digs in and decides to move forward.

What you get out of RACING MISTER FAHRENHEIT will depend on what you are going into the film for. If you are looking for a film that is a celebration of the life and achievements of Haas then this film is for you. The film is a wonderful celebration of the man and his achievements. On the other hand, if you are looking for a film that is going to go into detail about the bike and the effort to break a speed record you are going to be disappointed, because while that is here, it’s pushed aside by Haas’ story. Considering what happens it's understandable.

Understandable but less compelling.  This doesn’t make the film bad, it’s just okay instead of great.
