It looks interesting. A jet engine, a rocket and a formula 1 engine, all designed to take it to over 1000 mph (1,609 km/h)

One interesting part of it is this:
Quote:
The Bloodhound Project is first and foremost an education project designed to inspire future generations to take up careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by showcasing these subjects in the most exciting way possible. The education programme covers all phases (ages) of education from primary through to secondary and further education, plus Bloodhound@University. Any school, teacher, youth group or home educated family in the world can register their details on the BLOODHOUND SSC website and download the free curriculum resource materials. Education institutions in the UK or South Africa can request a visit from a member of the Bloodhound education team or STEM Ambassador who will work alongside a teacher and deliver a presentation on the project. The Bloodhound education programme is also working with other STEM interventions and initiatives to ensure the Project reaches as many schools as possible. These include F1 in Schools (Bloodhound Class), the Smallpeice Trust, Primary Engineer, Science Made Simple and Young Engineers

"Musical" song and dance is horrible, no matter who does it.

The only exception to this I have seen was Chicago (it only "worked" for me because she was daydreaming).

The Python crew don't generally do movies which seem appealing. I did see (and liked) Kline in French Kiss, Wild, Wild West, and De-Lovely. Haven't seen anything else he's done.
