All the people that commented negative things about this franchise most be felling pretty stupid right now haha
Can't wait until fast 7 comes out next year i think it's going to be better than all of them combined .
@alx Really were doing well until last 2 sentences? Why?
The director did a really good job on this movie.
The first movie was so bad, I couldn't believe they made a sequel. Then Tokyo Drift came out and that should have demolished the franchise altogether.
No wonder they brought back Diesel to try and revamp the series. Vin is not the best actor in the world and Walker is not that good either. Together, they are just two mumbling idiots working on the end of their careers. The original was hardly captivating for anyone with an IQ higher than the average 13 yr old. I highly doubt this take will be any different.
Fast & Furious, the fourth entry in the surprisingly durable car-centered franchise, but the first to reunite the co-stars from the first film, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, actors badly in need of a commercial hit, if not to resurrect flagging careers, then to reinvigorate their careers and return both actors to A-list projects. And with Justin Lin (Finishing the Game: The Search for the Next Bruce Lee, Annapolis, Better Luck Tomorrow), the director of the previous film in the franchise, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, back as director, Diesel and Walker are all set for their comebacks (or so they hope).

Fast & Furious (minus the "The," the use of an ampersand for the word "and," and the number "4" in the title). Fast & Furious is set between 2 Fast 2 Furious and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, making it a sequel (to the second film) and a prequel (to the third), so calling it a "sequel" doesn't work. Instead, Fast & Furious is an "interquel" (similar to the third Bourne film, The Bourne Ultimatum). As Fast & Furious opens, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his longtime girlfriend and partner-in-crime, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), are living and "working" in the Dominican Republic. Along with their four-member crew, Toretto and Letty have turned their skills in large-scale larceny to stealing tankers hauling "liquid gold" (i.e., gasoline). With the police closing in on Toretto and his crew, however, Toretto leaves Letty behind and relocates to Panama.

Back in the United States, the recently reinstated Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker), pursues a fleeing felon on foot. O'Conner's on the trail of a shadowy drug lord, "Braga," who employs drivers to transport heroin into the U.S. from Mexico. While O'Conner obtains a potentially useful lead, Toretto receives unexpected news from his sister, Mia (Jordana Brewster). A wanted felon, Toretto risks capture and lengthy incarceration, but he feels compelled to return to the U.S. and illegal streetcar racing. O'Conner and Toretto's paths cross as they vie to join the elusive Braga's crew. To get to Braga, O'Conner and Toretto have to win a racing competition run by Ramon Campos (John Ortiz), one of Braga's mid-level subordinates. Only the winner, however, will join Braga's team.

No one, of course, expects originality from Fast & Furious, especially considering the history of the franchise. The Fast and the Furious borrowed major plot elements and themes from Kathryn Bigelow's (the forthcoming The Hurt Locker, K-19: The Widowmaker, Strange Days, Near Dark) underappreciated 1991 action film, Point Break (with Patrick Swayze in the Diesel role and Walker in the Keanu Reeves role). Written by Chris Morgan (Wanted, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Cellular), Fast & Furious reprises the antagonistic relationship between Toretto and O'Conner, restarts the romantic relationship between O'Conner and Mia (mostly as an underdeveloped subplot with Mia left holding the bag, literally, in several scenes), and throws in obligatory car-oriented stunts at regular intervals to keep the well-worn, we've-seen-it-all-before storyline moving at an artificially frenetic pace.

Unfortunately, Lin directed Fast & Furious with the same casual disregard for spatial geography or narrative intelligibility he showed in Tokyo Drift. Speed, in shot selection and editing, dictated every major (and minor) directorial decision Lin made for Fast & Furious. As with the previous entries, the characters and the performance take a backseat to the car stunts. With the exception of Finishing the Game: The Search for the Next Bruce Lee, a faux documentary ignored by both critics and audiences, Lin hasn't returned to his indie roots or the promise he showed in his feature-length debut, Better Luck Tomorrow, and seems mostly content directing generic, big-budget, CGI-enhanced action films for moviegoers who love cars and other moviegoers who love the moviegoers who love cars.

Neither Morgan's screenplay nor Lin's direction ask much of Diesel and Walker, outside of furrowing their brows during the heavier emotional scenes. Undoubtedly charismatic, Diesel's expressive range has limited him as an actor, but charisma can still take you to the A-list, if only temporarily. Walker isn't as charismatic as Diesel, but he has more range (and, unsurprisingly, he's improved as an actor). Both Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster are sadly underused, though. But moviegoers aren't interested in seeing Fast & Furious for quality performances, but for the reunion of Diesel and Walker, the car-centered stunts, gratuitous T&A, and casual, consequence-free violence. At least on those points, Fast & Furious delivers.
This has to be one of the worst films ive seen so far this year with bad acting and some sort of impressive cgi.

Wow, this movie changed my life. Certainly one of the best movies ever made. :down: :down: :down: :down: :rotten: :rotten: :rotten: :rotten: :rotten: :rotten:
boring and predictable just as the previous installments
I thought the movie was very good. It was full of great action scenes and I am happy that they brought back the original cast from the first movie.
