Anybody who goes to see a Fast and Furious movie expecting intelligent plotting, oscar worthy acting, and a movie that will be analysed from critics for years to come will be horrified, but if you want a no holds barred adrenaline rush of hot tricked out cars, girls in short skirts. good looking men with six packs, great action, brilliant stunt work, car smashes, a pounding soundtrack and did I mention the short skirts? will get what they paid for. As this series never thinks it is anything else and most of the time delivers. The first 2001 movie was a unexpected smash and spawned the quick off the mark 2003 sequel Too Fast Too Furious that was a disappointment, but in 2006 came Tokyo Drift that although featured none of the original cast breathed new life into the hit and miss series, leaving the viewer froffing at the mouth with excitment to see Vin Deisel in the final moments. Directed by Justin Lin (Tokyo Drift) this fourth chapter re-teams the original cast from the first film ( due to none of them making a good film since the 2001 original) and with this brings back the harder edge of the 2001 movie. The plot is just an excuse for a string of brilliantly staged action sequences, but it serves the film well. The now re-teamed cast play there parts well, and now having the extra edge of them knowing of Walkers F.B.I relations. Why should you see this? because if your a fan of the seires you will love every minute, and no doubt the film will cause another batch of boy reacers to get even more points on there driving licence or wrap themselves around a lamp post. But the simple fact is the film does what is expected and delivers in bucket loads, making this film as good as the original, and puts the series fermly back on the race track.
Brilliant, no holds barred popcorn entertainment.
