This is the first time i have ever felt that a film is deserving of a one star.
Fast and Furious never took off. I loved the first two, but this one just left me disappointed. It is supposed to about street racing, yet there was only one race in the whole hour and forty minutes and there were hardly any suped up cars. With exception to Dom, the few characters that were in the film were lifeless and the main baddies added nothing to it, they seemed to have very small parts as well. This made the plot feel lazy and resulted in a lack of street races and excitement, in favour of too many talking scenes between Brian and Dom. Very disappointing.
I love the Fast and Furious films, although generally I wasn't so sure about number 3, it has a lot of weakness to it. I was sure number 4 was going to also be weak, but it surprised me. Brilliant film, bringing back much of the old cast as well as tying in some loose ends. It is important to remember that chronologically this film is based before F&F3, otherwise it could cause confusion. Amazing. Get it!
