fast-and-furious4-poster_0_0_0x0_400x594

my first movie review. I figured i would go with a movie in theaters now.  first off, why the hell did they call it “fast & furious” like its a new movie and not a interquel.  Anyway, If you have seen the first two movies you know what to expect. The movie opens with scene reminiscent of the very first movie with  torreto(vin diesel)  and crew  hijacking oil trucks in the dominican republic. Torreto eventually dispands his crew and flees to panama.  Eventually Torreto recieves a phone call from his sister Mia(jordana brewster) informing him of Letty’s(michelle rodriguez)  murder. Its through the investigation into Letty’s death that the main cast is reunited and the quest to bring the man behind the murder to justice.

 The Fast and The furious movies  mainly appeal to 3 groups of people, Gear heads , wannabe street racers , and finally action movie lovers. If you do not fit into any of these categories,DO NOT watch this movie.  Now if you  have seen the rest of the movies then you might as well go see this movie. Although one complaint i do have is the fact  that for a series that was supposed to deal with street racing, the FF series drifts(no pun intended) away from this idea as the second and forth movies only featured one race in each and focused mainly on the crime element of the movie.  The acting ranges from bad to mediocre.  which by action movie standards is not so bad. There are points in the movie where my mind started drifting from lack of interest in what was going on in the movie. more than  likely  because most of the filler scenes in between crucial scenes have been exactly the same in every movie in the series.Although i will say that the scenes featuring Jordana brewster will quickly get your attention back. Honestly, save your money for CRANK 2 .

  1. Say what you will about this series or this film in particular, but I really enjoyed this one. Give it a chance, it’s better than it might seem, even though the title is pretty terrible, redundant, and in need of being changed to something better. Good review, please check out mine when you can!
