    I admire the craft involved, but the movie leaves me profoundly indifferent. After three earlier movies in the series, which have been transmuted into video games, why do we need a fourth one? Oh. I just answered my own question.

    A loud, dumb movie, but its male, car-obsessed audience will probably enjoy it anyway.

    As it is, you'd get the same level of excitement watching "T.J. Hooker" reruns.
