    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.

    Feels about as fresh and lively as a piece of burnt rubber.

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

    Spends a lot of time advertising how exciting it is, without actually being exciting.

    Fast & Furious reconfirms that car-chase movies--good, bad, or mediocre--all assume the future employment of the quaint old fast-forward button.

    The stars look bored out of their minds when the fourth episode of the franchise stalls between racing sequences.

    A series that's provided a successful, moderately enjoyable ride up to now blows its tires, gasket and transmission on its way to flaming out in Fast & Furious.

    Despite an improvement over the previous three films, this fourth installment is no more than just crazy car chase sequences and races. It is good to see members of the previous movies' cast back in action though. Full Review »

    It drifts on to a new genre (heist) which works very well for a franchise running out of fuel, but like its predecessors, no scene stands out as great. Even the twist at the end was disappointing. Full Review »

    "Fast & Furious" me gusto.Esta entrega fue diferente a las otras de la saga, esta pelicula tuvo una accion mas oscura y drama, cosa que las otras entregas no tenian. Full Review »
