Critic Reviews

  1. It offers an attractive getaway route from self-importance, snark, and chatty comedies about male bonding. Here, stick shifts do the talking.
  2. Fast & Furious is the first film since the original to be smart about how far to stretch logic without sacrificing the desired macho swagger and revved-up emotions.
  3. Fast & Furious is, in a very bizarre way, a thing of gasp-inducing artistry to watch, even if you're not a member of the NASCAR, gear-head, street-racing crowd.
  4. The reunion is fun and frantic, like the original on double nitro.
  5. Succeeds because the action is supercharged in a style that recalls Mel Gibson's apocalyptic classic, "The Road Warrior." The characters are more than cartoonish, and the plot grips the road. But it's Diesel who provides the nitro injection

    It sticks to what the series does best, mixing souped-up cars with corny jokes.
  7. No matter what, it's safe to say that this entirely acceptable retooling of the franchise makes for a satisfying experience for those who enjoy four-wheeled chases, hot bodies, hot cars, and a tall dose of tough-guy machismo.

    I hope the producers bring Lin back for the fifth film and strip it down even more. They can lose all the human characters except Brian and Mia and simply call it F&F.

    The Fast & Furious brings the franchise back to where it started with the original cast and conflicts that made the first two have someThe Fast & Furious brings the franchise back to where it started with the original cast and conflicts that made the first two have some appeal. The only difference is this time I care. The film writes the characters of Paul Walker and Vin Desil in a way that both are likeable especially Vin Desil and the relationship the two have over the course of the film gives it some emotional investment that the other ones lacked. The film while borrowing elements from previous entries picks the good elements such as fun car chases which are for once fun and memorable. The scenarios and sets along with some nice direction make the action in the film engaging minus the occasional moment when its hard to tell what’s going on and one chase sequence early on which has excessive use of shaky cam. The spectacle has also been toned down and hot babes and flashy cars aren’t solely relied on to hold the film up. The characters outside of the leads aren’t fleshed out and there are some cliché and predictable moments such as the bad guy reveal and Paul Walker’s characters conflict with the force. Its not a great film but it is entertaining which is something this franchise has never been making this the best of the four and hopefully the future installments keep up this sense of fun.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Damn, Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) really does not like Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) on this one. They have some sort of good friendship but at the same time they both just want to kick each others asses. This 4th installment to the Fast & Furious series gets a 8 out of 10. Amazing movie, but did not kinda get to the Fast & Furious level. But i'm glad that it was only this movie that kinda failed in a small way. Full Review »
