    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.

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

    As it is, you'd get the same level of excitement watching "T.J. Hooker" reruns.
  6. 30
    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.

    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.

    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 »

    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 outIt 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 »
