    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.

    "Just like old times." What can I say it's a movie ok, that I really liked enough: D. Anyway, all the Fast and Furious series is good, really can not deny that.

    A combination of action and a more detailed story,with no talent or effort put into it at all! Fast & Furious is complete garbage,yet important to the franchise.

    Fast & Furious is the darkest entry in the franchise and possibly the least fun. The story is great and there are a lot of good moments between the characters. Bizarrely, the weakest moments come in the action sequences, most notably with the use of unnecessary CG. Where are the crazy stunts the series is famed for? In the computer, that's where. Fast & Furious may be the weakest in the series, but it's still a fun ride. Expand

    I'm going to give this movie three and a half, although it almost deserves four. This was almost directly a follow-up for the first movie of the series, "The Fast and the Furious". The cast is back almost in its entirety, and you should see at least that part of the series before viewing this movie. Why not four stars, then? While there's a plot, it isn't that strong. It has been forced to give way for the action, which while looking pretty awesome is also a bit numbing. Perhaps that's because some of the stuff going on film would never, ever happen in reality. But that's the thing with most action films, right?

    Some inconstancies exist in this movie: if they drove a truck loaded with cars and drivers to Mexico, why not to bring the drugs back the same way? Also, jumping from a moving vehicle or a truck is usually a pretty nasty fall. I haven't tried it, I don't recommend it, but it ought not to be just a tumble in the dust either.

    Other than that, good to see Vin Diesel back in the series.

    For those who like fast cars, scantily dressed chicks, action, macho guys, blasting rap music, and all that jazz: this is for you.

    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.

    Turn off your mind, though, and there's some fun to be had from some of the better whizz-bang sequences of the film's biggest laughs is showing title credits. Clearly, after a prologue in which thieves play chicken with a burning, tumbling oil tanker, the possibility exists this is a Steven Soderbergh experimental gamble. Dumb, fun and awesome.

    Fast and Furious was a very good movie that had a darker and more serious tone than any of the prior films in the franchise. I loved seeing almost the entire original cast return and the amazing cars and impressive special effects that are a staple of the series return once again... granted, with a reduced emphasis on the cars themselves. The only real problem I had was that the continuity was broken a bit. *SPOILERS* Why, for example, is Paul Walker back in LA after the ending of 2 Fast 2 Furious? What happened to Tyrese's character? What happened to the rest of the crew from the original movie? These are not huge complaints but they did take away from the experience a bit. It's also evident that this film is a prequel to Tokyo Drift which was a little weird. Nonetheless, great film that is probably better than any of the prior ones other than the first of course.

    Features fast-paced action but manages to be disloyal to the fans who loved the series for its cars (me), the 4th entry in this franchise wreaks of predictability and transparency, and makes for one of the most painfully brainless and mediocre films this year.

    Movies arnt good because they entertain dumb people for 2 hours and they arnt good because they feature cool cars or paid models to show their legs and cleavage. Given the opportunity of having the originally cast back for another shot, Fast and Furious stumbles to give us anything the audience hasnt seen in previous instalments.There is little here that is very cool or sexy. The action is only mildly thrilling, the characters dull, the villains lame and the story forgettable. Collapse

    This movie was enjoyable but not great and if it wasn't for the ending race scene and the familiar characters, I might not have bothered to see it. None of these movies compare to the first two.

    i think that this was an excellent movie. it revived the two main protagonist very well and the story i which they are brought together again provides fine action and suspense. the rest of the cast performs well and provides convincing entertainment and i would definitely recommend this movie and i am looking forward to the sequel

  1. It offers an attractive getaway route from self-importance, snark, and chatty comedies about male bonding. Here, stick shifts do the talking.

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

    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.
