    "The Fast and the Furious" is not exactly a good movie (maybe because of Vin Diesel, muscle cars, and sexy babes in it) but it's not a bad one either.

    A lame overdose of chicks and cars that'll make you dizzy with bad camera work and make you scratch your head at its inane dialogue and dumb plot line. Full Review »

    Let's keep it short: Horrible camera work, which hurts to see sometimes. Looks like everything was filmed with a mobile phone camera. Bad script, bad actors, silly soundtrack. You can't give action AND a fully developed story and characters in just 100 minutes. I'm happy, Rob Cohen wasn't allowed to make the other FF-Films too. Full Review »
