|Universal Pictures | Release Date: June 22, 2001||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
Shrewdly conceived, confidently executed and outrageously entertaining.
Turbo-charged wallbanger with the IQ of a tire iron. But it jumps off the screen with the mindless panache of a good bad movie.
A massive compendium of youth-movie/pedal-to-the-metal cliches. But man, is it fast!
Better equipped to deal with the workings of nitro-injection systems than human emotions, director Rob Cohen's film grows less assured the more time it spends with its characters, particularly through its dull middle section. It does earn points for trying, however, and while Walker is a cipher, Diesel has enough personality for both of them. Read full review
Strictly where the boys are: posing, posturing, and talking engine envy.
Drowns in its own noxious fumes. Who knew being bad could be so dull?
