Specific Attributes

  • People generally thought it wasn't very emotionally engaging.
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster are back to reprise their role in the fourth and probably the best Fast & Furious movie to date. Even Han from Tokyo Drift made a cameo. If ever Vin Diesel is planning to do another one, the story must be deeper, the action more intense and the cars much faster than Fast & Furious 4. Right from the first truck-jacking scene, the audience was made to experience action packed sequences not scene from the previous F&F movies.

If you haven't picked up on it yet, there isn't much of a plot in this movie. The film wanders aimlessly, is superfluously ambiguous and has too many loose ends that go unexplored. But the movie does work as a temporary distraction from the monotony of life in general.

It also has some moments of unintentional comedy, which is perhaps a good thing considering the intended moments of comedy more or less fall flat.

The car chases definitely deliver and there are cars of all shapes, sizes and, perhaps most importantly, speeds.

While car fetishists might have cause for celebration, audience members should turn their minds off, buckle up and get taken on a ride that's dumb and loud, but fun nonetheless.

  1. Wow!! You really look into this show. I think this film is great but it's true sometimes the previous scene doesn't link to the next one. Haha^^

  2. I'm happy because they decided to put back the original cast. I'm a big fan of Fast & Furious....
