All the people that commented negative things about this franchise most be felling pretty stupid right now haha
Can't wait until fast 7 comes out next year i think it's going to be better than all of them combined .
@alx Really were doing well until last 2 sentences? Why?
The director did a really good job on this movie.
The first movie was so bad, I couldn't believe they made a sequel. Then Tokyo Drift came out and that should have demolished the franchise altogether.
No wonder they brought back Diesel to try and revamp the series. Vin is not the best actor in the world and Walker is not that good either. Together, they are just two mumbling idiots working on the end of their careers. The original was hardly captivating for anyone with an IQ higher than the average 13 yr old. I highly doubt this take will be any different.
Fast & Furious, the fourth entry in the surprisingly durable car-centered franchise, but the first to reunite the co-stars from the first film, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, actors badly in need of a commercial hit, if not to resurrect flagging careers, then to reinvigorate their careers and return both actors to A-list projects. And with Justin Lin (Finishing the Game: The Search for the Next Bruce Lee, Annapolis, Better Luck Tomorrow), the director of the previous film in the franchise, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, back as director, Diesel and Walker are all set for their comebacks (or so they hope).

Fast & Furious (minus the "The," the use of an ampersand for the word "and," and the number "4" in the title). Fast & Furious is set between 2 Fast 2 Furious and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, making it a sequel (to the second film) and a prequel (to the third), so calling it a "sequel" doesn't work. Instead, Fast & Furious is an "interquel" (similar to the third Bourne film, The Bourne Ultimatum). As Fast & Furious opens, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his longtime girlfriend and partner-in-crime, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), are living and "working" in the Dominican Republic. Along with their four-member crew, Toretto and Letty have turned their skills in large-scale larceny to stealing tankers hauling "liquid gold" (i.e., gasoline). With the police closing in on Toretto and his crew, however, Toretto leaves Letty behind and relocates to Panama.

Back in the United States, the recently reinstated Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker), pursues a fleeing felon on foot. O'Conner's on the trail of a shadowy drug lord, "Braga," who employs drivers to transport heroin into the U.S. from Mexico. While O'Conner obtains a potentially useful lead, Toretto receives unexpected news from his sister, Mia (Jordana Brewster). A wanted felon, Toretto risks capture and lengthy incarceration, but he feels compelled to return to the U.S. and illegal streetcar racing. O'Conner and Toretto's paths cross as they vie to join the elusive Braga's crew. To get to Braga, O'Conner and Toretto have to win a racing competition run by Ramon Campos (John Ortiz), one of Braga's mid-level subordinates. Only the winner, however, will join Braga's team.

No one, of course, expects originality from Fast & Furious, especially considering the history of the franchise. The Fast and the Furious borrowed major plot elements and themes from Kathryn Bigelow's (the forthcoming The Hurt Locker, K-19: The Widowmaker, Strange Days, Near Dark) underappreciated 1991 action film, Point Break (with Patrick Swayze in the Diesel role and Walker in the Keanu Reeves role). Written by Chris Morgan (Wanted, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Cellular), Fast & Furious reprises the antagonistic relationship between Toretto and O'Conner, restarts the romantic relationship between O'Conner and Mia (mostly as an underdeveloped subplot with Mia left holding the bag, literally, in several scenes), and throws in obligatory car-oriented stunts at regular intervals to keep the well-worn, we've-seen-it-all-before storyline moving at an artificially frenetic pace.

Unfortunately, Lin directed Fast & Furious with the same casual disregard for spatial geography or narrative intelligibility he showed in Tokyo Drift. Speed, in shot selection and editing, dictated every major (and minor) directorial decision Lin made for Fast & Furious. As with the previous entries, the characters and the performance take a backseat to the car stunts. With the exception of Finishing the Game: The Search for the Next Bruce Lee, a faux documentary ignored by both critics and audiences, Lin hasn't returned to his indie roots or the promise he showed in his feature-length debut, Better Luck Tomorrow, and seems mostly content directing generic, big-budget, CGI-enhanced action films for moviegoers who love cars and other moviegoers who love the moviegoers who love cars.

Neither Morgan's screenplay nor Lin's direction ask much of Diesel and Walker, outside of furrowing their brows during the heavier emotional scenes. Undoubtedly charismatic, Diesel's expressive range has limited him as an actor, but charisma can still take you to the A-list, if only temporarily. Walker isn't as charismatic as Diesel, but he has more range (and, unsurprisingly, he's improved as an actor). Both Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster are sadly underused, though. But moviegoers aren't interested in seeing Fast & Furious for quality performances, but for the reunion of Diesel and Walker, the car-centered stunts, gratuitous T&A, and casual, consequence-free violence. At least on those points, Fast & Furious delivers.
This has to be one of the worst films ive seen so far this year with bad acting and some sort of impressive cgi.

Wow, this movie changed my life. Certainly one of the best movies ever made. :down: :down: :down: :down: :rotten: :rotten: :rotten: :rotten: :rotten: :rotten:
boring and predictable just as the previous installments
I thought the movie was very good. It was full of great action scenes and I am happy that they brought back the original cast from the first movie.
Trash. Trash. Trash. Vin Diesel stinks. The movie is a retarded rip off. There is no imagination here. The movie should be burned and destroyed and no copies left on the planet. On a scale of 1-10, it ranks minus infinity. Anyone who goes to see this voluntarily and not for a business purpose, or not being paid to see it should be committed as they have no brains left in their head.
This is more the sequel I was expecting the first time around. It's on the par with the first one and has a very similar feel. You have tons of action in the races with a hint of story and reason behind it. The leads all do a great job to bring back the characters you liked the first time around. If you were a fan of the first, check this one out too.
I just watched Fast and Furious. It is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Many people just don't understand most of the movie so they complain. They don't get how it is to live in that lifestyle. Something that angers me about critics. They will applaud and uphold indy movies, because they understand them. Most indy movies follow real life situations which are depressing. This is the whole reason why I hate indy movies and love action movies. They take me out of my life and put me in a fun filled fantasy world. This should be the reason we watch movies. This isn't tied to just critics. The bulk of the poor reviews I read from users were stating how "stupid" the movie is. They then complain how it dosent make sense, and is full of cheesy lines. It may be. A stupid movie would be one that has no originality, or quality. F&F is quite an original movie when it comes to setting. Storywise, maybe not. But that dosen't make it a stupid movie rated only 20%.
It has been 8 years since Paul Walker and Vin Deisel played Brian O'Connor and Dominic Toretto together on the big screen. While Paul Walker appeared in 2 Fast 2 Furious and Vin Deisel made a cameo in Tokyo Drift, they were not quite the same.

Now in 2009 they come back and with vengeance. Walker and Deisel both do a great job in this sequel taking place between the 2nd and third movie along with the other stars Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez. The story line is one that moves fast with a lot of action which leaves a little less room for our re-acquantance with the charachters. Once you get back into it, you will really enjoy this movie for what it is, a racing action movie.
If you enjoyed the first "Fast & the Furious", you'll enjoy this one. :up: Let's be honest here. The first Fast & the Furious was basically "Point Break", but with car racing instead of surf boards, basically nothing original. Its a "Popcorn" / "Action" flick! The formula for this movie is similar, but unfortunately not as good as the original (sequels rarely are). However, I think the critics are missing the point of this movie, which is fast octane cars mixed with dangerous guys. AND, Vin Diesel & Paul Walker are BACK together in a movie again. That deserves a better rating than 21%! If you enjoyed the first movie, GO SEE "FAST AND FURIOUS". Critics be damned! :p
While critics continue to rip apart Fast and Furious, the average movie goer is providing the movie with positive reviews. As for myself, I believe this movie was amazing in the aspect that you get exactly what you go to this movie to get. Fast and Furious, the 4th installment of the franchise, proves to be the best of the bunch by much more than a quarter mile. Most movie critics have attacked the directing, acting and CGI car crashes. This however does not apply to the general population who go to see such a film. If your out watching Fast and Furious you probally are not looking for clever directing, oscar worthy acting, instead you are most likely expecting to be entertained with crazy action, hot women (or guys for the girls), badass cameos, and unexpected happenings and twist, all of which are in the newest and best installment of the Fast and Furious franchise.
What can I say, excellent.

So overall, Fast & Furious is an outstanding addition to The Fast and the Furious franchise and it is quite possibly the most entertaining one in the series. Plus, it's one of my favorite movies of 2009 so far. This action racing movie is obviously made for the huge core of fans who loved any of the previous installments. Anyways, I totally recommend it no matter what if you just love a great action movie with some killer stunts that involve some sweet ass vehicles and a bunch of hot women or are obviously a fan of any of the previous ones like I just said. I know for sure that I will probably head out to see Fast & Furious a couple more times. And I will sure as hell pick this one up on Blu-ray or DVD when it's released later this year. :D
This movie is nothing like the first. Yea there might not be enough action but the action included is all that it needs. The ending is gruesome but extremely cool. The sex factor is also a good addition.
:fresh: If you want to see this movie, you have to see the previous films first. I am very confused about the plot of this movie, mainly because I haven't seen the previous films. Also, the volume of the sound effects really kinda got carried away. However, the action was very interesting though.
