Movie Review – Fast & The Furious, The: Tokyo Drift

Featuring nobody you’ve ever heard of, in a country on the other side of the globe, Tokyo Drift remains a divisive franchise entry for fans – it contains plenty of the car-based mayhem we’ve come to expect, but lacks the enthusiasm of a Paul Walker or Vin Diesel to really sell it. The story is inconsequential, the direction solid as a rock, and the soundtrack thunders along beautifully; in essence, it’s a perfect Furious film following the template laid down by the original.

Movie Review – 2 Fast 2 Furious

Slick, entertaining Furious film delivers plenty of the stuff you want, and very little of the stuff you don’t (such as plot, character development, and logic) so for that reason it works well. Franchise newcomers Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges and Eva Mendes, all of whom would go on to reprise their roles in the fourth, fifth and sixth entries in this amazingly durable series, deliver solid back-up to the awkwardly wooden Paul Walker, although John Singleton’s frenzied editing almost undoes most of his good work. It’s loud, dumb and fun, and if that’s all you ask of a film, then you’ll find this one a corker.

Movie Review – Fast & Furious 6

Gangbusting, terribly written, yet utterly entertaining Furious entry – the 6th, now – does more of the same: fast cars, girls, guns and stunts. While it’s painfully obvious that Vin Diesel cannot act to save himself, it almost matters not, thanks to a gargantuan cast of hangers-on and some insanely ludicrous stuntwork that keeps the pace frenetic even when the emotional beats threaten to overwhelm audience goodwill.

Movie Review – Fast Five

Action-packed 5th film in the Fast & The Furious franchise is actually an improvement over almost all the previous installments. While that may not actually mean it’s a good film (it is actually a pretty terrible one by cinematic standards) by comparison to the others this is finally a F&F entry which deserves its success. The pairing of Diesel and Johnson in the same film is dynamite, and the stunts, while bordering on the physically impossible, are superb.

Movie Review – Fast & Furious

A few years back, a little film came along that sparked the imagination of hoon drivers and reckless idiots everywhere, and a resurgence in the underground street-racing scene had authorities worried. The Fast & The Furious, a testosterone-fueled action flick featuring hot cars, and hotter women, took the world by storm and propelled the art of street racing into the mainstream. Starring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, the film would go on to spawn two less-than-critically-successful sequels, before everything seemed to fall apart, and talk of a fourth film waned into obscurity.
