    I can see why Fast and Furious might be a smash as audiences look for escape from a broken economy. All those wheelies and power slides are designed to obliterate thought, not provoke it. Talk about a movie for its time. show more

    Succeeds because the action is supercharged in a style that recalls Mel Gibson's apocalyptic classic, "The Road Warrior." The characters are more than cartoonish, and the plot grips the road. But it's Diesel who provides the nitro injection show more

    Like a lemon that's been tricked out with a fancy paint job, Fast & Furious won't stand up to much scrutiny under the hood. show more

    Fast & Furious is the first film since the original to be smart about how far to stretch logic without sacrificing the desired macho swagger and revved-up emotions. show more

    No matter what, it's safe to say that this entirely acceptable retooling of the franchise makes for a satisfying experience for those who enjoy four-wheeled chases, hot bodies, hot cars, and a tall dose of tough-guy machismo. show more

    It sticks to what the series does best, mixing souped-up cars with corny jokes. show more

    I hope the producers bring Lin back for the fifth film and strip it down even more. They can lose all the human characters except Brian and Mia and simply call it F&F. show more

    By 2009, the franchise has nothing new to offer. The culture, through video games and reality television, has caught up to the series and surpassed it. show more

    Typical Fast and the Furious story. Always involving money laundering of some kind. It does tell the story of the Japanese guy (Hans) and how (I guess) he ended up in Tokyo. Now I know the whole Tokyo scene with Vin Diesel's character and Han.

    Some wrong reviews in here. The whole cast wasnt in the movie that I recall Vincent was missing. He was probably still in Jail. The movie was as good as the others I like the one in Miami best. Then I love South Florida. But If you are a Fast and the Furious lover, don't miss this one.
