2.0 out of 5 stars this review is for fans of Jordana Brewster only: they say length doesn't matter, but this is just ridiculous!, August 17, 2009
This review is from: Fast & Furious (2009) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I am way too old to review this movie properly. For me, an action film featuring muscle cars is 1968's Bullitt, 1973's Seven Ups, or even 1980's Blues Brothers. Long continuous shots, no CGI with frantic intercutting by an editor sitting behind a computer, and actual muscle cars filmed at full speed with real engine sounds. Younger kids may like their films manipulated to the point where it becomes a video game, so I can't really judge on those counts.

Since I watched this movie to see my favorite actress, Jordana Brewster, I will review it only on that criteria alone. (So please don't vote for the helpfulness of the review if you are not reading this specifically for info on the aforementioned actress.

Here goes: She appears for about 6 minutes of the 107 minute movie, totalling six short scenes. The super hot angle of her in the car that was touted all over the trailer and commercials, comes at the end, lasting under 1 minute before the credits roll. (There were two 1 second shots that the trailer teaser alluded to). On the cover of the DVD, she is at the very front of the featured characters. Either she has a fantastic contract negotiations manager, or the producers of Fast & Furious 4 have taken Jordana Brewster fans for the biggest ride, ever.

She may have had more scenes and longer screen time, but weird things happening in post-production and maybe a few of her scenes were edited for time or may have been cut all together. I wanted to see more of Jordana as well. As far as muscle cars in movies, Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof" has some amazing muscle car scenes.
