Personally, I'm a tunerhead. I love suped up cars, and the whole street racing scene. I can't say how this movie can relate to the real midnight street racers, but I'm sure it's been Hollywooded up enough to go overboard a little.
But, I was expecting to see terrible acting, a bad script, a bad plot, but cool cars. In reality, the acting is very well done. The script isn't corny, the plot is entertaining, and, well...the cars speak for themselves. (Vin Diesel's Mazda RX7 in the movie just went up for bid on Ebay!) This movie, whether you're into cars, or not, is a must-see. My friends who get bored even when I mention cars and racing still loved the movie for its other aspects. I thought it was awesome, but, hey, to each his own. Why don't you go and see it to check it out?
The FBI believe Dominic and his crew are behind the robberies, and it's Brian's job to find enough evidence against, but putting together the case against this crew will prove to be difficult because Brian becomes friends with Dominic and starts to understand his difficult life, and at the same time he is falling in love with his sister. To make matters worse, Dominics rival Johnny Tran drops in to settle some old scores, and the list of suspects in the robbery case is growing larger.
`The Fast And The Furious' is top-notch entertainment. Containing serious action sequences, and a thrilling mystery of the robberies, `The Fast And The Furious scores on many levels. The action scenes are some of the best filmed racing sequences I have ever scene, and the pulsing soundtrack keeps things at a high energy level.
The performances from Walker, and Diesel are right on the money, and the supporting cast of Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Chad Linberg, Johnny Strong and Ted Levine bring life to the characters they play.
Great action, and a pulsing soundtrack will keep you glued to your seat for two hours of entertainment.
The people that won't like it: People who don't know a thing about cars/engines. (i.e. People who think a TUNED Toyota Supra can't beat a "Mid-life crisis" Ferrari) People that are expecting more from the movie than just fast and furious driving, which it delivers! and delivers well.
People who will like it: People who have a passion for cars and the technology behind it. People who appreciate high tech DOHC horsepower rather than the "bigger is better" approach that powers most OHV American vehicles. Oh, and any girls who like Paul Walker.
So if you are looking for a intense, fun, highpowered ride of your life, see this movie. But if you are looking for a wonderfully scripted Oscar winning drama, go rent "The Piano" and try to keep from falling asleep.
It's a good (but not great) movie, and I found myself entertained from the first frame until the last. A good action movie has to have a decent plot and character development; unless you have the audience interested and/or emotionally involved, the big action sequences won't be exciting and are interesting only on a techinical level.
That said, Vin Diesel is the key to this movie. He is a phenominal actor and brings a great deal of presence to the character of Domininc Toretto. His mannerisms and understated acting make Toretto a more fully fleshed out charcter - a lesser actor couldn't have done this. Dominic Toretto is not a swaggering bully macho-man, but comes across as secure in himself and even (gasp!) deeply loving.
Comments have been made about Paul Walker's Keanu Reeves-esque delivery. I think Walker did a fine job as Brian O'Conner given what he had to work with...a character who *has* to come across as being something of a good natured, cruising through life, slacker-boy in order to believably infiltrate Toretto's team.
I wish the characters of Letty and Mia had been more fully fleshed out. One of the things I liked about these characters is that both of them were strong minded, independent women, who were not dominated by or subserviant to men. (Which is one example of the way both the male and female characters were more interesting and less cliched than most action movie characters usually are.)
So, we have decently developed characters whose motives and experiences we can relate to. Add a nice twist filled plot about an undercover police officer investigating a series of truck hijackings and cargo thefts.Read more ›
