Fast and Furious film series review


Fast and Furious film series review 



The fast and the furious: This movie is about an undercover cop name Brian trying to bust a gang of thief’s lead by Toretto, this gang is also involve in street racing. Things get difficult when he starts to bond with this gang so he has to decide to turn them in or not? This movie is basically Point Break with cars. I buy the connection Brian made with this gang. That’s the themes of this movie family and loyalty. I don't like Toretto's girlfriend there is a different between being a tough woman and sounding like a tough woman. This is a OK movie I would recommend this if you like Point Break and No Man’s Land.     
Rating = Rental 



2 Fast 2 Furious: Wow you call this a sequel; I mean most of the original cast is not in this movie. No wonder this movie won Razzies. This film is about Brian who is now a fugitive after what he did in the last movie, in order to clean his record he has to help the U.S Custom agent to stop a drug lord. Brain does this with the help of an old friend name Roman. This is more of a spinoff then a sequel. I don't like the interaction between Brain and Roman because talk and at like teenagers. I'm sorry there is nothing salvageable about this movie, it looks like some that worked at the Lifetime network did this movie. This movie is bland flat bland, this should have been a direct to DVD release.      
Rating = Trash
Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift: How is this movie a part of this franchise, I mean none of the characters from the previous are in this movie are we being punked? This film is centered on a boy name Sean who was sent to Tokyo Japen because of his troubled past, during his time Japan he meets someone name Twinke that introduce him to a new type of street racing called Drift that got him into more troubled. So Sean has to get out of his dilemma plus earn the respect of his peers.

 At first I didn't think this film was part of this franchise until I saw a familiar face in this film, then I learn that this film is the last film in this series what. Are we being punked agian, what's the point of this? Why would they release this film as the third film and treat it as the third, by doing this you are taking away the suprise of whats going to happen in the earlier films. I like the characters Twinke and Hans, that's the only good thing I can say about this movie. I don't like Sean the main character he's just so bland. I also don't like the love interest I can't tell if she's into Sean or not. Bottom line this movie should also be passed as a spinoff.         
Rating = Trash


Fast and Furious: Finally an actual sequel to this series, however this isn’t a worthy sequel. This film takes place five years after the first movie and Brain is now a FBI agent, Brain is looking for a drug lord name Braga. Meanwhile Toretto is on a manhunt to find Braga as will why you have to watch the movie to find out. So they have to work together to found him and Brain try’s to reconcile with Toretto and the others. This film has a serious tone then the other films in this series. The problem I have with this movie is Toretto I mean he is not consistent in the last act. The good thing I can say about this movie is that it has cars and attractive women, is that all this series has to offer? I mean if I want to see cars I would go to a car show, if I want to see women in bikinis I would go to the beach. Don’t give me that I’m not a car race person it’s not about that this is a movie; a movie needs stories and characters. I appreciate what they are trying to do here but they fell short.      
Rating = Trash 
Fast Five: this is a film targeted for guys, because this film has action, cars and lots of eye candy sorry Ladies. The plot is this the gang is working for a mob boss in Rio, the job goes wrong so they decide to rob him of all his worth. Meanwhile a bounty Hunter name Hobbs is hire to bring Toretto and his gang to justice. I agree with the masses on this, this is the best one of the series. Fans of this series complain that there is not street race theme in this film, well there wasn’t a lot of that in the other film.
The first film had two street races.
The second film had two.
The third I mean the last film had three.
The third film had one.
 This movie has the same theme as the first movie that is family. I wish that this one was the last one in this Franchise, because the way this one ended was okay. I like the Hobb character because he reminds me of Tommy Lee Jones’s character in The Fugitive.  If you like Heist films you will like this. I had a problem with how they perform the heist, plus there is on one to root for.
Rating = Average 

Fast and Furious 6: Is it me or is this series starting to get better? The film takes place after the previous film, Torretto and the other are enjoying there separate lives. Meanwhile Hobb goes to Toretto for help he needs his crew to help him stop another gang that is causing problems; in exchange for their help there criminal records will be wiped clean. I like the chase scene better than the previous films. The theme in this movie is once again family, I just didn't get since of that, I mean I wish that everyone in this group would react when something happens to them good or bad. The problems a have with this movie is that they bring back a character that we thought died in the fourth I mean third film, the explanation why this character is live is a cop out. Also this movie is connected to the third film. I have a problem with Toretto when he learn that this character is alive he did something that made him look like a jerk. It looks like they regret making Tokyo Drift because this movie did something to ignore that movie; also there are intelligent insulting moments in the film, and I didn’t buy the car race scene. Bottom line is this is an enjoyable film; the ending wasted as good as the previous film.

Rating = Average
