FAST AND FURIOUS (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Fast and Furious
begins with fast action as Dominic Toretto and his gang steal gas tankers from the back of a moving tractor truck. The movie quickly moves through murder, revenge, and Mexican drug dealing with fast racing and some of the film industry’s most creative stunts. With this film, Director Justin Lin recoups The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and sets the series up for a desired number five sequel. This film is part 4 in the movie series and this series will be in competition with Star Wars and Harry Potter for number of movie sequels made.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This is much better than part 3 and hopefully 5 will be better still. This film is back to the original plotline of the other films and is better written and portrayed. This movie works for fans of the Fast and Furious franchise. Good work for all involved in this film. It’s a fast moving thriller.
