Look, people like this movie because it's got cars in it, they like movie with car races etc. That's OK, but if you like cars and like this movie, you don't like movies because anyone with a working brain can see just how dumb this film is. Not only is it shot in such a bland and generic way, but often a ugly look is achieved. Also, the characters are garbage, I mean Vin Diesel can be good when he isn't trying to be charismatic generic action man, which he is terrible at playing. All this movie tries to emhpasise is how kool street racing is, and how hot the chicks in it are. If some idiot wants to watch this stupid piece of garbage, then good for them, but I am shocked that there are seven of these films. This movie is too bad for anyone with intellectual genius to make any more of. If there was a 0 out of 10 option I would take it.
This is the one that started it all,is it more than just Point Break with cars?Let's find out.First,the good,the action,the race scenes are great,but there is also some good fist fights.The climax,it was intense and had some great stunts.The soundtrack,while it dates the film a bit,there's no denying it fits the tone perfectly.This may sound a bit stupid,but the editing was great,it had a fast pace that worked terrifically.I liked that there seemed to be little CGI involved,it seemed like there was a lot of practical stunts.The story,while it may not be the best it is well told.The best part,which sets this film apart from Point Break,is the characters,they feel real and are likable,even if most of them are criminals,the acting was good,even if some dialogue wasn't the best.Now,the bad,the pacing,while a movie like this doesn't need to be long,I feel like it went by a bit too fast.The ending,it was kind of dumb,but I did like how it completed Paul Walker's arc of the film.The villain,while he did have one good scene,he wasn't memorable at all.The script,due to the writing,the story's a bit hard to follow.Overall,The Fast and The Furious is a fun movie with great characters,but some bad scripting.
