DOES VIN DIESEL GET AWAY IN A FAST CAR??
Just saw it, liked it.
If you liked 1, 4, and 5 you will like this one.

The quality of the movie as far as I am concerned will be directly proportional to Gal Gadot's screen time. So what's the score Suineg?
It's exactly what you want if you like the franchise. They have the formula, and they stick to it well. Some over the top action scenes, but that's what you expect.
The after credits scene...hahaha, oh man. Not sure how a franchise is better after the 6th movie than it was after the 1st, but this one is.
This movie is so over the top, yet awesome. It's not like a bad movie that is good because it is bad. This is a bad movie that is good, and a fun time shall be had by all. Remember in the Naked Gun how they went to go see Platoon and came out of the theater holding their guts and laughing? That is how everyone who watches this movie feels coming out of it.

Man, Michelle Rodriguez gives me the sickest boner.
Awesome fucking movie, I don't care how "bad" it is. Shit was entertaining as fuck.
Only two complaints here: the MacGuffin could have been done much better than it was and every time they stopped the action to talk about it it dragged the movie down, and I'm very disappointed that Justin Lin isn't coming back to finish the series off himself (especially given the setup for it in the credits scene). As far as I'm concerned it's his franchise regardless of the fact that he didn't start until the third movie. Having someone else direct the final chapter is unthinkable.
Hell, if they can make them as entertaining as the last few Fast and Furious movies, I can see them going 3 more. I agree with Vin when he talks about how the first three movies worked out. They were barely related to each other. At least they managed to work those into the stories, especially Tokyo Drift in 6.
These movies are getting better not worse which is good.

Awesome movie delivering exactly what you want. No fucking around. The whole theatre erupted in laughter and pure exultation when, well, if you've seen the movie you know when. Can't decide what was better: #6 itself or the end-credits promise of #7. Hilariously true, this franchise is better at #6 than it was at the start.
I liked all the Bourne movies.
Saw it tonight. Great movie. It was entertaining from beginning to end. Having the tie in into Tokyo Drift was a nice touch and sets up the next film nicely. This movie was definitely as good or better than the first.
What happened to the Brazilian dudes though? I agree, six is the best of the series so far. I'd say 6, 1, 5, 4, 3, 2 at this point.
They were mentioned briefly, talking about how they lost their money from F&F5 playing roulette in Monte Carlo. I didn't catch why that stopped them from coming back though.
As much as the asian in me loves 3...no way it's anything but 5th behind 1, 4, 5, and 6.
Question is since the franchise likes to keep bringing back a recurring cast will we get to see Paul Walker V1.5 AKA Lucas Black in 7?
Can't imagine he would say no to being a part of it if they asked. Fast 6 did almost $100 million, biggest opening for the franchise. Nice to see it decimate Hangover 3 as well.
It's still 10+ miles, which was completely ridiculous. But no matter, this movie had TONS of ridiculous loller-worthy shit, and still managed to be highly entertaining and not bother me in the slightest. These really are getting great.
Tyrese stole the movie imo. "nobody has to know about this" - my favorite saying when a group or raid fucks up in a MMO.
They done pissed off the Transporter, good stuff. A good opportunity to cut down on some of the cast.
I loved this movie. Yes the runway was about as long as a small city, but who cares. The whole movie defied physics on many levels, but it was so much fun to watch. I still rank 1 as the best and 5 and 6 were pretty much a tie. I just like how well rounded the 1st movie is. It held its own without tanks and bank vaults being dragged through a city. They certainly sold me on #7 with the last 30 seconds. I look forward to it.
I figure though that the 8th movie's villain will be this horrible lab accident gone wrong. It will be a huge blob of Testosterone and Adrenline that defies all laws of science.
I would so take Gina Carano over Michelle Rodriguez any day of the week.

The Rock's arms look like they are going to split open and another pair of arms are going to pop out and start flexing. Kind of like the Hulk's pants.
I thought I read/heard that F&F 7 is going to be the last one?
Never watched these so decided to d/l 1 - 5, and currently in the middle of 2. What the fuck happened? I mean Fast 1 wasn't Academy material or anything but it was what it was. This is a train wreck. Definitely looking forward to the others based on the rankings some people have thrown out (and the fact this series has gone 6 movies), but this is going to be tough to get through. There has to be a story behind what happened between the first, second, and rest of the series. Will investigate post marathon....
Nice West Coast Choppers shirt, bro
It's been a while, but iirc Vin was asked to come back for 2 and declined. And I think they already had the script and had to do a major rewrite. Think he decided to do XXX instead. No, not porn.
Oh shit XXX, completely forgot about that movie. Need to d/l that too and do a rewatch, never saw XXX 2 with Ice Cube though.
He wanted more money than Universal was willing to pay at the time.
A war is coming, I've seen it in my dreams. Fires sweeping over the Earth, bodies in the streets, cities turned to dust... retaliation.
Hollywood is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until everything you love is dead.
FF2 was by far the worst in the series. FF3: Tokyo Drift, is the most different from the rest, but I felt a pretty solid movie.
Who woulda bet 12 years ago, this will go down as one of the most successful movie series of all time.
I maintain that Tokyo Drift is a bit lame, but that there something very enjoyable about it taking the age old dance movie formula (success through hybridization - in dance movies it's classical with street, here us cars with japanese cars) to deliver a surprisingly positive message. I guess at that point Justin Lin, with a background in indie movies about identity and integration, still cared. Now it's all jarring one liners and fan service with no care at all for reckless endangerment or mass casualties. It manages to be entertaining, but it's a pretty dumb and ugly object.
Given that it's an action movie I'd say that the main characters did a pretty ok job of ensuring the audience knew that they were concerned about the public welfare concerns that the tank presented. If you're speaking strictly on principle that these movies tend to disregard the secondary victims, well, that's just the nature of the beast. I don't think these would sell hundred of millions of dollars worth of tickets if half the movie was Vin Diesel crying about all the people he should've been able to save if only he had done XYZ.
I don't feel they did such an ok job, considering Letty is slightly miffed that her boss is slaughtering dozens of people because 'why not' and that Dom's plan involve setting a cable across the highway. To be fair, they do react and mention it (and Lin adds shots of people exiting their vehicles), but that came a bit after I asked myself 'are we going to pretend these cars are empty?'
It's strange in a way, because I don't remember being bothered by that in the other three I saw (3,4,5), maybe because most of the chases/races in these movies happen in controlled environments (I can only remember the safe-pulling scene in... 5? as an exception). Here you have a mid-town chase, a mid-town race, a highway battle and it starts with a guy playing daredevil with his mate on his way to the birth of his first child... there is stylization, there is over the top and then there is that...
Just saw this and will say its probably my favorite... although its been a long while since I've seen the first one, so might have to rewatch that before making my final call. Thought this movie had a nice blend of everything, even if some of the action was over the top^2. I actually thought 5 was odd. I'd say up till then, it was the best 'movie' of the bunch, but the worst FF. It didn't have much in the way of car chases or races. Hell, they even had them go to a street race, set up for a race, and then not show it, skipping to the end to show the winner. This time around it had all the character of 5, with actual car chases thrown in, and (as far as I could tell) minimal CGI work. After 5 I was a bit nervous about this one, but I think they have finally nailed it with 6, and I look forward to them tweaking it more with 7th.
The interwebs. Redefining words daily.
Diesel had XXX, but was heavily invested in F&F so he asked his buddy (the villain from Pitch Black) to take his place in the Fast and Furious sequel. He shows up and they tell him "you're the bad guy. You're playing a white Hispanic drug lord". And he said he wanted to punch Vin Diesel in the face when he saw him again as he thought he was literally taking Diesel's spot as a good guy. They both had a good laugh about it. I thought it was pretty funny.
Thank you, it was driving me nuts and didn't have a chance to hit imdb.
Trailer for the next one is already out.
Id watch that lol.
2 was absolute horseshit.
I hated all the "Bro's" and stupid fucking 1 liners between the two main guys.
Got pulled in to see this masterpiece with the family. It was so bad it was good. I mean I just kept laughing the whole way through. - Anyone laugh there ass off when

VD not being in part 2 saved the franchise. By now going down with the ship, so to speak, coming back for part 4 was a bigger deal.
Just got around to seeing this yesterday. Really enjoyed it. It was another good action flick. As long as you expect the over-the-top stuff it's really enjoyable.
My rating would be 5>6>4>3. Never watched 2. Watched 1 FAR too long ago, though I remember I enjoyed it. Didn't really like Tokyo Drift, because it felt more like a cheap rip off of Initial D than a F&F movie.
hd rips are out, for anyone still interested. was more entertaining than expected, if you can live with all that over-the-top, unrealistic action.
Awesome, I was just thinking the other day I wondered when rips would be out, I hate cams.
I'm at work currently, is there one up on IPT?
First of all I have so many question, why does physics not work in this movie?
How long was that runway? Why did it take so long for the airplane to take off? why was the plane in take off mode for so long? why was the plan in one spot in the air for so long?
I mean really how long was that fucking runway?
"I have recently been examining all the known superstitions of the world, and do not find in our particular superstition (Christianity) one redeeming feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology.
Paranoia, it's been discussed to death. The answer is, it's a Fast and the Furious movie, it doesn't matter and shouldn't be thought about that deeply. Did you wack your brain over the lack of physics in the Driver movies?
I just finished watching it and i knew i was going to regret it it really pissed me off to no end the last 10 or so minutes
So I just watched it....it was pretty decent. I'm a bit disappointed that we wont be seeing Han in the next one, always liked the character.
Also, spanish cop chick that Dom was with....she's so hot its redamndiculious.
Watched it today, highly entertained the whole way through. Things being so ridiculous are what made it a good watch imo. Looking for to the next one with statham.
i finally got around to watching this. it was definitely entertaining, but i thought it was strange that none of the characters' investigations led to anything. paul walker and vin diesel go to the pawn shop only to hear that michelle rodriguez is the one who purchased the gun which is information they already know. and what was the point of smuggling paul walker into the prison to talk to the ex cartel leader?
Because he wanted to know what happened to her and why she was working for Shaw. The cartel leader worked with Shaw and knew more about him than anyone else they knew of.
The HD rip is very good quality, suprised its out so early. I enjoyed it, there are a lot of incredibly laughable parts like the forever runway or giving a terrorist a WMD to save 1 person but still, it was another over the top fast and furious done very well in the F&F style. I was really bummed Gisele died, she is worth a thousand Letty or Lefty or whatever the fuck her name is. And holy shit, Jason Statham, that is fucking insane!! I really thought they were gonna try to pull a clever switcheroo and have the Rock be the mole too, although that really wouldn't make any sense. I did think it was pretty strange that the drug lord told Brian that the bad guy has a mole, and he didn't bother telling anyone else.
Beautiful location shots in Spain, and c'mon who wasn't laughing with tears when Rock shows up to fight Russian Rock
I knew it in the last movie she would eventually die or leave as she was no where to be seen with Tokyo Drift.
Here's the hierarchy: you'd fuck Letty in the backseat of the car, Elena on the hood, Gisele in the house. Pass on Riley, because you don't stick your dick in crazy.
michelle_rodriguez - 12.jpg
Oh, and the other one in the movie - Gina Carano.
UNNNNF. I wouldn't even resist them beating me up.
Gina is different. Michelle Rodriguez is gross though.
Thought it was funny as hell. Didn't really care for Gisele dying, she was particularly awesome in 5, and they could have just as easily done some sort of falling out between the two of them instead of just killing her off to maintain continuity with Tokyo Drift. And given the retarded shit that people tend to survive in movies like this, I find it completely impossible to believe that she died just from falling off the cars onto the tarmac no matter how fast they were going.
If Letty could survive F&F4, I see no reason why Han couldn't have managed to survive the crash in Tokyo Drift, they make a point in keeping the camera focused on Statham when he's walking away and don't show Han at all.
Michelle Rodriguez is ok. I really like breasts and a good ass. Gina on the other hand is an example of a fine woman. I would spar her just so she would kick my ass.
I never really understood the bad guys plot either, he was building a superbomb that could disable a countrys electronics for 24 hours? And he needed a chip that's embedded in thousands of NATO tanks? Which required him to clear out Scotland Yard, which has the location of NATO tanks because... not to mention, why didn't he just yank the chip out of the tank the second they got it and then choppered out of there, but then I guess we would never have seen the crazy (and yet creepy due to all the offscreen civilian deaths) tank vs race cars scene, not to mention XXX's leap of faith.
yeah i know its F&F the story is just a vehicle for fast cars, hot women, and guns. I don't even mind the bad guys story made little sense, I just wished he put a bullet in Michelle Rodriguez early in the movie.
Sure the story has plot holes and the runway was 27 miles long, but I liked this better than "Man of Steel" perhaps because I enjoyed the characters more, even if the laws of physics are thrown out.
Those little F1 looking "ramp" cars were pretty awesome.
That was one of the stunts that made me think " is that possible?" . Could a car designed like the F1 ramp car actually face a vehicle and, while both going at a fast rate towards each other, lift the oncoming car over it or out of the way? I want Mythbusters to run the test.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say yes, but in order for it to both be durable enough to survive those impacts and still have the necessary speed and handling, they would be absurdly expensive.
Really? Forgetting 2 Fast 2 Furious I see.
