This was the one Fast & Furious movie that I didn't like! It featured some pretty amazing stunts, and it's a shame it did, because apart from those stunts it just didn't manage to contain that traditional Fast-And-Furious-typical tension and adrenaline. The pace was a bit too much, it often felt fake and artificial, the chases on car as well as on foot, and it felt like they tried too much to 'suit up' and make something professional, when they should really have stuck to their roots and kept going on the pave they paved out with their first two. Or why not the third one? The third one was great. It took the series in a new direction, and though this does a good job at filling in a gap and introducing some of these characters in conjunction to those characters, and making it all part of a bigger whole - this entire movie still feels like an entire loose end. It's like a wasted part of the franchise, and it's not just because Letty dies.
It's watchable, it's good, it has memorable characters and a script that would've been great under the right circumstances of filming, but it's not really Fast & Furious like I love and cherish it.
rated 4/5: fo shizzle
