I love the F&F franchise. I really do. The car racing, the car fronting, the car chasing and the background crime story. All in wonderful day glow imagery. Brilliant. Needless to say, I was very excited about the arrival of number 4 in the series. Even Vin was back in the lead after his cameo in number 3.
Alas all the hype about the reuniting of the original team was a big let down in the end. A bitch crazy opening scene was all there really was to get excited about. It was stupid enough to send out warnings. Where were the colourful cars, where were the watchable car chases? Through underground caves in the dark does not work.
Not so much a bad film as a poor addition to the franchise, like Alien Resurrection, Terminator3, Home Alone 3 &4 (who knows, never bothered to watch em, but no Culkin and no Christmas so no point). Thing is, sequels of popcorn movies should simply be more of the same for me.
