    Please let me know what you think of The Fast and the Furious, I have heard from a few people that it is quite good, with great sound. I have also read a few reviews saying it is pants.

    fast and the furious is terrible, apparantly it has great 5.1 sound, but the acting, plot and direction are pants.

    I hated the lead 'paul walker' he made keanu reeves look like laurence olivier, I couldn't stand michelle 'one-facial expression' rodriegez and I didn't even like Vin Diesel in it whereas I usually like him.

    Its one of those set piece action films sort of like top-gun but instead of jizzing over F15s you're supposed to cream your pants over toyotas and that's just silly.

    And WHSmiths are doing it £17.99 buy one get one free.

    I liked the film but it's completely throwaway, airheaded, lightweight nonsense. Basically Point Break with cars.

    In other words....you can't go wrong.:D
    But don't blame me if you hate it, mcmullanbrush;)

    It has a DTS + 5.1. Its a fun movie with tons of flash cars and special fx. Good movie specially if you into fast cars and stuff, well worth it for tenner I'll say.

    How dare you! Point Break is a way of life not a film. Fast and the Furious was mind-numbingly dumb... don't get me wrong I like loud, dumb films but this was rubbish.

    I usually hate over the top american mainstreamers and i couldn't help but enjoy this film. It was great and the sound is ridiculously over the top.
    Fantastic.

    I meant the plot was pretty much the same, as in the "cop goes undercover in gang of baddies" kind of way.
    I couldn't possibly compare the spiritual journey that is Point Break with the "geezers racing cars flick" that is The Fart and The Furious, now could I?:eek:

    Hot cars, hot girls..........what more do you need?
    Picture and sound really good, story a no-brainer but I liked it anyway, not really into Judi Dench.

    TFATF is a top film with good picture and better sound check out when Don starts up the Dodge near the end it has the most stomach churning bass I have ever heard:eek:
    also I have the Point break DVD on Reg 1 DTS and that also is a good film.

    TFATF was probably one of the best films of the year. I was blown away by the sound. But once you've watched it a couple of times, its funny how bad the editing is! It's a great film though. and the dvd was packed with features too

    Oh and, Rob Cohen lied to us!!

    In the director's commentry he explains that all the questions left unanswered will be answered in the sequel - but that ain't gonna happen no more!!

    The sequel will be naff! You can't do a FATF without Vin Diesel.
