Is this film good then?
A man of few words, I like it.
...uh... what was the question again?...
. . . ? . . .
I need to know if my copy is faulty. It does not appear scratched or anything and has a great DTS soundtrack that is very detailed and dynamic, but it does seem to be missing the following....
a detailed story
and a fair bit of script
its an ok film but NOT a great one, it lacks far too much and relies too much on the cars. The lead roles seem to have very good potential but its just not used. Everything just seems too neat and tidy, there never seems to be any suspense and then the film just seems to end.
I have to say that I've been giving this film serious thought regarding adding it to my collection....not particularly fussed about plot/acting in this instance as I'll just be watching it for the cars/stunts etc....after all, this film has got "No Brainer" written all over it. If I want plot and acting, I'll dust off me copies of The Godfather/Citizen Kane/Maltese Falcon.
Are the action scenes plentiful and well executed?
Im probably one of THE biggest no brainer movie fans around, some of most watched DVDs include such "classics" as...
Far too many Arnie movies
A fair few Van Dam movies
and even Steven Seagal
so I was hoping fast and furious would fit into these nicely, but for me it just not seem to work. It takes itself far too seriously and to be honest there is not THAT much real action to speak of. All the car chases and stunts just seem far to clean and tidy.
If you want an all out action-no brainer get DRIVE, still a far to unknown movie that deserves to be seen by all
