Following from my previous post on the movie Knowing, my second movie which I watched yesterday was Fast & Furious 4. I added the “4″ in there to avoid confusion with the 1st movie in the series with a similar name. The movie in Malaysia and Singapore is also named with a “4″. I mainly watched this movie because of it’s guaranteed entertainment entertainment level based on it’s predecessors and not to mention the hot cars.
One thing I liked about this movie was the cast which was totally original (Michelle Rodriguez having about 15mins of screen time..) Other than that, sadly I have to say that this movie didn’t created an impact as the rest of the movies in the series. I can only remember 2 major road sequences. 1st sequence was pretty thrilling, as they try to rob an oil tanker, featuring the Asian character Han from the 3rd part, Tokyo Drift. This movie takes place in the time line after 2Fast 2 Furious and Tokyo Drift.
One other major race (one and only, I would say) was done with a new concept, very similar to what you experience in video games such as Midnight Club. Every racer has he’s own GPS and the route is determined through it. To make it more thrilling, there are no road closures, meaning the race takes place amongst other road users!
Like I mentioned before, I didn’t think this movie was better than the other in the series, probably because I expected more cars. This part focused more in storyline, less in cars or official races. Anyways, if you fancy watching the original cast, then do catch it on the big screen.
