Faster than a 10 second car.
The Fast and the Furious.
Yes, part one. I only just saw it. See I wasn’t a big fan of this series. In fact, I wasn’t a big fan of Vin Diesel either. I liked Pitch Black because that was a horror/scifi and I liked his character, Riddick, but he was part of a bigger cast and it wasn’t so much just about him. But Fast and Furious and XXX weren’t my thing. Although, I own XXX – still haven’t seen it, and my wife gave me FATF I never watched them.
It was only after Chronicles of Riddick that I really liked Vin Diesel. See I don’t jump on bandwagons just cause there is a new star out there. Same as Leo Dicaprio, or Tom Cruise. They gotta pay their dues first and Vin paid them with Riddick. See he had 3 potential series going, XXX, FATF or Riddick. He chose to continue Riddick since Vin was more into scifi and fantasy, than into action, something I can relate to, and I think a lot of the geek community really liked that choice. Anyway, I decided to go back and watch some of the Vin movies I never saw.
I have to admit that I really enjoyed this movie big time! The story was pretty good and the action was nice too! I am really surprised that I liked it so much. I actually own Tokyo Drift, Vin only makes a cameo, but I got that one cause the cars looked pretty sick and anything in Japan is automatically great! Plus Lil Bow Wow had an Incredible Hulk car – that’s one way to get me on board.
But all in all, this first one was much better than Tokyo Drift, story wise. Sure the cars weren’t as cool, but I really liked Paul Walker and Vin Diesel in this movie!
I know everyone saw it, so no point in recommending it, but ill get part 2 and 4 and see Fast Five – the Rock vs Vin Diesel will be cool!
