They are actually considering killing off Walker's character,just so not to ruin the franchise.
I think that would be perverse.
Not to mention glib.

John Ford's last film, "7 Women", has its admirers. Buster Keaton's "Seven Chances" is great.

Bauer geez dude the films were making a hell of a lot of money, the studio will keep on making them until that changes I bet.

' THEY were speeding, breaking the law... '

Paul was the passenger. He was killed by the driver. The driver could also have killed other motorists and pedestrians. It is unfair to blame Paul for the car crash. What happened to him wasn't his fault. If the driver had got out of the car alive and Paul hadn't made it, the driver would have been held responsible for Paul's death. He would have been charged with manslaughter.
Even if the two men were pulled out of the car before it burst into flames they would have probably died of their injuries in hospital.
It is better for Paul to be dead. He would have been paralysed and stuck in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. It would have even more upsetting for his daughter to see him in that state. I feel sorry for him as well as the Scottish victims. He didn't deserve to die like this. I don't feel sorry for the driver who was responsible for his death. He was the one who was speeding and putting his own life and Paul's and the lives of other motorists and pedestrians in danger.

RIP, Paul. You will be missed.

i know he was the passenger, but like any person who is in a car with a bad driver who is speeding, you would tell them to slow down and stop being stupid.
im sure they were all having a great time racing the dudes sports car down some road at a not very busy time, it matters not that he was the passenger. you still have the ability to be safe as a passenger, but he didnt care.

' He didn't care '.

You don't know Paul didn't care that the driver was speeding? Nobody knows what actually happened. Some people said Paul encouraged him to speed because he was a thrill seeker. Nobody knows for sure he did. Nobody knows why the driver was speeding. We will never know. Anyway he is the one to blame for Paul's death.

I'm glad to hear that Paul's character will not be killed off in the 7th instalment of F&F.

if nobody knows what really happend, how can you blame the driver for pauls death? maybe a deer ran out in the road and he swerved to avoid hitting it. you just contradicted your own argument.

you are basing his death on the logical assumption that the driver was to blame. i am suggesting the logicalitiy that if your in a speeding car and are not happy about it or dont want your life to end in a car wreck, you get the car to slow down and not crash. if they are friends then the driver would have done that, occams razor would suggest that that they were both happy to be driving recklessly so therefore you cant be overly sad when one of them ends up dead.

This should serve as a testament to drive safely rather then being a reckless idiot who end up crushed and burnt.I don't really have no sympathy.
Nothing wrong with the car.
100 mph.
Couple of irresponsible fools who paid a dear price for their gigantic arrogance and stupidity.
Kinjoking you are totally right and rational,unfortunately what you have here are besotted fans blinded by fame and celebrity and a rather meathead franchise.
To try and insinuate Walker was some protesting passenger being held against his will is frankly desperate and embarrassing.
We hear this countless,countless times....twits getting behind wheels,peversely thinking they are immortal and then predictably dying in it has to be said a pathetic fashion.Literally just a pair of teeth.
What I am glad about is they did not hurt anyone else.
But because celebrities are involved suddenly excuses are made,behaviours accepted.
Wake up.Smell some coffee and please DRIVE SAFELY.

Indeed, and it's happening all the time. Some boy racer wrote off our car last year. Luckily it was parked up outside the house with nobody in it but get this.... he was coming from the opposite direction and somehow managed to take out our passenger side, y'know the side next to the kerb. Ours was a big sturdy people carrier tank-like thing, and he must have been really going some to do that sorta damage. Him and friends emerged from his smoking car shaken but unhurt. If anybody, even God forbid, our kids, was walking along the path at that time, they wun't have had a chance.
All this in the middle of the afternoon! The **** told the law he fell asleep at the wheel. Yeah, course he did.

You are suggesting that Paul was also to blame for the tragedy. You made the assumption that he didn't care and wasn't trying to tell the driver to slow down. How do you know? You were not in the car with them. Granted, it is possible that he wasn't trying to stop him because he was a thrill seeker but you can't say that's what happened without anything to back up your theory. Anyway the driver was responsible for his own death and Paul's because he was the one who was speeding and was putting his own life and Paul's in danger. I am not making excuses for Paul. Passengers are killed by reckless drivers and it is not necessarily their fault. Even if you tell a driver to slow down they won't listen to you because they think the highway code doesn't apply to them.

It makes me laugh all this talk of "theory".
I am talking about the facts of the car being found crushed like a sardine can.Of course I don't know the conversation how could I??
I can say what happened.There are pictures.....rephrase what you are saying.
You are completely making excuses for Paul.
Which I can are obviously a fan and it must be horrible to lose someone you'd admire.
I think you are getting the wrong end of the stick with me.This case is not a conspiracy theory,there are not exactly multitudes of angles when it comes to a fireballed Porsche.
Sadly it's rather predictable.
If anything as horrible as it sounds I see this situation more from anger at the sheer stupidity and loss of life.A child is without her father.I don't know who said what but I am guessing Walker and driver are ABSOLUTELY no strangers to either racing around or thrill seeking.
I accept millions love the Fast franchise but keep cars spinning through the air as purely visceral escapist fun.There seems to be a frightening distance nowadays between people's perception of fantasy and reality.
If you are a thrill seeker select to do your thrills in a safe and controlled environment.
If you are even more edgy then that and have a slight death wish fine go ahead but just make sure you are far away from any fellow human being you could hurt in any shape way or form.
I see young lads hurtling down our road in their souped up cars and all I think is you dangerous idiot.
People need to remember death is always near and it's not always someone else.
Jordan as stated I understood your point but really it's rather trite to start talking of conspiracy and unbelievably contradictive to state none of us know yet you do and it the driver is all to blame.
I think you know deep down Walker sat in the car most probably whooping and hollering.
Until it crashed.

Whether Paul told the driver to slow down or not is irrelevant. The point is that the car crash was not his doing since he wasn't driving the car. I don't understand why you blame him for the tragedy. He was killed by a reckless driver. The driver was to blame for the car crash and his own death and Paul's. As a driver you are responsible for your own safety and the safety of your passenger(s ). If you are speeding you put yourself and your passenger(s) at risk of getting killed in a car crash. If an accident happens it is the driver's fault. I like Paul Walker, but even as a fan I wouldn't have condoned his reckless driving if he had been on the driver's seat.

Thank you for making it clear that the car crash wasn't Paul's fault. Granted, he may have been complicit. As I said, it is a possibility because I heard he was an adrenaline junkie. Of course, you have the right to say to the driver:' slow down, you're going to get us both killed.' Ok, you have this feeling that Paul and the driver were complicit in the idea of driving a car full throttle down a strip known for twit driving. You might be right, but we will never know if he let the driver drive the car at a high speed because he was enjoying the ride or if he climbed in with his friend completely unawares and asked him to slow down but it was too late. You might be right, his racer friend wanted to impress a movie star with his driving skills. Anyway, we will never know exactly why his friend was speeding. Complicit or not, PW wasn't responsible for the car crash. Personally I see it as a tragedy. He lost his life due to his friend's reckless driving. Very sad.
