To be fair on Walker, The fast & furious films don't call for Oscar calibre acting, they are designed for one thing and one thing only and that is to make LOADS OF MONEY!

It would of been interesting to see him extend his acting range though, i'll give you that.

I have neg pyschosis....
and you know Tetro I'm MAAAD me.
Just the other day I used the butter knife in the marmite jar!
I leave the toilet seat up and knock on next door's door then run back into mine.
Whoevers upped me on the vote....your my type of person.
So Paul Walker's "beautiful" to look at.
I thought he was pretty bland looking,well compared to my chiselled windswept features.
I can only see one way for me on this forum.....and that's down.
I could have a post by post breakdown...
"I will be the judge of that...."ohhhhhh matron.
Is that the Disney flick with the huskies?
In no way shape or form would he have become an A lister.Too late in the day and I would imagine overlooked by casting agents.He would've just continued making countless Furious sequels and reliable,straight to dvd stodge jobs.

True, but the other movies he did didn't call for Oscar calibre acting either. I wish he had picked the right movies that would have required him to extend his acting range. His final movie " Hours " shows he could shine if he was given something to stretch himself. It was good to see him do something other than drive a car.

Paul walker's character Bryan got into a time machine not long after the last furious film's story and came out about two decades later and now is played by Kurt russell. Have i got the plot for the next furious film right? With this franchise, It wouldn't suprise me if i was.

James Wann is directing the next F&F film, he is one of my favourite directors, although he has only really done Horror, not sure what his F&F would be like?

Mind you horror and F&F may work, Paul Walker as a zombie ? ...(too soon?)

That's just not funny (Yes I have seen Ghost, and that's why I don't find it funny)

But he would be more convincing in sequel I bet?

Has anyone seen the Youtube stuff about the Illuminati killing Paul Walker?? You couldn't make it up

What were they so furious about anyway? Was that ever revealed? Maybe they were keeping it until the next F&F. I suspect it was federal tax law. I don't know what it was but it felt it was definitely leaning that way.

close Tetro it was a special import tax placed on neon strip lights and sleeveless shirts !

Did anyone else notice 'Fast and The Furious' is just 'Point Break' but with Cars instead of Surf boards ?

In reply to an earlier post on 3 Feb 2014 09:54:25 GMT
Noticed that after watching the first film. Even bigger difference though Bauer is that Point break is a far better film;)

A much better film , despite it starring Keanu "The Plank" Reeves, a remarkable achievement.

reeves was hardly wooden during his Bill n Ted days lol

clearly the directors and casting units prefer his style over idiotic flamboyance and the A-typical hollywood hardman imo

In reply to an earlier post on 3 Feb 2014 13:43:20 GMT
For me his acting style defo fits the role of an undercover agent masquerading as a 'surfer dude in Point break and again as a cocky L.A.P.D. cop in Speed and a computer programmer/hacker in The matrix.

He is not always wooden. In Speed and Point Break he is far from being a " plank ". He is not great but he is capable of conveying emotions ( watch The Lake House ) and he has comedic abilities ( Bill And Ted, I Love You To Death and Parenthood ).

woah .. I appeared to have upset the Keanu Reeves fan club ; )

I was only joking lads, I'm not a massive fan , but I have enjoyed the odd film of his. Most of those mentioned above (not The Lake House though- I've not seen it, as I try not to watch remakes like this until ive seen the original, plus ive heard it wasn't done well)
