Starting to feel like a video game.
on 17 November 2009
I finally got around to seeing this film.
What can I say that has not really been said before?
This was the movie to allow us to understand what happened before Tokyo Drift.
I was slightly disappointed to find Han was not in the movie as much as I was expecting and pretty near the start he says he is going to tokyo as if we did not know this. I was rather hoping for more of a set up than what was offered and felt like a last minute addition to tell us why he ends up in japan.
The tunnel sequences were by far some of the worst I have ever seen, the whole scenes played like a low budget video game.
I was also not really a fan of the sat nav idea that tells the drivers where to go, only finding it good and funny when he shouts at it to shut up. How many of us have ever done that!
There were times in the film that got me excited, but then there were the times when I groaned at the predictable dialogue and script and perhaps laughed at it for the wrong reasons.
If your a guy who likes fast cars and good looking women then this is for you. You will be entertained and it will fill a few plot holes and you will get to see your favorite characters again from the original film but I doubt your going to bother to watch it a 2nd time.
Though most of the cars end up getting trashed.
Same old same old then.
Perhaps no 5 will break the mold. Please do, it's starting to get boring.
