I'm glad that I never listen to film critics!
on 30 July 2015
I'm glad that I never listen to film critics! This film got a bad Critical response from Rotten Tomatoes but then again if we only watched films that critics like, the world would be a very dark place indeed... Now onto the film... this isn't a fast and furious wannabe, I found the film fun, creative and had a great concept of speed (something I always hated about the NOS filled early F&F franchise. The only thing better than the camera angles is the sound track... from Marshal Motors to Switching Seats, the music gives the film real personality.
The cast is again brilliant, every actor nails the character they play.. Tobey's crew gives an impression that they really have been lifelong friends way before the film starts.. The love interest of Toby is Julia Maddon played by Imogen Poots, again hats off to the producer, 1) because I fancy her and 2) because her character actually brings a personality to the film as well as just a pretty face..
The clothing department might have been picked out by a guy straight out of a media course (bad guy wears black and good guys wear white right?) and some of the stunts do stretch the laws of physics.. I'm not talking about the grasshopper stunt, but rather the police car axle trick.. But that's the movies and I wouldn’t have it any other way...
