Default 'Fast & Furious' - High-Def Digest Review

Drew has reviewed 'Fast & Furious.' He's a fan, and as such, he really enjoyed this fourth installment in the franchise. This Blu-ray has mighty video, demo-disc audio, and plenty of fuel injected extras. Highly recommended.

Thank you for telling me that I will NOT like "Fast & Furious". Because, if that's your reference-point as the best film in the series, ...and the same director that did 3 did part 4 ....

Yeah, I'm a big fan of the first movie, and found the 2nd movie to be moderately enjoyable. However, Tokyo Drift was kinda "meh," and this fourth movie was a big stinker for me.

Fast and Furious is BY FAR the most disappointing movie for me this year. Its just so BORING, and the "original cast" gimmick is a bunch of bull shit too...because they even rip the viewer off on that point.

2 out of 5 for this movie...at most.

Good to see Universal treated 4 Fast 4 Furious well.

I stayed away due to horrible reviews even though I enjoyed the 1st and especially the 3rd on a purely guilty pleasure level.

You know you loved the soundtrack for Tokyo Drift. Don't even lie.

I'm with Drew. This movie was a blast... silly at times... but a genuine blast! I'll definitely be picking this one up.

The 4th movie was great. This is my most wanted Blu of the year.

Im glad it got a good review.

1st, 4th, 3rd and then 2nd one. Thats the order I rank them. The 2nd one was HORRIBLE but they other 3 I did enjoy.

Same for me as far as ranking although I thought 3 was just ok. I'll pick this up as some as I find a good deal on it. Glad they included more muscle cars.

Tokyo Drift was fairly terrible. Caleb Temple (who gets that reference ) didn't help out much with just a godawful script and pointless special effects to prop up the rest of the film. CG car chases should be banned, they offer absolutely zero excitement or spectacle. I have yet to see "Fast and Furious" but count me as another person who's just been put off it...

I enjoyed all of them, so this is a definite buy for me on launch.
