4th Fast & Furious

Apr. 11, 2007by: James Thoo
I'm one of those guys that just doesn't give a flying squirrel about cars. I drive one, but I don't care what rims, paint job or spoiler it has, if it gets me from one place to another, then I'm happy. Maybe that's why I never really got into the whole THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS thing. But the fact of the matter is the movies make a ton of money. Ostensibly standards haven't really slipped much, still the same action, same high-powered cars, same hot broads standing around the cars for no apparent reason, but when you break it down, you realise that by the third film the franchise has lost Paul Walker and Vin Diesel and gained Lil Bow Wow.

To this end, it's reported that Chris Morgan (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT) has been hired to pen the fourth in the series. It's got to the point now where if you slap the words 'Fast' and 'Furious' on a picture of a flashy car people are going to flood the cinemas, so this looks like basically a win-win. LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD has forced me to have faith in the fourth installments of a franchise and who knows, maybe if Vin Diesel (who needs a hit) can be persuaded to come back, maybe the movie will be something.

Thank the film makers

Ok so you have to thank the film makers for making the third movie. The first two films got impressionalbe fans street racing doing all the crazy shit that they do. I.E. ramping cars onto boats and what not.
And then in 3 fast 3 furious the producers try and kill all of the people who streetrace. But how you ask, by telling them to drive sideways.
So whose left to go see the fourth one?

In all fairness...

SPOILER WARNING! When you said by the 3rd film, Paul Walker and Vin Diesel were gone, but Vin was in the third one, if only for a minute! :)

My best guess is: they're going DUB style this time...some big a$$ Cadillacs and Rolls cruising at high speed...guns blazin', T&A, some angry jamaicans and all set!

hmmm

i dont care who they got, if they got back vin i would be there... and tokyo drift was actually pretty good, i didnt think it would be but i did. i only watched it when i found out the kid from american gothic and slingblade was in it, and i was curious as to what drifting was, and i was pleasantly surprized. bow wow wasnt even as annoying as i thought he would be. i couldnt stand tyrese in the second one though, even though it was still a decent movie.

Why didn't they just slap the Fast and the Furious title on Redline and call it a day? If had been called TFATF: Redline, would anyone have noticed?

HELL NO

Fast And The Furious was totally awesome as PAUL WALKER and VIN DIESEL took the movie with high performances and great action.

When the second version came out 2 Fast 2 Furious it was awesome as well, because it had PAUL WALKER still in it and also this time "Tyrese Gibson" they worked perfectly in the movie.

I never liked TOKYO DRIFT and I know it sucks as I never seen it.

They will have lil Bow Wow for the fourth version,, hell no. They totally killed the franchise they better

Not so fast

let them make the setting in florence, arizona and have it star ben stiller and all his cronies that tend to cameo his movies...and make the cops that chase stiller and gang be the great deputies from the Reno Sheriff department. Dangle would kick some serious ass
