Paul Walker looks furious while driving fast in the trailer for Vehicle 19

Jan. 3, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Paul Walker, the stoic star of the FAST AND FURIOUS franchise, has a steady stream of fairly low-rent actioners that cushion his time with Vin Diesel and co. with his latest being a South African rental car thriller.  No, you heard me right. 

VEHICLE 19 follows the exploits of a foreign traveler (Walker) who rents a car that has a number of items inside that will tie him to a web of corrupt local police.  But, they screwed up big time, because Walker can drive really fast.  The majority of the trailer is Walker grimmacing behind the wheel with some flipping cars and shattered glass tossed in for good measure.  Also, monotone cell phone calls. 

Might want to get extra insurance:

I've seen worse from the low-rent crowd, but I won't be storming a redbox to view this.  Paul Walker has his appeal and does just fine in the FAST AND FURIOUS films, but hasn't really transcended beyond the genre.  I guess that's fine, but it's got to get boring sitting behind the wheel for 70 percent of every movie. 

VEHICLE 19 will open sometime in 2013 and Walker will be seen back in his familiar duds with THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS 6 on May 24, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Walker is also a marine biology enthusiast and was on the NatGeo special Expedition Great White where he helped catch and tag great whites off the coast of Mexico. He's also a humanitarian who has helped earthquake victims in Chile and Haiti. Seems like a pretty good dude, eh?

Paul Walker needs to grow a moustache.
And maybe do a hockey movie.
And maybe smile more.

A Nigerian internet scam come true.

That was a great short movie though.

Paul Walker

Paul Walker has never been the atrocious actor the internet has unfairly accused him of being for the past decade (Hayden Christensen on the other hand...). He did what was required in the first two FAST &FURIOUS films, and while he was miscast as the shy guy who doesn't know how to talk to girls in the J.J. Abrams-penned JOYRIDE (Come on, it's Paul Walker! Girls throw their panties at him on sight!), he does just fine in the role. Wayne Kramer's cult crime film RUNNING SCARED proved that
Paul Walker has never been the atrocious actor the internet has unfairly accused him of being for the past decade (Hayden Christensen on the other hand...). He did what was required in the first two FAST &FURIOUS films, and while he was miscast as the shy guy who doesn't know how to talk to girls in the J.J. Abrams-penned JOYRIDE (Come on, it's Paul Walker! Girls throw their panties at him on sight!), he does just fine in the role. Wayne Kramer's cult crime film RUNNING SCARED proved that Walker is quite capable of delivering a powerhouse performance provided he has a good director guiding him (Kramer and Walker will reunite in the upcoming PAWN SHOP CHRONICLES), and his acting has really matured further since having worked with Kramer. Just compare his performances in the last two FAST & FURIOUS films to the original.

All that being said, this bland and lifeless trailer does no favors for the film it is supposed to be selling. They need to try a different editor.

This is the worst Trailer I've seen in a very long time. Bad editing, bad acting, lame story and to top it all, bad action-scenes. And I don't even mind Paul Walker.
