What did you think of Fast and Furious 6 and/or The Hangover Part III?

May. 24, 2013by: JoBlo

Whether or not you're a fan of the FAST AND FURIOUS franchise, you can't deny that the films have turned into a monster juggernaut of fast cars, hot girls, tough guys and plenty of action -- and judging by their recent box-office successess, a franchise that isn't going anywhere any time soon (in fact, FAST 7 is already in the works!) But what matters most to us here is what movie fans think of the films, and specifically, the latest installment. Our own reviewer, Eric Walkuski, gave the film an 8/10 but we want to know what you thought of the film so please feel free to POST YOUR OWN REVIEW in our strike back section below (or to your Movie Fan Central profile) and we'll continue to update the Rotten Tomatoes and MFC reviews over the next few days as well.

Rotten Tomatoes: 134 reviews, avg score: 72%
Movie Fan Central : 9 reviews, avg score: 6.9/10

Most everyone involved in the original THE HANGOVER film would admit that the stunning success of the first movie was unexpected, to say the least. Unfortunately for this franchise, part 2 didn't really move away from the formula much (other than being set in Thailand), while early word on the street on part 3 is that it moved too much away from the formula. Aaaaaah, Hollywood...what a strange creature you are. Our own reviewer, Chris Bumbray, gave the film an 5/10 but we want to know what you thought of the film so please feel free to POST YOUR OWN REVIEW in our strike back section below (or to your Movie Fan Central profile) and we'll continue to update the Rotten Tomatoes and MFC reviews over the next few days as well.

Didn't think the insanity of Fast Five could be topped. but Furious Six went and shattered the sky! Like everyone said, after Fast and Furious (#4), Justin Lin just went and said "Fuck it!" and never looked back. Better and bigger set-pieces, more humor, and the best villains in the whole franchise (finally someone who can go toe-to-toe with the whole crew). It's hard to imagine the FnF franchise now without Lin, as he grew with it and all those years and took into it to the stratosphere.

Fast Six is one of the few, if only movies I will watch with pretty much awful acting across the board, shitty one liners and over the top eye-rolling action that just doesn't deter from the movie's awesomeness at all. They stopped taking themselves seriously in part 5 and just went BALLS OUT INSANE and it's paid off big time for the franchise.. pure summer popcorn fun at it's finest. Bring on part 7!

Saw H3 last night, seeing fast 6 tonight

Hangover 3: 6/10
My expectation were really low going in and I have to say I was kind of pleastantly suprised. It was not nearly has funny as the first 2 but i liked it much better than part 2 b/c it didnt use the same recycled plot and actually tried to do something different.
Dont leave right away other wise youll miss the funniest scene in the movie!

Saw Both

I saw both, and i left FF6 wanting to see FF7, thought action while over the top was great and lets be honest when you go to the movie if your looking for realism you should probably go to Star Trek.
Hangover 3 I left thinking "Meh", wasnt bad wasnt good, wasnt really funny wasnt really serious
was just kinda there.

the hangover part 3 was wicked good and really entertaining and in my opinion the best of the 3,now it may not have been the funniest but it had the best story and like i said it was really entertaining and the critics can suck it.
fast & Furious 6 was intense and action packed like crazy not to mention also entertaining as hell and just over the top summer fun.in my opinion they both were better than the movies that came before them and a great way to continue the summer movie season.my

Fast and Furious 6 was fun. Yes, Letty coming back was a very soap opera-ish retcon and some attempts at humour didn't play that well (the snooty British stereotype was a little indulgent) but it was big, it was silly, it was genuinely exciting and it was fun. This is one of those films where the laws of physics are but theories. Human bodies take improbable amounts of punishment, soaring or falling through the air to have falls broken by the metal roofs of cars; airstrip runways stretch into

This is one of those films where the laws of physics are but theories. Human bodies take improbable amounts of punishment, soaring or falling through the air to have falls broken by the metal roofs of cars; airstrip runways stretch into infinity but it's to Justin Lin's credit that I was willing to suspend disbelief enough to get swept along for the ride. Sure, there's noticeable CGI in parts, but there was some tactility to the collisions and impacts. I also like that there was a good mix of hand-to-hand combat with the car stunts; Gina Carano and Joe Taslim in particular got to show off what they know.

Saw both. Hangover 3: B and Fast 6: C-

Like the Fast and Futious movies evolved beyond just races, the Hangover series has evolved because director and shepherd of the series Todd Phillips appears to be making an extraordinary attempt to give comedy legitimacy by being equally (if not more so) based in dramatic thrills and some seriously dark, sincere character development. I loved it.

Fast Six simply felt redundant and bombastic.

Saw Hangover 3...

That was a bad movie. A few laughs here and there but overall it was garbage. 3 out of 10.

Maybe the most interesting weekend in the summer

Two big sequels..one getting praise and one getting shit on..

Personally, I didn't like Fast Five at all...I actually hated it but I will check out the new one.
I am interested to see "hangover 3" since they say it really changes its pace.

Hangover 3 review

Personally I liked the movie. It was a nice change than the regular hangover movie, i wasn't really annoyed by Ken Jeong (surprisingly) and Galifianakis was great as the main focus of this one. The laughs were there, not so much as a physical aspect as the first or second movie, but moreso on the "that's really weird/awkward" side of comedy (allen and tyler/carlos' scene). However, I felt myself walking out of the movie liking it, but not remembering any truly memorable scenes like in the first

However, I felt myself walking out of the movie liking it, but not remembering any truly memorable scenes like in the first two. Sure the story had more of a heist/action movie feel to it, but I had a lot of fun with it none the less. I'd rather see Todd Phillips try and take this film into new territories rather than the same ol bits.
It had a fitting end to the story of the Wolfpack and I hope this is the end of the series (there's really no other place to take it). Ultimately, I'll probably remember these 3 movies as one great,original concept, the second completely copying that concept bit for bit, and the third trying something new and coming out with a great story. 7/10

Only gripe i can make is that I could have used more John Goodman, and his Marshall character seemed like a watered down version of Walter from Big Lebowski and I think could have really made a bigger impact if he got to go more over the top with the character.

No one gets a hangover in a movie called "The Hangover Paert III"

Saw both these movies as a double feature!!
The Hangover III was devoid of big laughs. Bizarre amount of action for a comedy. Not very good. Second unnecessary sequel in this franchise.

Woah!

Crazy fun movie to watch. Don't look for realism here. Purely a fun, action packed summer blockbuster. The Rock and Vin Diesel double teaming a huge white dude! Gave me chills. And....the scene after the movie sets up an awesome sequel.

I loved the ridiculous nature of fast 6. It knows what it is and does not apologize for it. Fast loud and fun. 8/10. Probably going to see hangover III over the long weekend.

I thought Hangover Part III was funnier than the first sequel and was a big improvement after Hangover Part II. After seeing all three Hangover films, the original Hangover is still the best one though. The Hangover films aren't the greatest films in the world, but they do they're job in being funny and entertaining.

I would give Hangover 3 a solid 8 out of 10.

agree with ya soloist, Hangover 3 was a lot better than I had expected as well. I enjoyed the change from the first two in terms of story and comedic approach and couldn't ask for a better ending to the Wolfpack's story.

Who cares about the thumbs down, let the haters be haters. You got yourself one less thumbs down.
