Review
A really excellent start of the action movie series, THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS manages to give a gritty and slick look that its director Rob Cohen pulled off with the hybrid of interesting camera angles and style, but I think that FAST & FURIOUS 5 (click here) is the best and the fastest of all films. This film delivers a bonanza of mean cars, cool music, stunt driving and let's not forget the A-list cast of Paul Walker, Vinny Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez.

Need I say more? Well, it has all the qualities needed to take care of your speed-racing action movie crave. For those who enjoy this film, you will be happy to know that a sixth instalment is currently in the works.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever

  1. Believe or not, I have not actually seen any of the Fast and the Furious movies. Only the first 10 minutes of the first one a very long time ago, but I think I will check it out.

  2. This is a cheesy-as-hell flick but it's also a lot of fun and there's nothing wrong with some good, macho fun. Good review.
