Fast & Furious

When the strapline for a film is "New Model, Original Parts", you have to laugh. 4 of the cast from the original Fast & Furious return for this fourth installment in the petrolheads favourite series of films. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster are all back in this simple tale of revenge and fast cars.

I really wasn't expecting much from this film, so I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't utterly useless. Diesel acts as only Diesel can, while Walker isn't trying to act for once, much to the film's benefit. Rodriguez is rough and tumble as always while Brewster provides the required emotion and prettiness.

What this film lacks is car porn. For a series of films that are all about cars and driving fast, there aren't enough scenes of hot cars and mad races. It's a pity, but overall the film works and it's undoubtedly going to draw in a crowd.
