Review: Times of India
Eight movies into ‘Fast and Furious’, one would think the testosterone-fueled concept of speeding cars that defy the laws of physics would begin to start losing steam. But Vin Diesel with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Jason Statham and crew manage to keep our eyes glued to the screen just for the sheer spectacle of complete mayhem that ensues.
The franchise does try to do things a bit differently this time around. Since Dominic Toretto is virtually untouchable behind the wheel, turning him against his ‘family’ and leaving his crew to fend for themselves, considerably raises the stakes on a personal front. With the addition of versatile actress Charlize Theron to the mix as a hacker extraordinaire, Diesel even gets to flex some of his acting muscles. Read Full Review Here…

Review: THE NEW YORKER
motors franchise pulls a deep bromantic strain from the real-life drama of its production—the death, midway through filming, of its co-star Paul Walker. He plays Brian, a vehicular warrior who is married to Mia (Jordana Brewster), the sister of his partner-in-arms, Dom (Vin Diesel).
The partners are mobilized again—together with the martial artist Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), who is Dom’s wife; the class clown Roman (Tyrese Gibson); and the tech wiz Tej (Ludacris)—to combat a double-barrelled assault. The evil Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) is trying to kill them, and his partner-in-terror, Jakande (Djimon Hounsou), has kidnapped the hacker Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel), whose “God’s eye” gizmo can track them across the globe.

Meanwhile, Agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has been tracking a gang of lethally skilled mercenary drivers whose second-in-command is someone Dom knows. Unable to take them down himself, Hobbs asks Dom and his crew for help in exchange for full pardons for everyone.
Review: Roger Ebert
Muscleheads and muscle car fanatics deserve their own “Star Wars” or “Star Trek,” I guess, and the Fast and the Furious movies seem to fit the bill. Just like those perennial sci-fi geekouts, this saga about super-heroic street racers is essentially about friendship. All the fancy nomenclature and delirious spectacle are just to help render the essential stuff in ways that won’t embarrass a juvenile audience. It works. I don’t think my 10-year-old self could have tolerated Han Solo and Princess Leia kissing at the end of “Return of the Jedi” if not for the consolation of watching the Vietnam War re-enacted by miniature space bears.

Review: Roger Ebert
This is the third of the “Fast and the Furious” series starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster, and here they’re joined by Dwayne Johnson, making it a sort of convention of reckless drivers. Apparently some of these characters have had, in the past, long conversations about their goals, dreams, abilities and values, saving time at the present for terse verbal shorthand. When you hear as many as six words in a row, you suspect it’s a tagline for a trailer (“We need to assemble a team”). Read Full Review Here…

The two men temporarily put their differences aside as they investigate the killing.
Review: THE AGE
LIGHT the fires and kick the tyres, the boys are back in town for more street-racing mayhem in the series that dispenses with brakes, brains and speed limits.
This is the fourth movie but the title has been slimmed down to avoid any clarity. The first one in 2001 made a star of Vin Diesel, an actor with few moving parts. He was Dominic Toretto, a bad boy street racer from the Hispanic end of Los Angeles.
The equally dynamic Paul Walker was Brian O’Conner, an undercover cop who infiltrated the subculture to catch a team of truck hijackers. Michelle Rodriguez was Letty, Dominic’s babe, and Jordana Brewster played his gorgeous sister Mia. Read Full Review Here…
7. Fast & Furious 3

Once there and even more alienated, he learns about an exciting, but dangerous, new style of the sport. The stakes are high when Sean takes on the local champion and falls for the man’s girlfriend.
Review: Roger Ebert
The racing strategy is called “drifting.” It involves sliding sideways while braking and accelerating, and the races involve a lot of hairpin turns. The movie ends with a warning that professional stunt drivers were used, and we shouldn’t try this ourselves. Like the stunt in “Jackass” where the guy crawls on a rope over an alligator pit with a dead chicken hanging from his underwear, it is not the sort of thing likely to tempt me. Read Full Review Here…
