I am a Fast and Furious fan, and a somewhat retired Need for Speed player. I had fear regarding this movie, trying to, at first, mimic the game, and at last, compete with Fast and Furious. I must admit I was wrong. The movie is very enjoyable and somewhat unpredictable in some situations. At some extend it is the usual Hollywood movie, but in some other situations, it is not. I do not want to give spoilers, as this is a quite recent movie, but I must say that the Need for Speed (game) imitation is only at the end, and not that bad.
If you like cars, velocity and dangerous stunts, then this movie is for you. There are a couple comedy situations (as the one above) and a little drama too. So, a kind of complete movie.
If there is a sequel, I will be watching it. Voted 8 in 10 at IMDB.
After three Transporter movies that I loved (third is not that good, but not bad), I found out that there is a Series based on it. Well, if you like the movies, then you like cars, speed, stunts, girls, action, beating, more cars, more speed and some more beating. If that is the case, the series delivers what it promises: cars (check above), girls (check below) and some beating and action. The worst part? Other than the simple story, the main actor: Chris Vance is always smiling, not the cool and cold behavior that Jason Statham used us.
I may continue watching the series. Why? Because I like cars, speed and girls, and when I decide to watch it, then it means I am in the mood for that, not for a big and dramatic story.
I am a fan of these movies. Fast Five is just great again. You can claim that the things they do with the cars are not possible (yeah, I think some of them are not that easy, like pushing a safe around) but you get a good time watching it. Then, there are some great actors like Vin Diesel or Paul Walker, and great girls, like Jordana Brewster or Gal Gadot.
Also, the movie includes a Portuguese actor, Joaquim de Almeida. First, shame on him, to be representing a Brazilian and not a Portuguese. Second, he doesn’t know how to act. What lack of spirit to say “Caralho” or “Porra”! Is it because he is using that Brazilian accent that he seems gay? I think any other Portuguese, actor or not, would say those with more spirit.
Well, you can call me pervert. I do not have a problem with that. But Gal Gadot is just so cute…
Forza Motorsport 3 has some good simulation decisions, which makes more difficult to handle cars than in other games, like Need For Speed.
At the moment I just finished running with a Ford Fiesta Zetec S, like the one in the picture. Accordingly with the web, this darling has 1.6cc and a lot of horse power.
But then, I own a Ford Fiesta from 2003, with 1.2cc, and I get easier to 180Km/h than with Forza Motorsport 3. OK, I confess I can not get more than 180Km/h and with Forza Mortorsport 3, after being with the accelerator down for kilometers, it raised to 200Km/h. Or that, or I have too much love to my car 🙂
