How can it be that the American movie-going public would combine to spend $72.5 million during its opening weekend?
Have people lost their minds? Are shiny cars THAT impressive? Are we so simple that it’s worth sitting through 90 minutes of drivel (not to mention the $20 admission price, plus concessions) to watch attractive people do nothing?
Never mind that a mere 24 percent of the nation’s film critics approved this film (most gave it one star out of four or less). Who actually woke up Friday and thought, “Gee, I can see the fourth chapter of a film franchise that was played out in part two. Sign me up!” This retread film was as necessary as a baseball glove for a quadroplegic.
The first “Fast” film was OK, but “2 Fast 2 Furious” was a disaster, repeating the same junk in a different place. The third part, “Tokyo Drift” was even worse, so they opted to get all the same stars as the original, put them in the same place and have them do EXACTLY THE SAME THING.
If you want to watch them that badly, rent the first film (it’s a lot cheaper). Thanks to you people who went to the film, there’s no avoiding a fifth chapter, then a sixth, and … well, you know what you did.
On behalf of movie fans who do not like feces on film, thanks for nothing.
