Fast and Furi-- What the?

I thought this was interesting, I expected that movie to tank so hard.
Anyone seen it yet?


Best part:- Best Universal Pictures opening ever (three-day), beating "The Lost World: Jurassic Park's" $72.1 million.

Sorry typo. I meant to say "I haven't gone to the theaters to see it yet."

I saw it at the theater yesterday. It was much better than the second and third installment of the Fast & Furious series, in my opinion.

They had a lot of CGI in there - a little too much in some scenes for my taste - but overall the movie was good.

I noticed that from the previews, some of the crash scenes looked entirely CGI. Which makes me kinda angry. I think CGI is almost out of place in car movies.

..couldn't even finish watching the first one; the sequels haven't gotten more than a second of my attention -- cinematic rubbish.

I would have gone to this but I was afraid I'd get lost in Paul Walker's eyes.

i thought it was a good movie..

imho the other F&F movie's sucked.... except for this one and the first one....

this one had a good story if u ask me...

yeah some of the graphics were over the top... But movies now-a-days arnt??

cgi is the latest hip thing.... just like back in the day when bullet proof hero's were BAD ASS!!
