Come on, that’s all you were expecting right? I mean, yes I enjoyed the first film, way back when. But it was nonsense. I avoided the second because I was afraid of a Paul Walker overdose. But I’ve been a fan of Lucas Black’s since those American Gothic days, and I figured some mindless entertainment might be fun.
And it was.
Although the plot makes no sense, it is all just an excuse for the cars to drift. And yes, drifting is cool, I thought so when I saw it last year on Top Gear and I still think so. But 104 minutes of drifting is slightly too much. Still, cars go fast. And cars go bang. So its all good. Can’t say as I was impressed by the pretty girls though.
And in the end Show Spoiler ▼
There is one bit that deserves praise though. I thought the action sequences were very well shot. All the directing in fact was great. Everything looked just as it should, although Black is too old to be playing a school kid. But Diesel was too old to play his role in first film, so maybe they are just sticking with tradition.
