Well all of the Fast & Furious films from 4 onwards have been dreadful, I'm not expecting big things from this. Though I'm sure someone I know will want to see it, and I'll inevitably go! (I'd love to be proved wrong though)

Reviews are starting to come out properly now, many saying it's the best entry in the series.

So so excited.

Really excited for this. The last one was easily the best in the franchise for me and they do seem to be getting better and better as they go along! Intrigued to seeing how they work around Paul Walker, with his brother filling in and stuff.

Apparently, apart from the final sequence you cannot tell at all that Paul Walker is not present in some of the films. It's all meant to have been handled incredibly well. Weird how the franchise goes from strength to strength. I hope the continue, although I can understand if the cast don't want to.

It's such a fascinating franchise in that it's grown and grown so far into the franchise, where franchises usually die down and this could easily have been a franchise to have just gone "straight to DVD" with Z-List actors instead. But due to them adding intense, thrilling and creative plots, whilst having the same OTT charm of the past films in the franchise, it's not hard to see why it's grown to be such a force!

Just heard 'See You Again' and it's so sad sad.gif I can definitely see that being used as one of the key moments.

I think the multi-racial cast is a big appeal - lots of appeal to different audiences which is great! Plus they do genuinely just try to make great films. You know what you're getting. 86% on Rotten Tomatoes!

I think it's used during the closing montage of Brian Connor 'retiring'.

Just saw this. It was ok, but that's all for me. I know a part of it's charm in the past has been due to the fact it's OTT, but in this one it was just a bit TOO much for me. Just got silly and ridiculous at times and more often than not I wondered whether it was actually called 'Fast & The Expendables'. It was that sort of OTT action. The 6th one in the franchise seemed to have the balance perfect.

In regards to how they dealt with Paul Walker, I really couldn't tell. Although with the ending, you can tell from the emotion of the cast that their emotion was real at this point (unless they were just ridiculously good and talented actors laugh.gif) 'See You Again' was indeed used wonderfully and the montage was so beautifully done/used. Best part of the film for me! He's going to be missed a ridiculous amount.

But yeah the film was back to being "popcorn filler" for me (I've never been a fan until the 5th and 6th). It had it's moments and was 'good' but that's literally it from me.

Now I'm going to play 'See You Again' on repeat and cry myself to sleep!

I can't stand this sort of film, but I am really impressed at how they've kept this franchise going smile.gif

Yep it's amazing! The rock bottom is amazing!!!!

Such a wonderful tribute as well, not afraid to say I shed a few tears when the montage came up. Just a brilliant, genuine film.

Amazing numbers, I don't think it's unreal to think that it will accumulate $1 billion. Only thing that might stop it is the momentum will swing towards The Avengers 2 very shortly.

Only read this if you've seen the film regarding the inevitable next film but in all the marketing stuff it implies that Deckard Shaw kills his brother. However that's obviously not the case. I take it at some point that the Shaw brothers are going to come together to take down the team.

I agree!

Also $384m at the global box office. 4th biggest ever!

As expected, it wasn't great. If they didn't have the budget for great effects, it would have been worse. It was just so cheesy and clichéd, that's not what I want in this kind of film.

That said, the use of Paul Walker's brother was seamless (I wouldn't have known if I wasn't told) and the montage at the end was great with the song used being almost perfect. It was a bit better than the last few films, so hopefully the next one builds on that!

But that's why it's good! The films don't take themselves seriously, and know what they're doing is farfetched in terms on a 'realistic' world. In terms of cheesy, I'd be surprised if anything can top the Dom flying mid-air to save Letty in Fast & Furious 6! I think that's why it's built up a massive fanbase.

Fast Five imo is the best in terms of a cohesive film. I was actually discussing the use of the technology used for Paul Walker. You can only tell in the LA showdown scene where it's quote obvious it's not him through the lack of face shots/lighting, and then the scene at the end in the supra (but how real does he look anyway!?). I was actually reading about scenes that he's not in, and it's crazy to think that you don't even notice!
