(This review may contain spoilers).
Again, I do want to watch all of the Fast and Furious movies… but one person commented that this movie was where the whole family dynamic started; and since I like family-themed things, I picked up this DVD from the supermarket.
It was good to see the familiar actors from the first movie. The characters all seemed to have changed a lot and it was good to see the direction their lives had taken.
At first, I didn’t like Brian’s character all that much… but he did grow more on me as the movie went on. I especially liked Brian and Dom interacting together. There was a kind of rivalry between them that seemed to evolve into mutual respect as the film went on.
The effects in this movie were pretty cool, especially when it came to the car races. I liked seeing Brian and Mia together, even if I felt Brian could have been a bit better towards Mia. And I would have liked to see a bit more of Dom and Mia interacting together.
There were a couple of other actors I recognised in this movie as well and it was good to see them heading to different countries. I was pulled into this film. I felt there were some really intense scenes and I could empathise really easily with the characters. I felt the actors played well off each other.
I don’t really know much about cars and car racing, but that didn’t really detract from my enjoyment of the film. I particularly liked the ending of this, too, though I felt that it ended on something of a cliffhanger.
