Fast & Furious Reviews

  • If all you want to is extreme car chases, explosions, and violence; then this is well worth the price of admission.

    Julian Roman — MovieWeb

  • In the jammed landscape of mass-market new releases, it offers an attractive getaway route from self-importance, snark, and chatty comedies about male bonding. Here, stick shifts do the talking.

    Lisa Schwarzbaum — Entertainment Weekly

  • This example of presummer pop diversion will be best appreciated by future audiences flabbergasted by its unabashed revelry in fossil-fuel consumption.

    Nathan Lee — New York Times

  • Feels about as fresh and lively as a piece of burnt rubber.

    Claudia Puig — USA Today

  • The reunion is fun and frantic, like the original on double nitro.

    Desson Thomson — Washington Post

  • By the fourth installment of the franchise, Fast & Furious has shed two articles from its title, regained the four original lead actors, and turned shamelessly into a monotonous unofficial edition of the Grand Theft Auto gaming series.

    Wesley Morris — Boston Globe

  • Fast & Furious reconfirms that car-chase movies -- good, bad, or mediocre -- all assume the future employment of the quaint old fast-forward button.

    Nicolas Rapold — Village Voice

  • Like a lemon that's been tricked out with a fancy paint job, Fast & Furious won't stand up to much scrutiny under the hood.

    Elizabeth Weitzman — New York Daily News

  • The good news is that the movie's speedy and strong enough to deliver some well-tuned excitement, even if it's as bulky and brainlessly bright as the muscle cars it celebrates.

    James Rocchi — MSN Movies

  • Fast & Furious is exactly and precisely what you'd expect. Nothing more, unfortunately.

    Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times

  • Fast & Furious succeeds because the action is supercharged in a style that recalls Mel Gibson's apocalyptic classic, The Road Warrior. The characters are more than cartoonish, and the plot grips the road.

    David Hiltbrand — Philadelphia Inquirer

  • Everything that happens here happened in the three previous chapters -- and in Cannonball Run, for that matter.

    Colin Covert — Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • This franchise is out of gas.

    Tom Long — Detroit News

  • By far the weakest entry of the four.

    Todd McCarthy — Variety

  • The stars look bored out of their minds when the fourth episode of the franchise stalls between racing sequences, which is all too often in a flick where 106 minutes speed by in what feels like at least four hours.

    Lou Lumenick — New York Post

  • A tepid, repetitive and digitally augmented hot cars-hot women thriller that might probably won't give Vin Diesel and Paul Walker the career boost that The Fast and the Furious did.

    Roger Moore — Orlando Sentinel

  • It's time for these car fiends to slam the heap into 'park.' Diesel should use his ESP powers to find a better gig with a franchise that still has some gas -- such as maybe The Pacifier 2?

    Peter Howell — Toronto Star

  • Though I admit the title of the film is slightly dumb, I can't really fault much else going on here.

    Laremy Legel — Film.com

  • Like Brian and Dom, Fast & Furious would benefit from more female company. And Vin Diesel's mumbling sulk gets to be a drag after a while.

    Stephen Cole — Globe and Mail

  • Fast & Furious spends a lot of time advertising how exciting it is, without actually being exciting.
