Franchise Review : The Fast And The Furious (Part 1)

This is a new format we’ll be rolling out for reviewing entire film franchises. The reviews will appear in note form (otherwise you’ll get a 920000-word film school debrief of each film) on whatever scraps of paper I choose to present them on. The notes for this franchise were taken during the film screening with no researching or prior preparation. It wasn’t intended to be witty or insightful just some thoughts as I watched the film. SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY (No matter how vaguely they are referenced)

Having only ever seen the first outing, I truly believed we had said everything that needed to be said in one film. But alas that was a number of years ago and I’m older, wiser, grumpier and a more critical man now. It’s time to give this franchise a chance to show me whatever it is that audiences find so appealing about it.
