A sickening adaptation of a beloved novel. The triumphs of the original novel were lost to the attempt at tugging at the heartstrings. Tragic, because I know many people loved the film yet, missed out on the true greatness of the story. Furthermore the story pacing played out as a mishmash of scenes. Even the talent couldn't save the film for me.
What's a Fast and furious movie without racing? FUN! Sure there was that one choreographed run that had all the intensity of synchronized swimming at the olympics, but otherwise the action in this movie was seriously entertaining. And what a teaser! Way to pump life into the series!
