I had been looking forward to this week for quite some time, due to the release of a film in my local cinema… that I actually wanted to see – Furious 7. We don’t live out in the back end of beyond, not by any means, but sometimes our friendly lil multiplex doesn’t carry the specific titles I wish to see. Damn them for not operating like a video store. Or Netflix.
Director: Justin Lin Writer: Chris Morgan Starring: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Luke Evans Running time: 100 minutes Year: 2013
The Fast And The Furious franchise has become a big deal following the success of last instalment Fast 5. Fast & Furious 6 is what you’d call a Ronseal film. It does exactly what it says on the tin. For a series which careened into public view by putting the everyman (Paul Walker) in the driver’s seat, six films in that formula remains steadfast. If it ain’t broke and all that.
