The third installment of The Fast and The Furious series looks so bad that not even Paul Walker would "act" in it. Ouch. We were down with the first FF because Vin Diesel lives life a quarter mile at a time and so do we. The second episode, however, lost Mr. Diesel to the set of The Pacifier and was sullied by blatant Mitsubishi product placement. This newest chapter looks like nothing more than Hollywood’s attempt to cast the shallow light of tinsel town on a fad that peaked two years ago just to make a few bucks.
To its credit, the producers did manage to sign on both Rhys Millen and Samuel Hubinette, Formula D’s top two drifters, as the movie’s stunt drivers.

Still, we'd rather wait in line to see Cars.

      After having the misfortune of seeing this trailer over the weekend, I had to rush home and purge my brain of the horror by watching the VW "unpimp mein auto" ads. Whew, quick relief.

      Straight to video in 60 seconds.

      I agree, #8. Drifting takes years to master, espeically for a hillbilly redneck who didn't even know what drifting was. Yet in the end of the trailer, we see him outdrifting the locals. WTH is thaT? More Hollywood American arrogance??

      Even as an owner of a modified 2003 Honda S2000 (coil-overs, custom wheels, exhaust), I'm ashamed at what this movie promotes. Actually I'd have to probably say any real drifter would be ashamed of what this movie is. Drifting in and of itself takes a lot of skill. I'd rather see a movie based on the Japanese Touge mountain racing though.

      Also note, you don't have to own a Japanese car to be a ricer... I see plenty of Neon's, Mustangs and Camaro's that fit that bill too.

      MAN, I got goose bumps WATCHING that. I CAN'T WAIT!!!

      Who I'd ever thought about a movie with FAST CARS, white people, black people, yellow people and pretty girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Thing about ricer culture is, it does product placement all by itself. They'll pay money to put a banner on their car.

      Damn. If it weren't for these movies, people who like to modify their cars and drive hard could live in peace doing what they do.

      Would've been nice to be free from the "It's not what I'm into so it's obviously a stupid pastime" people, and from the "If you can't afford a Bimmer or Porsche you shouldn't be allowed to enjoy cars" people.

      The movies also brought the wrath of police and parents groups down on tuners and their copycats. Rightly so, especially after the movies started showing racing on crowded streets.

      Does this mean we'll have yet another incident of people peeling out of theaters, like what happened when the first F&F was showing? (I never saw it myself, nor experienced it when I saw the sequel).
      • 9 Years Ago
      They need VIN DIESEL back badly. He made the first one very good. The second one sucked ass. This third one with the Jarhead redneck will probably be the shittiest yet.
