Because the first three were such highly regarded cinematic art, The Fast and The Furious franchise may expand to a fourth waste of film movie. Currently, the project is in development by Universal, and nothing for production is nailed down. Rumors will suffice in lieu of real facts, though.

The conjecture machine has characters from the first three movies coming together for another installment of vehicular hijinks. This time, the action will be set in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Cars will be a mix of old and new, such as a return to the 1970 Dodge Charger used in the original movie, as well as a new Camaro, a South-American Chevrolet Opala, and a Buick GNX may even make an appearance. We can hardly wait, even though we were so rapt watching "Tokyo Drift" that we can't imagine topping that particular masterpiece.

      I don't recall seeing any pictures FWD cars with giant, unnecessary wings on the back from the 60s and 70s...

      Lots of these kids (I'm surrounded by them, I'm 17) put looks above function, what with their stupid body kits, slammed Civics, and wings big enough to make a 787 fly. I've yet to see anyone toss in a better turbo, maybe a thickened swaybar, stiffer struts, or even an intercooler. Granted, where I live we don't have the biggest ricer community, but I imagine it's still representative of the whole. All kids these days want are louder exhausts.

      If these kids are considered the new car enthusiasts, I'm going to find a new hobby >.

      Aww...so much hate. Admit it, you can only watch Lawrence of Arabia and The Godfather series so many times before something has to give. I need a good cheesy action movie every once in a while.

      If you think the F&F movies were bad, watch Driven (although the 2nd F&F movie was so bad I couldn't make it through it) Call me crazy, but I still love the 3rd installment, especially the first race scene through the construction zone.

      I liked the 3rd one! Definitely better than the second. Anyone is better than Walker. And to say that the first is the best??? Puhleeeze. If some Civic is going to try to jack me, I'm going to ram him into a million pieces. I know they were trying to make it look like the old rodeo, wrangle the horse, but it looked lame... Shoot a harpoon and climb into the semi... C'mon!

      The first two were decent time pass fare. I bleed through my eyes just thinking about the third one.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Agreed. That third one was a mess.
        • 7 Years Ago
        The first one was pretty cool.

        Part deux was total crap.

        And the third installment was actually watchable. Great soundtrack, too.

        The first one was a complete rip-off of "Point Break"
        The second one was a generic sequel.

        The third one actually had plot, character development, and some small segment of plausibility. Most of the reviewers who saw it agreed that it redeemed the series.

        If you adored the first and second ones... then I can only guess you were going for the car-porn.

      The 3rd film was a complete and utter waste of time. It made a mockery of drifting which was done in the mountains btw. They didn't even address any of the history/story or specifics of drifting, the final scene was basically bashing each other off the mountain on the way down - with the main character in a bad-handling muscle car btw.

      The main character was both annoying to look at and annoying to listen to. There was no story, because the guy just got in trouble and decided to get into even more trouble by crashing someone else's car.

      The only thing good about #3 was Millen's drift through the parking lot, that Veilside RX7 and the main trophy girl. Otherwise it was a total piece of crap.

      The first movie however, had a story and was entertaining with some good cars. The second I found to be of less substance and worse acting but had nicer cars. That said, i'd still watch either of them anyday over 'Tokyo Drift'.

      You guys rave about a movie with cars turning into robots but bash this because it isn't realistic. I know it's not going to be dead-on, but I also remember that it's just a movie. Sit back and enjoy the show.

      first 2 were tolerable as a dvd, certainly not worth a theater trip.
      3rd would of been ok, but putting a nissan engine in a classic mustang should of been punishable by law
        • 7 Years Ago
        I wholeheartedly agree,

        If the ricer kids can buy their "JDM" stuff here in the US, why couldn't the Japanese ones buy a US crate motor/trans from the web and have it shipped to Japan?

        Sure would have been less expensive than all the fabricating that would need to be done to convert the Mustang to accept the Nissan drivetrain and they would have had some low end torque that would more easily light the rear tires so they could go drifting.

        I do of course realize that the movie producers needed something to make the movie goers talk about after you see it but god that's just blasphemy.

      Don't be so nasty, my 6 year old likes the Tokyo Drift and is not all Sponge Bob!
      • 7 Years Ago
      Uh oh... yeah i agree, the first was fine.. pretty good acting, the 2nd i could go along with, but the third was rubbish, terrible acting... maybe they'll do better.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I'm a little old for the target market, but nonetheless, I liked the first one and the second was entertaining if not even more over-the-top, and the third was strictly for my sons and nephews. I did like how Vin Diesel made a cameo appearance at the end, which immediately let me know another sequel was in the works. To tell the truth, the most entertaining part of this whole series was the short that was on the "tricked out" edition of F&F that bridged the gap between the first and second one.
      • 7 Years Ago
      So i can expect a rejovination of 18 year old kids putting giant wings on their civics in my area -_- they'll probrably pull the GNx's engine out and drop a K20 in it and put a billion turbo's.
      • 7 Years Ago
      YOu guys are crazy. THe 3rd one was BY FAR THE MOST ENTERTAINING and most accurate. Sure those crazy drifts in parking garage werent really believable but the 3rd was a pretty good flick. Not oscar worthy, but pretty good way to spend 80 minutes of my time.

      Now the first and 2nd were catastrophies. The first one with SR20 engines in civics, and 9 speed mitsu trannys, etc, the 2nd one with that horrible pink s2000 and aweful acting and story line.

      Just keep walker and diesel out of part 4 like they did with 3 and everything will be ok.
