I’m about to make an admission that might make you question my overall taste in movies…
I didn’t hate the first Fast and the Furious movie. I actually thought it was a bunch of fun, in a don’t take it serious, laugh at the cheesiness type of way. That said, the other two films sucked worse than a Martin Lawrence movie. And this is coming from a guy who was actually looking forward to Tokyo Drift 1. because of the setting, and 2 because of the director Justin Lin, who had such a promising early start with the indie Better Luck Tomorrow. I always felt that one thing the sequels really lacked was the complete return of the original trio.
Well good news my friends, Michelle Rodriguez has signed on to reteam with Paul Walker and Vin Diesel (in more than a cameo) in the yet to be titled Fast and the Furious 4. It should be noted that Jordana Brewster is also returning for the fourth film. Does this mean the film has any chance of being good? Probably not… But it offers the hope of such.
The Fast and the Furious 4 hits theaters on June 5, 2009.
Discuss: Do you care more about Fast and the Furious 4 now that Michelle Rodriguez, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker are all on board?
