Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker) set out to catch hold of same culprit Braga (John Oritz) for different reasons. Dom is ex-con and fugitive while Brian plays the role of an FBI agent. Letty played by Michelle Rodriguez is both ally and girl friend to Dom. Mia(Jordana Brewster) Dom’s sister pairs up with Brian in the movie. Basically same cast plays same characters as was shown in the first F&F. After the initial tiff both Dom and Brian team up to get to Braga. This chase includes drugs coming across the borders of US and Mexico, money, revenge and FBI. Story has been accessorized with exotic locations of L.A, desserts of Mexico, fast paced cars and spectacular stunts. Despite that, the chase doesn’t bring a full-on entertainment to the audiences.
Opening scene is the most engaging part of the movie, where Dom and Letty, along with their Latin fellows successfully hijack an Oil truck in Dominican Republic. Rest of the movie, however has failed to live up to the expectations. There are some uplifting points in the movie though; Punch lines by Vin Diesel at various points do help you keep going, peppy background music, and then there is Jordana Brewster who looks demure throughout the movie.
Vin Disel has done justice to his character. Paul Walker is convincing as an undercover FBI agent. Michelle Rodriguez followers would be disappointed as she doesn’t have much screen time. Jordana too hasn’t got enough scenes to demonstrate her acting skills.
Movie has got all that it takes to make a hit but Justin Linn (Director of the movie) has not been able to put them together very effectively.
On the whole If you’d be content watching a movie with some flashy car chases, custom modified cars (with GPS this time) and same old cast with same old story, you might consider giving Fast and Furious 4 a try!
