This adrenaline flick classifies as one of my favourite films of all time, only because of how great it is put together! It is action packed, never get's boring, has an ensemble cast, the women are gorgeous, the acting is good enough to love the characters and care about what hap...

As far as B-movies go, you can't do better than The Fast and the Furious. The story is a bit silly and runs familiar territory, but stars Paul Walker and Vin Diesel really have great screen presence. Pair them with their sexy love interests and one hell of a villain in Rick Yune,...

Rob Cohen does a phenomenal job of bringing the world of street-racing to the big screen. An in-your-face, in-the-action direction plays well visually as well as the chemistry and performances from the main stars. The peril and interesting plot adds fuel to this machine to haul i...

When this first came out I was blown away. I thought this was one of the best movies on 2001. Now I figured I'd go back and rewatch the movies up to the new one. So after 10 years(really?)does it hold up? Yes and no. The story is still decent and the cars are awesome and sti...
