I thought it was entertaining, but since there are so many car nuts watching it I wish they had fact-checked a couple of things before they put them in.

1) Nitrous is not explosive or flammable by itself without some fuel. You can't open it up like a propane tank and then blow it up. LOL. Come on.
2) The car wheelies. WTF? Need some serious traction to make those happen.

Overall it was a good time.

The movie wasn't bad, but if you didn't see the first two.. Or at least the first one.. You'll be like uh wtf? haha.

But yeah I liked the first 2 but the 3rd one wasn't good. The only good part was when dude'* car blew up, and the first race in the movie. It wasn't the same without the original people in it. Good thing they're coming back for the fifth, although I don't know what they'll name it. They've used every name they could.

Know what would make my day if I saw it in the movie, but will never happen? A nice lil' SSEi in the background or something. I'd enjoy that.

They really do have kits you can have to make your car do a wheelie if it'* rwd, but I don't know what the advantage of that in a race would be. Personally, it seems like a waste of money, but i'm not gonna lie, it'd be cool to pull up next to a car and see it speed off from a red light doing a wheelie haha..

But yeah that'* one MAJOR problem they had with the third one.. They were mixing engines and parts that can't mix, and a ton of car nuts went crazy over it.. You figure they'd have learned and made this one a bit more accurate.

I'd like to see a car with a couple turbines in the back going track racing. That would be icing on the cake for the F&F reality track record.

Watched it opening night... loved it... love them all... now have all 4 on dvd...shhh hehe *i dont condone piracy... arrgggg!!!!*

a 5th would be awesome, but the end of the 4th leaves you knowing how dom got into japan to end out the 3rd... they all leave the states as fugitives after the breakout, and work thru europe to hit japan for the last race... to complete the story it would be them going thru paris and italy against ferraris lol

and inside info.... according to a friend who read an article somewhere online... 90% of all the cars, even the imports, housed chevy small blocks *because* they made the power easier, theyre cheaper than a 500hp turbo 4 banger, and theres plenty to stock in hollywood... and the wheelie car had to be reinforced/rewelded together after breaking in half after the initial take on the set... 2000lbs and yes thats 3 zeros of weight in the back so that at anything more than half throttle you stood it up was a) used to make the takeoff awesome, and b) used to break the frame in 2 places after the first wheelie hit the rear end upon takeoff.
^^not sure how true it is but thats what ive heard^^

One was good, second was alright, didn't really care for the 3rd. I'll probably rent this one when it comes out. It doesn't look too bad though - atleast it was most of the original cast though.

Cool

I think its all about the cars. The first was the best its all about the race. A 1/4 mile at a time, nothign else matters.Thats the theme to my live. I just wish my 1/4 live wasnt so slow. lol

In the saecond the car were good, but the second one they steped there game up. they got away from the drag and they tried to add a Good story line into it. Over all the nice tuner cars made up for the story line.

The 3rd one i do like. It sets the theme of costomizing of cars.Kid in high school putting everything they have into there cars. The hole switch for 1/4 mile to drifting... It was different. I liked it, but as you can read in threads befor alot of people dont. Also people around where i live, dont have enough money layign around to get car that can out run police and look like that. All and all i like the third. I like it the best for the costomizing and its a new look at the F&F.

The forth. Where do i start, all and all great. It was a slow start. By the end it was great.I wasnt the biggest fan of the cars they had in the end. But in the beginning there cars were great. The story line was really good. Prefect mix of a story and nice cars.

The only thing to make the movie better would be a nice SSEI or GXP. LOL But theres always a chance for that in the 5th, i guess.

Dude the day they put a SSEi in a F&F movie is the day i tick a cop off on purpose and lead him on a cross county chase. Because then it will be confirmed that my ride is the BOMB DiGGITY SHIZZZ NITTT of all rides.LOL
