    But at six movies in I think killing main characters is justified.

    I was shocked at how much I liked this movie. Bring on the next one.

    @ghostman Agreed. It at least showed some effort on their part after part 3.

    @corey I watched Fast Four last night; I thought it was pretty good, looking forward to five and six this week. As I said before, I'm not a 'die hard' fan of the series, but they are good action films to watch occasionally when I have nothing else to do.

    After this past weekend...I watched The Fast and the Furious and also Fast Five...(Lets face it, I respect the franchise, but those are the only two worth watching.) And I was getting all pumped to see it, but never got around to it...SLACKIN!

    While I am not going to spend money on any of the Fast films, I have to agree with @moviegeek about how impressive the franchise has become. I do plan on seeing Star Trek when I get my paycheck this week, though. I hope that's as good as everyone says...

    @moviegeek right!
    on 4 & 5 they had the upper hand, the enemy didn't take them seriously cause, they are just drivers but here, the first scene when they first met Chaw I loved it
    and hey, did Brian really won against Dominic on that race in the beginning of the movie
    Tyrese and Ludacris combo jokes where even better this time
    Fantastic, have to see it again

    @ghostman Yeah, I've been waiting for that too so I'm still kinda looking forward to the next one (and maybe they'll bring back Lucas Black's character too)

    @ghostman Blah. You haven't even enjoyed Fast Four and barely Fast Five. YOU AREN'T A REAL FAN.

    @thedude1@felipe-11 Even though I think Tokyo Drift is the worst in the series, I like how they have finally connected it to the other sequels in this movie.

    @thedude1 Well that why I said "for me". 2 and 3 were money-milkers, yes, but at least they were about the characters (whether they were actually good or not is another story), F6 is all about getting to the next set piece. I like having both, not one or the other.

  16. TheDude1

    @felipe-11 Worst of the series? Tokyo Drift was complete trash and 2 Fast is not far off. They just made those movies to profit off of the first movie.

    @the-movieghost That is the best part. He is never really a villain. Which will make part 7 much more interesting. Hopefully they are smart and keep him for more than just part 7.

    Fast 6 was disappointing for me, I didn't hate it but it's definitely the worst of the series for me.

    And I really thought Into Darkness would make more since it's only its second week. Now THAT was a perfect summer movie, not to mention a great sci-fi.

    @moviegeek True. Could you imagine if there was a Point Break 6? lol

    Figures ...nothing really "NEW" opened this week except sequels!!

    @the-movieghost he was a villain in WAR with jet-li and in the movie with chris evans and kim basinger.

    @thedude1 I could NOT believe they really brought him into the series. I hope it works well though, haven't ever seen that actor as a villain though.

    NOBODY would have believed you if you went back to when the first fast and furious movie came out and said that there would be a fifth sequel in the franchise, and that it would make this much over a weekend. Nobody.

    That is one impressive feat for these filmmakers, and I can honestly say that it is well-deserved.

    Fast 6 was epic. I loved how they set it up for part 7. Should be even more epic.

    Glad I decided to see Fast furious 6! It was so good I wanted to see it again right after the movie ended! Lol

    @ghostman depends on how they end the 7th one. 6 was one of the best movies I have seen in some time. I knew it would make over 100m and it deserved every penny. I saw Hangover as well, was not as bad as most people made it out to be and was better than part 2. I am glad the series is over though

    Damn, that's awesome!

    If this keeps up with the Fast and Furious 7, maybe we will get an eighth movie.
