Have you seen them all, or did you give up on 3? Because they really start paying off with fan service and genuinely exciting action once you get further in. But, somewhat ironically, you have to sit through the ones that might put you off, to get to the end of that road.I loved this at the time, and still rate it as a really original, fun film.
Wasn't keen on any of the sequels unfortunately.
Agreed.You can't fault the production values and truly incredible stunt work in these films, but christ, they're just so moronic!
I can feel my brain cells dying in real time whenever I watch one and, to me, there's little difference between this franchise and the "Transformers" one.
Admittedly, I am not the core demographic at all - if I were in my twenties and a petrolhead, then they'd probably be the best films EVER! And I do accept that they'd probably look and sound amazing on a quality HC set up, but I know I'd just get really depressed at the idiotic dialogue, paper thin characterisation and perfunctory plotting.
But what do I know? They're hugely successful and have clearly found an audience.
