    Well F9 was finally released Jun. 25. It has made
    approximately $550 million far. What are your thoughts on
    this movie, good or bad? I'd like to hear about them.

    I am not even aware of what this movie is about at all.
    Would you like to explain?

    That's the ninth film in the Fast & Furious list.

    I think I've only seen one of them. I thought it was pretty
    good. The action sequences were fun and amazing.

    The 10th (and final) story is supposed to be split into two
    movies.

    I've only seen the first Fast & Furious movie. I haven't really been interested in seeing the others. I'm a little surprised there have been 9 of them and they're making 2 more, apparently..

    It is the biggest selling franchise for Universal right now. It generates them so much money that they will make movies until Vin Disel dies, and when he does, they will preserve him in formol and take him out of the jar every time they need yet another movie made.

    With the current state of special effects it will be easy to conceal the strings which move the Vin-Puppet

    The first movie was ok. It gets more interesting in the latter ones. None of them has a groundbreaking plot, but I commend the franchise for its honesty. They promise you crazy car stunts and car action and cars chasing cars - and that is exactlĄy what you get, no more, no less.

    So yeah, I am not a big fan but they get an A for being bullshit-free.

    I think the last/only one I saw was F7. That's the one were
    one of the lead actors that had died and was unable to complete
    his role in the film. I was curious how they patched the film
    with look-alikes.

    But I thought the film was an excellent escape from reality
    with "impossibe" wild stunts and highspeed action.

    I imagine they could also do a face swap of Vin Diesel's face onto another actor.

    What I'm interested in finding out is where his long-lost cousin Vin Gasoline is.

    Interesting.. Often sequels aren't as great as the first movie. It seemed to me the next ones didn't seem to have interesting plots, so I haven't watched them other than the first movie.

    i've been saying this for a long time. eventually i think the future of movie talent is someone will sell away their likeness for a small sum and THEN they become the star.

    I only saw the first one. I didn't think they could make any really good sequels, but I've heard they're good, so maybe I'll try watching some of them.

    I don't think the first is comparable to the ones that came after it.

    I think the first two were testing the waters and it was after them that the franchise got its "tone" and started rolling with it.

    The films get increasingly over the top the further you wo within the series too.

    Furious 6 was my all time favourite out of them all. It was extremely violent.

    4 was a mediocre movie. It's like they were going through a transition stage then. Since Paul Walker had died, 7 and 8 had gotten really over the top for me. 9 will probably be much the same. To tell you the truth, I think the franchise has dried up for ideas in my own opinion.
