ldh's review

One of the biggest blockbuster franchise of the last 20 years, and i have stayed clear of it till now because I simply have had zero interest in these flicks because, primarily, i have zero interest in cars (i don't even have a driver's license you see). It's not until my younger kid asked about it and the box set Blu-Ray was available on Amazon on sale, so i picked it up, and i must say that i had some great time. Part of it of course was to watch all 7 of the films with my son over a couple of weeks in August 2016, but i can say i genuinely enjoyed them as well.

The second film is pure popcorn fun. Vin Diesel disappeared, but Paul Walker is joined by cast newcomer Tyrese Gibson, and by the simply gorgeous Eva Mendes. The movie is definitely not as good as the first one, although it's more out there fun. It's also clear that the franchise didn't quite find its footing yet as the film is also in tone and contents quite different from the first one.
