Thoughts On The Fast And Furious 6 Trailer?

Published

on

I’ve been a fan of the Fast and the Furious franchise since the beginning, but the trailer for Fast And Furious 6 that debuted during the Super Bowl really had me shaking my head.

It seems that the movies are less and less about the cars, and more about riduculous action sequences that you’d expect to see from a movie like The Expendables.

The trailer was such a blur, I had to watch it a few times just to identify the cars. There’s an Subaru WRX STI driving on two wheels, a Dodge Super Bee (that I really hope is a replica), an Alfa Romeo of some sort, another boring Dodge Charger, among others. Honestly, a total snooze-fest.. This franchise seems to have forgotten it’s roots.

Here’s the trailer in case you missed it:

At the end of the day, I was a bit disappointed to see what direction they took Fast Six.. But nonetheless, I’ll be there on opening night. 🙂

    Hahaha “an alfa romeo of some sort”??? That would be an Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione supercar, an extremely rare and extremely expensive Italian Supercar. You also failed to mention the gorgeous MK1 Ford Escort. And lastly, that’s not a Dodge Super Bee you fool it is a Dodge Daytona. You might want to learn something about cars before having a rant about them.

    I do agree with you somewhat, but F+F has always been about the stupid ricers and explosions. Sure it used to be more about the underground street racing, but back then it was also all about stupid STi’s and Evos and Skylines. It was nearly all turbocharged imports. Now we get classic Daytona’s and Escorts and Mustangs. Fast 5 had a GT40 replica.

    The cars are a lot better than they used to be.

      My bad on ID’ing the cars, there was a lot to take in during that 60 second spot! 🙂

      I have no problem with them introducing classic cars into the movies, but it feels like they’ve moved past the underground racing (what the F&F franchise was all about) and now it’s just another generic action movie with some cool cars thrown in for good measure.

    The Fast and The Furious has become out of scope. 1 is a classic, 2 sucked, 3 I enjoyed, 4 was entertaining even though it wasn’t that good, 5 I didn’t see, and 6, who knows.

    I challenge someone to make a good street racing movie, or to just make a movie about street racing with Channing Tatum as the lead; I’ll get my street racing, and the movie companies will get money from little girls. It’s a win win situation.
