Ah yes I remember the prequel to 2f2f,I loved how he got the Skyline and tuned it out.

Ah the red Evo,tuned by Rhys Millan,professional drifter himself...remember tho this last move was the prequel to Tokyo Drift.

I know at Bestbuy they had special 3 pack where you can get all 3 of the movies,looked good to me...wonder if they may do a 4 pack when this FNF comes to DVD


On the release of FnF on DVD, Vin filmed a 20-30 min prequel to tell what Dom did after FnF 1 and how he meet up with Han(from Tokyo Drift)

Wouldn't you just love it if KITT would have a "Nitrous" button? Or maybe a hood turbocharger.

the movie was the best f&f movie by a mile coz they
made things simple. in 2f2f they use a lot of computer generated images which made the movie look fake.
this one though, the chase scene looks fairly good and real.

i saw this in youtube an all the crashed and use on filming
i just hope GST never mix KR with f&f by using nitrous or neon for season 2(if there is)
kitt is a futuristic car with ability that is more advance than other cars in todays standard

It's not a family-friendly movie given the level of violence and other content but you should go see it yourself if you like what you see in the trailers.


"other content" that's funny. I read the review on edmunds and it specifically stated what the other content was so that disuades me from wanting to see it because I don't need pc stuff throw in my face.

So after seeing this movie.... the year is 2005 and this is a prequel to Tokyo Drift? That's what I took from it anyway since a dead character from Tokyo Drift has returned and Diesels girl friend says its been 5 years since the incident in the desert from the first movie set in th e year 2000.... YET we a treated to many cars made after the year 2006.
The only thing remotely good about this movie for me personally was the trans am at the end. I understand it was just a popcorn movie, after all the first one taught me so much. Like how if you hit the N.O.S. your passenger side floor pan will just fall out.... or that you can shift a 5 speed Eclipse into 7th gear as long as your name is Paul Walker. I went into this with an open mind, and came out wondering who I needed to write to get my 9 bucks back and feel even more depressed that I contributed to this thing making enough to spawn at least one more sequel.

Sorry meant to say Diesels "sister" not girlfriend. Refearing to the scene where Paul Walker meets Jordana Brewster and she comments that its been 5 years since he came into her life and wrecked her family and pretended to love her.

Your wrong sir.... Once an audience grabs ahold of a certain actor in a role then that is who they want to see. Vin was a bad ass in the first one and this one... People diden't care about the franchise without him. It shows in the box office sales.

Same can be said for Knight rider.The Hoff is michael Knight... that's who the fans accept with open arms. Add the hoff in season 2 and I guarentee ratings would go up. That's just how it is.

Uh, no. A movie's/show's QUALITY is not based, solely, on an actor. You can have the greatest actor in the world perfectly cast in the role, and if the rest of the movie sucks... well, that's it then: it sucks.

Success does not equal quality. Tons of garbage is successful. And this movie is a perfect example of it.

The movie was just flat out BORING. Nothing happened that was new or innovative.While the first one broke new ground on racing footage and what not, this one seemed content to sit on it's haunches. The plot was uninspired, but functional. And the timeline thing just kept me confused. Like msKEN mentioned, we're before TD(I think), but somehow have cars from the future. It didn't make sense.

And yes, that was a mustang with a Cervini body kit on there.

Seriously, the "Exit Light, Enter Knight" episode of Knight Rider had way more creativity poured into it, and that was a simple bank robbery.

Evidently there's still an audience for this franchise. After the first film (which had a mediocre plot to begin with), the series took a sharp nosedive in terms of quality. On the surface it looks like the same film as the original, but I'll have to see for myself when I get around to it.

As long as it makes profits, the franchise will stay. Good for fans, bad for haters. In a way, it goes the same way for us KR fans too.

Han was in FnF and KR? :o
Congratulations!By reading this signature,KITT's AWESOMENESS has increased by ONE POINT!

Yeah Sung Kang was in Journey to the End of Knight(or whatever), he was Ian Chang. The guy that didn't drive the pos predator xtreme. The other guy was played my Karl Yune who happens to be related to Rick Yune who played Johnny Tran in the first movie. If you look online you'll see how much of a piece of crap the predator is, the pics I saw the painted had already started to fall off in chips.

Yes, but it also has already dropped from being the # 1 movie and earned only a 26% approval rating according to Rottentomatoes.com.

Personally, what I'm really looking forward to is Terminator: Salvation.
