trailer break: ‘Fast & Furious’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

“A lot has changed”? Nothing has changed! It’s the same movie over and over again — they even recycled the title this time! Is dropping the thes really enough to make sure people don’t confuse this with the first movie… or is keeping the title almost identical to the first one Hollywood’s way of finally acknowledging that they’re most definitely not looking to be original in any way? That kind of honesty would be refreshing, at least, if in an aha-I-knew-it! kind of way.

You’v heard that joke about the ultimate high-concept movie, haven’t you? “She’s a chimp. He’s the pope. They’re cops!” This trailer makes me want to say: “Walker’s a cop. Diesel’s not a cop. They’re cops!”

Fast & Furious opens in the U.S. on April 3, and in the U.K. on April 10.
