Actors act like “foos” in Vin Diesel epic 4 Fast 4 Furious

What do chimpanzees that can act have in common with humans? If the human is named Vin Diesel, everything. Unlike the ever-so-rare chimpanzee with acting talent, Vin Diesel has an affinity to star in movies with cars and explosions, including The Pacifier. Vin Diesel’s latest epic, Fast and Furious denotes the first time a movie has dropped the article “the” to designate a sequel. Fast and Furious or “4 Fast 4 Furious” as it has affectionately been dubbed in some circles features the two stars from the first movie in the Furious, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. Much like the previous three movies in the series, Fast and Furious, features cars, cars, women in skimpy clothing, random explosions and more cars. Furious stuck with the previous movies’ recipe for success and threw in as many possible explosions as possible, including one from a rogue gas tanker. The plot, which involves drug smuggling and the FBI, seems to have combined the plot of the first two movies, but people who see this movie for the plot are wasting their money. The main attraction of this movie is the shining knight with rippling muscles that could burst through a concrete wall with a sneeze named Vin Diesel. Fast and Furious is Vin Diesel’s third full length movie in four years. The reason for the absence has gone unexplained, but that doesn’t matter anymore because he is back and balder than ever. Diesel reprises his original role from The Fast and Furious as Dominic Toretto. Dom is still a crippling bad mother with a penchant for revenge. The revenge in this movie is based upon the murder of his friend Letty, who was gunned down by a mysterious race car driver. This movie can be summed up in one sentence: Vin Diesel and Paul Walker drive cars really fast and people smuggle drugs. Vin Diesel acts as a wanted criminal this time around and Paul Walker is an FBI agent… again. This movie lacks any sense of originality or coherent character development, but none of this is important because, dude, cars and chicks! Overall, the movie plays like an informercial gone wrong about heroin smuggling and the special effects are fun to watch. People should attend this movie solely to watch an orangutan give the best performance by an orangutan since Any Which Way But Loose with Clint Eastwood. If the quality of a movie is based on how many explosions and Vin Diesels it has, this movie should win the Oscars for best picture, original screenplay and adapted screenplay.
