The Future
17 February 2005 | by (Savannah, GA) – See all my reviews

I've read some excellent, incisive comments, mostly critical of "2Fast 2Furious" on the pages of IMDb. These comments are much more artistically, technically and culturally incisive than what shows up on the pages of our commercial media. They all happen to be wrong, I believe, because I was here the last time major motion picture cultural earth changes came through, and I knew it that time, when most were still dismissing what were called "spaghetti" westerns and "chopsocky," martial arts films. The great films that emerged from these two cultural upheavals are now considered part of our mainstream culture. So will, the "cosmo/octane films," which combine elements of "Miami Vice," "Beach Party," auto racing movies and the black/white buddy picture. I read complaints about the element of "Asian Techno" being supplanted by "American metal". Guess what? The "hemi" is back, and I DO see a real challenge coming between "muscle" and "pocket rockets". Director John Singleton and his talented crew have made the most of the glamor possible through this "multicultural engineering". Thus we have hot men and women of all races and colors running around in "2Fast 2Furious". As Sergio Leone and his cohorts taught us "Faces can create a landscape," so here we have one of the most fascinating faces I've seen recently in the person of Devon Aoki. Devon doesn't get much to do, but she's there for the look and she DOES make the most of it. Eva Mendes has just the right mix of brains, class and lustiness to keep you guessing. Tyrese also has that look, kind of a Jamie Foxx with a lot more dangerousness. I wish Singleton had some way to give Tyrese more, 'cause he always seems to be coming out second place to Paul Walker in storyline. The plot of "2Fast, 2Furious", admittedly, does seem sort sort of like a bad CHiPs episode with Erik Estrada upstaging Larry Wilcox (AGAIN!!!). Styles, what count, though, and great driving.

Ah, and then there's Paul Walker. If I live long enough, I know I'm going to see Walker win an Oscar. Laugh? Remember the jokes about John Wayne and Clint Eastwood? Walker impressed me the first time I saw him. He was playing a heavy in "She's All That." Walker brought a vulnerability to that role, which made his character all the more dangerous. Here, Walker is cool, empathetic, sexy, dependable and dangerous, all at the same time. Just WHO else can you say that about? If Cosmo/Octane IS going to be a new phenomenon,Miami is going to be busy; and, as for Paul Walker, may I strongly suggest to Michael Mann to get his long-delayed "Miami Vice" feature rolling. "Mr. Mann, your 'Sonny Crockett' is waiting."
