So, how did you end up over here, anyway?
Well, you know those old Westerns where the cowboys make a run for the border? This is my Mexico.
Why'd you let me race with your car? You knew I was gonna wreck it.

Got a free screening pass to see it 6-12, saw it with some car buddies, the dork I am took notes.
This movie had more semblance of a plot than the rest of the franchise, the action stayed fresh and actually flowed with the plot, and the characters actually had motivation this time! There weren't any HUGE glaring inaccuracies (other than daddy throwing sonny the keys to a car with NO ENGINE in it...) The three cameos in the film were well placed, though a bit campy at the very end. The cars and action sequences were amazingly choreographed, one even leaving my whole theatre clapping for the protagonist.
I give 8/10 because of low expectations, and being totally blown away when it was much better than I expected.
