For being a low budget film, this impressed the hell out of me
I'm a big fan of martial art movies. I first saw this on HBO back in '98-'99. When HBO was showing previews of it, just the small clips caught my eye. When I actually saw the movie though, that inspired me to train even harder since I incorporate martial art moves into breakdancing. Even as far as today I'm still going through the scenes in slow motion just to look at some of the techniques that were used in this film. Every fight was energetic, I wasn't bored once, and the fights were put together so well that they kept building up until the climatic scene where the last fight takes place. This movie will probably become a classic. And for being the kind of film that it is makes it an even better candidate for being one. I just wish I could get my hands on the hard to find imported DVD which is supposed to contain some deleted scenes.
2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
Not very good...but way better than the first one.
This movie in my opinion far surpassed what the first one was supposed to be. It was more like one story that interconnected 2 links, racing and the case at hand. If compared to the first one, yes, this one is better,...way better. The first one ended up being a lesson on how to become a so-called "real" street racer. The first one actually gave wannabes the excuse to become true posers. All it was was a movie that should have been called, "The True How To Become A Street Racer" when in reality all it was was a waste of money. They actually thought that they were part of Vin's team and that they were real street racers. Sorry but just because you can get your hands on a Euro doesn't make you a racer, that alone just makes you a poser in training. Knowing what to do in the situation proves your knowledge...(and that doesn't mean that you only have to know how to push the accelerator or brake) This movie though, part 2 was actually more about the case than about the racing. The racing was just used as it should have been used in the first film, just as an incentive of how you can use a machine like that to your advantage. It wasn't about how to be a racer. Now for the true heads out there that actually are racers, I can see how you may like or dislike both films, you're one of them, but to a poser...I'm sorry but you might as well just leave it to your imagination. That's the least that you have on your side.
