I saw this opening night and I really wanted to like it. People at my job even made fun of me for wanting to see it, that is how much I was rooting for this film. Obviously I know this is not Citizen Kane or the even far superior Point Break, but I had hopes of watching an enjoyable summer movie. I enjoyed the first one very much and was not expecting much substance in the sequel. That being said it was very poor. The opening race scene is very well done, but the rest of the movie is a mess. Paul Walker is not bad, but it is hard to enjoy any of the other performances. The villain (Cole Hauser) is one dimensional and his goons are stereotypical bad guys. One of the reasons the first one worked was because you actually liked Vin Diesel and his team. It is hard to like anyone in the sequel. The first one also had a certain style, with nice transitions between scenes (day to night time lapses, nos effects, etc.). If you don't have your lead actor (Vin Diesel), then at least spotlight the cars, the actual races and enhance the effects. There are actually only 3-4 real driving scenes. All they really did was show close-ups of gears shifting fifty times and blur the screen when the nos button was pressed. The ending is absolutely ridiculous. 4 out of 10 (The opening scene is awesome, thats it).
