I haven’t seen any of The Fast and the Furious movies in their entirety (though I recall catching a snippet of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift when I was visiting my parents awhile ago) and had no intent of doing so.
I am also surprised to learn that there have only been three, excluding the latest movie. And speaking of Furious 7, I have just seen the trailer and I might have to see at least one because it looks insane.
On top of that, it was directed by James Wan (Saw, Insidious, Dead Silence, etc), who’s always had an eye for interesting visuals.
And did I mention that on top of the regular cast, it stars Jason Statham as well as Kurt Russell?
And after all, it’s not as if I am not expecting Downton Abbey (thanks for that!) or anything.
