The third was the best IMO. Even with the slideways. Seemed to have the best story, that was pseudo believable, and none of the characters were rediculous just some kids trying to make extra money under the mobs nose. Might have been making a lot of money, but they were small believable jobs (presumably since you didn't actually see any crimes taking place).

I come here because I like the tuna.

Who here feels sorry for me? This is my local forum (chaarlottesville, va) 5 responses so far 4 of them think it's going to be the greatest movie ever. Browse that forum for a few and it will become evident that out of all the cars in this area about 2% are worthy of any attention.

Gone are the days of real "car" movies....by H.B. Halicki.
Stunt driver from the '70s who still holds records today with number of wrecked vehicles.
Typical '70s acting, but good none the less.

I like Vin Diesel movies, they are a guilty pleasure. I'm surprised he's doing another one, maybe it's a sign the script is actually ok and doesn't suck ***.

I'll go see it just because car movies are few and far between. I wager that it'll be better than 1 and 2, but not 3. Someone needs to get Nicholas Cage to do another car movie.

The third one was ok enough for me to burn a copy. I really like the Monte Carlo for some reason. It has that awesome pile of **** thing going on.

I'm sure I will see it eventually. I'm not paying to see it though.
