Fast and Furious 4

It is after a short gap (after ‘Slumdog Millionaire’), that I am getting a chance to watch an English film. As most of the malayalees, I also love to watch an action subject from Hollywood rather than a slow classic. The difficulty in following word by word dialogues or the easiness in understanding the theme of thrillers may be the reason for such a partiality. No need to be mentioned here that ‘Fast and Furious 4’ belongs to which category, since it is evident from the title itself.

This is the forth film in the ‘Fast and Furious’ series, the first among the group being released in 2001. Justin Lin ahs directed the movie which is acted by Win Diesel and Paul Walker. It tells the story of robbery and revenge. The police are after the guys who are responsible for oil tanker robbery, meanwhile the person who is responsible, is after the villain who had destroyed his family. The police officer changes his identity, joins hand with the robber in taking the revenge on the real villains.

We might have seen such a story line before. But those who know about the potential of English films and its technicians won’t feel like that. Each film is having its own freshness there. They will never compromise in their output. One or two scenes involving the chasing incidents in the film is exclusive and it needs special mentioning also. The opening scenes involving the oil tanker robbery is an edge of the seat thrilling experience. Like wise the chasing of cars and the racing scenes through tunnels are also done well. Those contain a perfect blend of visual effects and real shots. There are many action scenes involving usage of 3d models, ropes, wires etc; but we can’t differentiate it from the actual shots.

Win Diesel, who comes in the role of robber and Paul Walker, who has done the investigation officer hold the important roles and both of them had done well. The technical level as a whole looks excellent.

Those who love Hollywood movies should not miss an action thriller like ‘Fast and Furious 4’.

Rating : 4 / 5
