    Ok, That movie sucked.....
    I am a big street racer and it made the cops in this area crack down on the street racing secne.

    I think that it was the biggest joke ever...
    An Eclipse with a 8 speed trans, RX7 That gose like 140 then hits the NOS, and a Floor pan falling out @ 100. No way.... It just a joke movie, and maybe more racing secnes would be cool.....

    THey had a lift on the front of the charger for that scene I liked how at the beginning he lost control of the eclipse because it topped out at 140

    the Fast and the Furious is based on a true story from an article. its not a made up story on what people think racing is. the cars in there are real and race wars really did happen with over 1,500 cars showing up. the Supra in the movie is owned by the president of NIRA. yes, there are flaws in the movie, but it tells a story.

    As far as Hackers goes, i love the part when he hacks and it shows a beautiful color interface saying he hacked, and that the girl on the other end owns him. I never knew hacking could be so easy and colorful...heh

    Fast and furious was good enought to be seen once, in theatres for the stunts.. otherwise i'd say it was a pretty dumb movie made to appeal to a young generation..

    original gone in 60s was cool, kind reminded me of interstate '76 .. im glad i missed the 70s

    The original Gone in 60 Seconds was good, if you ignored all the acting and just watched the scenes with cars. A movie that is ment for only DVD for the ease of skipping through the scenes.

    this is really wierd--I never even knew there was a 1974 version of gone in 60 seconds until about 4 hours ago when I guy that lives down the hall said he had it. I just got finished watching it, and the 40 minute car chase was friggin awesome. I think they just wanted an excuse to wreck a bunch of cars and go fast, so they decided to make a movie. but the acting was absolutely horrible--because there were no actors according to the introduction. It was all stuntmen "acting."

    fast and the furious was funny cause of the kids getting hyped off of just watching it and driving their moms car crazy also I love how in most of the computer flicks they have a fake *** os/user interface

    ok, so a guy that I live with gets it, and there's a Public Service Announcement at the beginning asking you not to street race. LMAO. Like people that would buy that movie have never thought of street racing till they saw F&F.

    Hmmm, YEAH!
    I'd say its safe to say that that movie converted a few million ricer boys.
    Anytime a car discussion is brought up in school, someone always asks "Like, do you have NOS?!" or If I'm talking about my mp3car system its "You should hook up NOS"
    And they always like taking about little Ricer cars. Don't get me wrong, Civics aren't bad, but their made for economy. You don't put a huge 6 cylinder 600HP Engine with Nitrous Injection into a Wieny little Economy Car, THats backwards.

    i would have to say it was worth the price of admission to see that charger pull a wheelstand. definitely the best part. other than that though, it was a pretty poor movie.
