NEW MODEL. ORIGINAL PARTS.
When Dominic Toretto’s (Vin Diesel) girlfriend is murdered, he reluctantly partners up with Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker), now in the FBI, in an attempt to bring the responsible to justice. This wildly imaginatively titled fourth chapter of the franchise opens and ends with plenty of bang for your buck, but most of the stuff in between is not so interesting. Lagging pace and the overwhelming amount of illogical ingredients are drawbacks. Watching Diesel and Walker back together is not really the seminal event of the season, but they’re OK.
