Josh: Hey, Dad, what's the secret to making a great burger?
Steve: Well, the first thing you got to do is you got to get your coals hot. Super hot, so when you put it on there, it seals in the juices. Then you don't flip it but one time. That's the secret.

Nothing special
23 July 2017 | by clausd32See all my reviews

I have just seen this movie and it was pretty boring. If this film had been released in 2000, as one of the first FF-films, it might have been good, but now its just boring. There is nothing new and original about this movie and its quickly forgotten.

If its your first FF-movie then you might like it. Its not bad, just boring. Maybe they should have done more about the big revealing at the end, but didn't have the money. That could maybe have made a better movie.

Its a movie to kill some time with nothing else. If you want to see it, then lower your expectations.

I give it 4 because Its not a badly mad FF-movie, just unoriginal and boring.
