but the reception...is so/so.
here's my thoughts.
its a good movie. the plot is not as deep as i wouldve liked, but its a fun movie to watch while chilling at home on a rainy day. it did fuel the import boom in the US and also street racing in Cali. but its not a car advertisement, its a MOVIE!! LOL
you cant blame a movie for its interpretation by the viewers!
its not supposed to be funny, or realistic, or whatever, its just an action/fun movie.
