This movie starts out at 120mph in a 55 zone!! And doesn't let up from there. It's odd really how they could fit a story, plot and even some character development into the action. Fans of the series will enjoy the banter between the more famous characters. You will, however, NEED to see the first one to get some of the dialog and conversations in this one. They reference the last one quite a bit. And old time fans will enjoy the antagonist and the twist-ish ending. I never saw much of the promo for the movie, so I had no idea what to expect. I am VERY satisfied with the $8.75 I just spent!!
