This is where it all started for ‘The Fast and the Furious’ franchise, quite humble beginnings when you compare it to the latest instalments, don’t you think?
The late Paul Walker and Vin Diesel kick things off for the tarmacdestroying megaseries as the undercover FBI agent (Walker) and the drag racer under investigation (Diesel) who form a bond tighter than brotherhood. Only when it comes time to do his duty, Walker finds it hard figuring out where his loyalties lie.
Expect balls-to-the-wall racing and all the comradery of ‘Point Break’.
Ben Affleck directs this stunning bank heist thriller about the notorious and crimeridden neighbourhood of Charlestown, Boston. When a member of a team of armed robbers falls in love with one of his former hostages, he has to tiptoe around the expectations of his family, his blossoming relationship and the FBI agent who is hot on his trail.
If you’ve been living in a cave and thought Affleck’s career was dead in the water, check out this bad boy.
You know, I always thought Ryan Gosling was the go to pretty boy in Hollywood and never really took him seriously as an actor … but then I saw ‘Drive’.
Here he owns the screen with an understated and subtle performance (is that an oxymoron?) as a Hollywood stuntman who uses his skills to work as a proficient getaway driver. However, when he tries to help out the family down the hall, things take a turn for the worse.
Worse for the bad guys anyway! Elevator head stomp anybody?
Would you look at that? Here he is again!
Ryan Gosling swaps the stunt car for the stunt bike this time round as the small time carnival performer who decides enough is enough and starts robbing banks with his pristine bike-riding skills to provide for his son.
Strap in tight, this is one gritty epic that spans generations.
So maybe you watched ‘Point Break’ because you’re a fan of EXTRA crazy, insane action that leaves your jaw on the floor and makes your eyes pop out of your skull? Stuff that goes above and beyond the expectations of the other crime thrillers listed above? If that sounds like you, why not check these movies out as well?
From the director of ‘Happy Feet’ and ‘Babe: Pig in the City’ comes this completely mental action film that does away with a plot and instead opts for car chases, explosions and a weird wasteland nutter playing heavy metal riffs on top of a monster truck.
Tom Hardy takes the reigns from Mel Gibson as Max and joins Charlize Theron on a desert-trekking mission to free a people and bring justice to a crazy post-apocalyptic world.
Clive Owen stars in this gloriously ludicrous action flick as Mr Smith, a man who was simply minding his own business … before he had to deliver a baby during a shootout and kill a guy with a carrot. Paul Giamatti costars in what is a violent and deranged thriller that’s every bit as crazy as you’d expect. While it was never going to win any awards, there’s a reason this is one of my biggest guilty pleasure movies.
Well I think that’s enough gun-toting, car-chasing madness for one day, don’t you? Don’t be sad though, guys! There’s more than enough action, thrills and spills for you to marvel at here! So go and watch ‘em all!
