Your favourite love-to-hate car film franchise, distilled down to gearshifts only
Ah, the Fast and the Furious, the inexplicably successful film franchise that we love to hate. Realism never has been high on the agenda of the creators of this series - you only need to look at some of the quarter-mile sequences to realise that (how bad a drag racer do you have to be to downchange halfway through a quarter-mile sprint?).
im about to click this but can anyone find the pisstake someone did of the scene with brian. basicly its the dubbed first scene in the car park but the kid takes the piss changing gears and in one shot changes gear with his foot.
Always loved the first scene of the first film where Brian makes 7 apparent upshifts, racing across the car park... only to get an engine problem that sends the car major spin. I know they're hardly cinematicly brilliant or realisitic (bridge jump in the 2nd film anyone?), but for some reason I've got a soft spot for the F&F francise
