I dunno about you guys but after seeing Furious 7 a few days ago, man that was an emotional movie. I was teary on and off all movie but at the end, it was a wrap. The tears were flowing fast. And Furious :D :bigcry:

So emotional. The first one came out when I was 9 and now at 25 is the final one, wow. I can't believe it. I grew up with it, saw the culture grow and became immersed in it myself. Dem flashbacks at the end doe. I can't believe how young they all looked, Jesus. Fuck I am starting to get teary right now *sniff*

Haven't seen Furious 7 yet.

Tragic what happened to Walker but yeah, I don't know what the fuss is about either. Many on the internet seem crazy about this now. I mean nobody cared about these films when he was alive. The movies themselves are poor to mediocre.

What makes me cry is to see this franchise being so successful.

It's a heartless, meaningless, stupid series of films.
This. Enjoy what movies you want, but seeing how many people on Facebook are getting crazily emotional over Paul Walker dying, and how many still care about Robin Williams, or ever cared about Philip Seymour Hoffman, despite the latter two being much better actors, makes me sad. And seeing Furious 7 made as much money as about 10 PSH movies also saddens me.

Think I've seen only the first one, won't see this latest one. Not great movies to be honest :shrug:

this film and trailer pretty much sums up fast and furious franchise. I laughed my ass off when watched it even though I barely watch any part of original version.

...and once again MTF disappoints :facepalm: :rolleyes:

If you didn't cry at the end of the movie, then you either have no heart, or were not such a big fan in the first place.

Lots of Europeans answering, is there any other American (North/South/Central/Caribbean) 20something males on this site that was a big Fast and Furious fan? Here in the US, and South FLA in particular, this movie franchise represented a lot. Especially to us in minority communities, black, Hispanic, other Caribbean and South and Central American, Asian. It represented adolescence and growing through it. Friendship, and family, and the importance of it. Of course fast cars and stunts and hot girls and so on, but that is peripheral. Anyone who lives in the Western Hemisphere and is under 40 ought to feel what I'm feeling.

I should not be surprised with the lukewarm reaction here seeing as I've been posting here for nearly a decade but for a film that meant so much to me and everyone I've talked to who has seen it, we have ALL shed tears. If you didn't, well, that sucks for you, as it was really an experience emotionally. A film bringing a man to tears is not a weakness in the man but rather a strength of the film. I don't know if I'll ever cry like that in a movie ever again because no other film franchise can come close to this.

I've cried in movies, sure. But good ones :p. And I've seen plenty. Never saw this one though, did check the video online since you mentioned it and it was touching, sure (though only because Paul Walker died IRL :sad:).

Not sure how serious you are about "No other franchise coming close to this" buuuuut I guess everyone gets their opinion.

1 and 5 are decent action films. They don't take themselves too seriously either. The series is pretty vacuous but it isn't as if they aspire to be anything more than relentless stunts, so for what they are, they're fine.

That said, I've never felt any particularly strong emotion watching any of them.

this fast and the furious stuff is so 2005. I liked Need for speed underground 1 & 2 and that show with Xzibit.
I didn't likethe movies thought. It's funny how americans present manual shifting, as if you start a rocket or sth. And noo if you drive more than 200kmh the world doesn't look blurred.

Adolescence and growing through it? What? I can't identify or form an emotional connection with a single thing in these movies. Look, I believe you're honest but the movies are about cars and criminals who for some reason are best buddies and they all say they value family a lot. As a person I can't learn a single thing from these characters. Most of the F&F movies are poorly written as well.

Again, I don't understand at all what it is about them that makes young American adults cry. The whole thing is confusing to me.

There's nothing special at all about these films. Like someone has already said they're just mindless action with very little depth. Whatever :shrug:

Interstellar...now there's a film that actually made me teary! Manly tears of course, none of that blubbering bullshit.
