oh? i thought it was being filmed back to back i guess not.

Damn. He was a pretty good director for these kind of movies too. The only thing bad about the movies (except for Tokyo Drift) was the writing.

Tokya Drift was alright as a stand alone film, but not as a F&F film. Fast 4 was forgettable, but Fast Five was the best.

to be honest only fast and furious and fast five were the only 2 i liked in the franchise. the news that he wont return in the seventh seems like they already squeezed everything they have left in 6 and what else would there be in case their is a 7th, i dont like that they are forcefully extending the franchise for profit i hope part 6 will be the last and they put a good closure to it.
