I quite liked the first trailer and can understand them playing safe, but the toxic level of nostalgia on show here was all a bit much. And as for that shot at end...pass the sick bucket.

Obviously F7 is doing very well here in blighty - and in the rest of the world of course.

A staggering $867m and rising. Dom & co. will probably 'join the club' over the weekend.

The damsel-in-distress is one of Hollywood's oldest tropes, Horror one of its oldest forms. No surprise to find them both still knocking around.

^ Paris, Texas would be another for the list but yes, it's a gut-wrencher at the end and the film never quite prepares you for it, which is bit of a snag for any repeated wallow. Still, a tremendous...

For the established fans no doubt, but many newer fans came on board with Fast Five due to it expanding into the pure action arena - and making a mighty fine job of it too.

Looker's an interesting one, the sort of solid SF-intrigue the studios used to dip into far more than they do nowadays. Finney is one of those actors that seems slightly miscast in genre fayre (as he...

^ Might be P&P's A Canterbury Tale - and that would be a fantastic choice too.

Oh really? To me it highlighted the problem(s) the film had as a whole - that it stumbles clumsily between two stools (formal and emotive), and Nolan doesn't have the skill to spin a cohesive,...

No, I didn't miss it and you miss the point again. Nolan couldn't conjure any satisfactory drama from it - it just fell flat.

This sort of reasoning isn't the issue. It's Nolan's treatment of it that falls short. Here was a moment that really needed greater emphasis to put its point across, but Nolan just wasn't up to it....

Different sort of adaptation perhaps. A US version of Lars Von Triers' much superior The Kingdom rather than one of his own written works.

Best box-office too, according to reports.

An estimated $144m (US) & $240m (Int.) equals a rather jaw-dropping $384m global weekend, the 4th highest ever.

Vroom vroom!

Yes, best performances.
