Daniel (Age 13) - ★★★

"This was a good film.

It had great actors and my favourite character was dom torreto. The action was cool and the cars were awesome. My favourite car was the 1970 dodge charger ( doms car)

Overall this was a good film that action and car fans can enjoy but the dialogue was lacking and so was the story."
