Do We Really Need Another Fast & Furious Movie?

I understand that franchises are economically viable when it comes to movies, but at some point you gotta say enough.

I understand that franchises are economically viable when it comes to movies, but at some point you gotta say enough.

We've already had three installments of the "Fast & Furious" franchise. The actors have changed but the story remains the same. The cars go fast and the men and women driving sometimes have to kick some butt for the sake of the 'hood.

In the new one--"Fast & Furious"--Vin Diesel, who made the first film and then wisely cut out, is back as Dom Torretto. This time out he and Brian (Paul Walker) are at odds but realize that they have to band together to bring down a mutual enemy. Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster are also back.

I hear that the story will have some international elements this time--what, are they going to ship the cars overseas or just take off from New York and land in London? But, even with all of the original players back, we all know, that the cars are the real stars in these flicks.
