I decided with all the insanity going on the world today I would take some time off and just chill and catch a flick. I settled on F9 the latest in the fast and furious franchise. I get it they are not deep thinking or even well thought out. Not to mention they always have plot holes big enough to drive a truck a through, but they are fun usually so what the heck.
I settle in and of course there are massive plot holes but lots of great car chases and explosions and all round roller coaster type fun.
UNTIL…about an hour ten into the movie the thing that destroys all movies for me these days. Three tiny little petite girls bet the crap out of 6 men. Look I get it, if the average female MMA fighter starting picking fights with male grocery store clerks those guys would get the snot kicked out them.
But by the same token if those female MMA fighters took on the top male MMA fighters they would get the crap kicked out of them.
But I'm supposed to believe that two of the three chicks that are like 5 feet and haven't been in a fight in years and not even remotely technical trained suddenly just beat the crap out of 6 male security guys, like hired guys who do it for living. Why do writers feel they need to do this? I am a girl it doesn't make me swoon watching stuff like that and dreaming of being able to do it. Quite the opposite it makes me roll my eyes and think does any one believe this shit?
Then shortly thereafter they have a girl in the movie who actually says she's never learned to drive but suddenly she jumps in a truck with a manual shift and is able to out drive and out smart dozens of professional male drivers.
No wonder movies are dying and people care less and less about spending their hard earned money sitting through crap like this… needless to say I have pretty much lost interest in this movie
Who do they write this crap for?
