For Fast and Furious fans:
I have never seen any of the films. I love action flicks so I am willing to give the series a try. Should I watch all 6 or are there some I can skip without losing ANY of the story. Keep in mind that even if a movie is bad, if it contributes at all to an ongoing story line I am willing to sit through it.
You can probably manage to just see 6 and still enjoy it I'm assuming.
I'm in the same boat as you, kind of. I had never really seen any of them until Fast Five, and I was able to decude enough important stuff about the characters from that one -- there are a couple flashbacks and they talk about characters' past. Plus it looks like F & F 6 is more of a direct sequel to 5, and considering 5 is a solid flick, I'd just start there.
Also, I believe all the other F&F movies were more "racing" oriented than they were all-out action, like Fast Five was.
And also again, I saw about the first 10-15 minutes or so of Drift and am convinced it's among the worst modern movies of all time.
