Back in the ’70s, producers like Roger Corman would turn out a movie like any in the “The Fast & the Furious” franchise within a week. These action movies were built on thin, unbelievable plot lines and situations and over-the-top explosions and set pieces. A part of me is happy that films like this – action-driven stories that celebrate pyrotechnic effects – still exist, the other part of me is unhappy that these movies now cost so much to make. But, as the box office proves time and time again, they make their money back and then some.
