    It'll be the same as the other two, entertaining. It'll never be a "good" film, but I was certainly entertained by the previous 2 :)

    It however will not be "entertaining" for its technical reference or continuity with real life.

    I for one would like to see a seat's stictching come loose due to too much NOS :p

    I saw the trailer the other day, it looks very ropey.

    The film (plot, acting, script, etc, etc, etc) will be crap. No question, end of.

    IF however the cinematography is any good at all, and the actual driving parts of the film (if there are any?! ;)) are any good, then it might be worth watching. I'm quite happy to tolerate some American nonce with a dodgy accent just so long as I can see some relatively cool car play.

    First two were entertaining and worth a watch.

    Just be careful of your footwells.

    You watch as the MX5 becomes the new Corsa, complete with large rear wing.

    But they weren't entertaining. I had the misfortune of being made to sit through part of the first one, and don't care to ever repeat the experience.

    Should be just like the others, no plot worth bothering with, cars that manage to top out at about 130mph despite seemingly having hundreds of bhp and virtually an entire halfords catalogue stuck to them.

    Should be a good laugh :D

    Having watched the trailer just now (while eating i'll admit) I didn't spot an MX5, plenty of 350Z and RX7/8 action going on though.


    edit - and someone needs to learn to use the edit button :rolleyes:

    There isn't any but it's the most accessible RWD Jap sports car for Kev's given they can be had for about £2k.

    Yeah I know that, but will they be clever enough to realise? :p

    If it doesn't appear in the film, it probably won't even cross their minds.
