R.I.P. Paul Walker


R.I.P. Paul Walker

The actor most known for his role in The Fast and the Furious movies died yesterday afternoon (11/30/13) in a car accident in Valencia, CA.  His friend Roger Rodas was driving.  Walker had been at a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide earlier in the day.  Both men were found dead in the wreckage of a red Porche.  Walker was only 40 years old.

It’s sad and shocking news.  I’ve been a fan of Paul Walker’s movies ever since I saw him in Pleasantville (1998).  It’s awful to see him go way before his time.

Paul was not known for dramas, rather he was most known for action movies and thrillers.

Running Scared Walker Gun

My favorite Paul Walker movie is Running Scared (2006).  Other great Walker movies include Eight Below (2006), The Lazarus Project (2008), The Fast and the Furious (2001), Pawn Shop Chronicles (2013), and The Death and Life of Bobby Z (2007).

Eight Below Walker Dogs

Walker was supposed to be in Fast & Furious 7 in 2014.

Hours (2013) will be Paul’s second to the last movie to be released.  It is set to be released later this month.  The last movie that he made was Brick Mansions (2014).

The world lost another great actor.  He will be missed.

Paul Walker movies that I have reviewed include:

Pawn Shop Chronicles (2013)

Vehicle 19 (2013)

Hours (2013)

Paul Walker keeps making basically one-man independent movies.  At least this one looks better than Vehicle 19 (2013).

The film is about a man (Walker) who desperately tries to keep his premature newborn baby daughter alive during Hurricane Katrina.

The movie was written and directed by Eric Heisserer and the rest of the noteworthy cast includes Genesis Rodriguez, and Nick Gomez.

The film is set to release on 12/13/13.
