R.I.P. Paul Walker


R.I.P. Paul Walker

Paul Walker suit

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)

Vehicle 19 (2013)

I had no expectations before watching this movie.  Paul Walker has made some surprising films in the past, so I thought that I would give Vehicle 19 a chance.  Which movies has Walker surprised me in before?  Good question.  The answer is Running Scared (2006), The Lazarus Project (2008), and Eight Below (2006).

Vehicle 19 follows Michael Woods (Paul Walker), an American who travels to a foreign country.  He is in for a bumpy ride when a mix-up with the rental car company lands him in a vehicle with a cell phone, a pistol, and a bound and gagged woman in the back seat.

The movie was written and directed by Mukunda Michael Dewil.  There are no other noteworthy cast members.

Vehicle 19 Walker bad look

Paul Walker is the lead in this boring waste of time, foreign, low budget one man show filled with cheap car chases, laughable special effects, a dull storyline, and uninteresting dialogue.

The soundtrack was painfully annoying and did not help the film’s cause.

For a movie classified as an action/thriller, it was deathly slow at times.

The plot was basically the equivalent to the punch line of a bad joke.  It was not entertaining, it lacked a point, and I quickly wanted to change the subject.  Often when the main character encountered a problem in the movie, the solution was all way too convenient.

The acting was bad.  The writing was worse, but the filmmaking as a whole was just a disgrace.  Luckily the movie’s runtime was only 85 minutes.  However, that was an 85 minutes that I will not get back.

Do yourself a favor and steer clear of this train wreck that somehow became a movie.  It is not worth your time or money.

I rate this movie a 1 on a scale of 1-10.

Buy, rent, or run?  RUN!
