Neither fast or fierce, and will make one furious

Have made no secret in the past of intensely disliking, and even outright hating a lot, a vast majority of The Asylum's (near-universally maligned for good reason) output, though there is curiosity as to whether they are capable of making something good and compulsive about their output's badness. Admittedly, The Asylum do have a small group of watchable films and the occasional (big emphasis on that word) above average one, unfortunately outweighed by the lacklustre at best and often dreadful films they churn out.

One would think from the title that 'The Fast and the Fierce' has something to do with 'The Fast and the Furious' films or ripping them off. It's neither really, and it is that it's not a rip-off, despite being very predictable and derivative, is pretty much the only thing that stops it from being one of the studio's worst. While not quite one of The Asylum's all-time worst, everything bad about their output is present and it's basically an abomination that shows no shame it seems in being as bad as it is.

1/10 is not a common rating for me these days and generally try to be encouraging and balanced when reviewing. There have been a fair share of films seen that have deserved the rating and look as though they didn't even try, other than wasting good actors that is one of film's biggest cardinal sins for me. That's the case with 'The Fast and the Fierce'.

As expected, 'The Fast and the Fierce' is cheap, and that's being generous, visually, even for something made on a low budget. It's very drably and sometimes dizzyingly shot, incoherently edited (bacon-slicer-like) with glaring and unforgivably sloppy continuity errors and even the scenery doesn't make much impression despite being actually the least bad aspect of the film. There are worse special effects in other Asylum films, they still look very cheap though and like they were an afterthought and made in haste. Am aware of the film being low-budget, but there are examples of low-budget films that still don't look awful and manage to be pretty good.

Can remember little about the music, which tended to be intrusive, annoying and out of place. The script makes little sense, sounds awkward constantly and on the wrong side of camp throughout.

There is absolutely nothing thrilling, tense, suspenseful, emotionally investable or fun about the story. The predictability may have been forgivable if the film was actually engaging let alone exciting but it fails to be either throughout. 'The Fast and the Fierce' is basically non-stop dullness and intelligence-insulting ridiculousness, with unintentional humour because of the excessive cheese, too much often extraneous talk and not enough action and extremely flat and irritating character writing.

Its incredibly dreadful with no exceptions acting from a cast that wouldn't even pass for Z-grade is one of the film's worst assets.

Overall, really poor. 1/10 Bethany Cox

If we can't get along, the terrorists win.

This is an Asylum production. Director Ron Thornton passed while making it or shorty there after. The mock buster title has nothing to do with the race car on the cover nor does it have "B" actors having stunt doubles drive fast cars with CG effects so they can violate every law of physics.

Benji (Zach Steffey) is one of few people who has access to the "Genesis 7" code which will...well we never know that plot point but we know it is important. He is coerced by Harriet (Monique Parent) into giving her the code. If he doesn't his wife Donna (Mimi Davila), who is in a plane, will die and he will also be paid $10 million dollars which to me would have been a deal closer. Harriet is a bad impersonation of Elle Driver. The plane will become uncontrollable if it does certain things...like try to land. Donna befriends Kurt (Jason Tobias) and calls him Justin for much of the film.

The film has one dramatic riff that it plays over and over. Not to give too much away, but what is a Middle Eastern-American is the hero and in the end a guy with a skin head apologizes for his views. The acting was horrible as I managed to breathe through my mouth for much of the feature. It also had lines like, "As useful as a Pogo stick in quicksand" and "Trickier then trying to get a mule to mate with a sheepdog." These lines would have worked better in "Airplane IV." There are no Volcanoes, meteors, or ice storms to throw this into an Asylum, "so bad it is good" category, but it tries.

Guide: 1 F-word. No sex or nudity.

But this was nothing like "The Fast and the Furious", not even by a longshot...

"The Fast and the Fierce" is definitely one of the worst titles The Asylum has put out so far. Especially since the title cashes in on "The Fast and the Furious", but it has absolutely nothing to do with that movie or genre.

This movie was actually entertaining enough for what it turned out to be, go figure.

There was some good enough acting throughout the movie, which was also a surprise for a movie such as this. It was especially nice to see Dominique Swain in the movie.

The CGI in "The Fast and the Fierce" was questionable at times. But of course, that was to be expected by a movie from The Asylum.

I managed to sit through the movie in all of its mundane entirety, and I can honestly say that I will not be returning to it a second time around.
