Missing charisma or something resembling a personality arc, Carter Verone (Cole Hauser) is an absolute bore. His “2 Quick 2 Livid” objective: develop his drug empire in Miami. He recruits Brian O’Connor (Paul Walker) and Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) to do his bidding, and this is the large reveal about his character… He is not a really good man. Not likely. It’s important.
Moreover, Carter takes a again seat to the motion, preferring to delegate the violent elements of her job to nearly anybody else. Not like the opposite “Quick” villains, he has no connection to our heroes, which means there are not any private stakes on the desk; it is simply one other mission for Brian and Roman to finish. To be honest, he does a memorable torture scene involving a corrupt policeman, a rat, a bucket, and a blowtorch. Will he dig by means of the officer to flee the warmth?
With one fell swoop, Carter falls disappointingly, dropping his empire, his non-public boat, and his primary daughter, Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes). His fall permits Brian and Roman to free themselves, however contemplating all the things they’ve completed, this activity appears too simple.
Nonetheless, a part of me would like to see Cole Hauser, in his “Yellowstone” kind, return as Carter in a future sequel, bringing Rip Wheeler’s full-throttle aggression.
