Okay, maybe masterpiece was the wrong word. But, the dynamic if the audience in the theater was great. There were two groups. First, there were the guys who genuinely love the series and then there were the others who love the insanity/bad acting in the movie. I fell right in the middle (and adored both parts.)
The series totally understands both audiences and gives them everything they could possibly want. For the diehards, the action scenes were great. For the other crowd, it had the Rock (who is a cyborg) and Vin Diesel just chewing up screen time with some of the best one liners delivered in the most laughably bad fashion. It was just wonderful.
