Needs a Spolier Alert[edit]

The article's plot description is much too thorough. I believe a spolier warning should be included. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wonstereo (talkcontribs) 20:46, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

  • IMO it is not thorough enough. For such a good movie, the plot section is awfully limited. --Ihmhi (talk) 09:10, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
  • I agree. I plan to add more of the plot; the Wiki pages for many other films have much more detailed plots. --Vszeto (talk) 04:00, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Benout.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Benout.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 01:54, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

This Needs a controversy section as well.[edit]

I think you did a good job with this page. I think it needs a "controversy" section though.

When this movie came out, many people who grew up in North Orange County claimed that the movie mirrored the Stuart Tay Case (also called the "Honor Roll Murder") as you know. Many of the scenes in this movie closely mirrored the case (the computer thefts, the "love triangle" issue, the New Years Day beating/murder). Justin Lin was from Buena Park, CA (the same city where the murder took place). Many people (especially those in the Asian community) complained about this movie because Lin claimed (and continues to claim) that the movie doesn't really mirror the Tay case. Those that grew up in that area (in 1992/'93) know different. It may be that he just had thoughts of this case loosely floating in his mind (and didn't intentionall refer to it) but it's difficult to conclude that there could be any coincidence. Lin admitted to knowing of the case, but has vigorously downplayed the close story the movie follows. I'm not trying to be acusatory, but the facts (& Lin's explanation) don't gell well.

Either way, this movie recieved some criticism when it debuted, & that should probably be mentioned. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.172.73.68 (talk) 17:48, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Protected[edit]

Edits to this articles are restricted to autoconfirmed editors again, following a continued push to represent this film as part of the "Fast and the Furious" franchise.
I acknowledge that 187.15.* might be willing to compromise here as well. Splitting that comment from the cast section into its own section can be an improvement. Discuss!

  • What is the problem to have a "related movies" section in this article? Justin Lin already said that it is the same character. In the "cast" section there is a link in Han Lue name to every information described there, so all that information there is unnecessary, since it is just a "cast" section. It is not a POV push. It is just an improvement to the article. The POV push was made by you that do not want any other person to change what you have done. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 187.15.8.128 (talk) 04:55, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

One week since last post. Where are the people who wants to discuss? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 187.15.119.236 (talk) 13:47, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

  • So, where does Lin say this? What source says this? WhisperToMe (talk) 22:03, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
