How Come? Because, even in recognizing the existence of serious Vin Diesel actor, writers', directors' and producers' talents, we love it not for that! We love him for his muscles, shaved head and glare. For self-confident smile and a hot scene with Michelle Rodriguez in the garage. And most importantly - for what it is amazing, inimitable, magically cool!
We love to see how it breaks down walls, destroying enemies right and left (no matter it or nekromongery drug dealers), expertly manages all modes of transport, including nuclear missiles, and after another to save the world is pulled on the beach with live beauty. For this we are willing to forgive him not only a violation of the laws of physics, the SDA and just laws, but even that is actually his name is Mark Sinclair.
Because of talented actors in Hollywood lot. And Vin Diesel this one!
