FAST FIVE (2011)
Race cars speeding along the street of Rio De Jainero, All Cast members come together all at once, the rooftop chasing and ultimate gun shooting, what more can you ask? Here it comes the fifth installment of “The Fast and the Furious” (2001) franchise, thiz is actually the bridging story between “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” (2006) and is a direct connection to the ending scenes of “Fast & Furious” (2009), when Dom (Vin Diesel) was sentenced to 25 years in federal prison and Brian’s gang (Paul Walker) attempt to free him again. Justin Lin directs thiz sequel with identical pace and tone from previous movies. Just like the previous F & F movies, it’s all about high speed car racing, hot sexy babes and some of cat and mouse criminal activities. Well, to tell you the truth, thiz time is more like a heist movie than car race movie. We will find very less of eye-catching race cars, the movie puts aside many glamour factors, to do otherwise they step on the gas pedal to full throttle into pure action. Frankly, I don’t know for sure, who are the real “Fast Five” in thiz movie. Certainly, the focus is still on two central characters Dom and Brian. The rest are Dom’s sister Mia (Jordana Brewster), the big mouth Roman (Tyrese Gibson), the high tech mechanic Tej (Chris "Ludacris" Bridges), the big muscle Vince (Matt Schulze), the beautiful driver Gal (Gisele Harabo) and the charismatic Sung Kang (Han Lue) from “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift”. One thing for sure, there are more than five people. Thiz time they will face a well-matched opponent, the ambitious Federal Agent Luke Hobbs who is presented by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson! Thiz seems to be a great selection. The Rock delivers a strong and believable tough guy performance, I’m beginning to think thiz WWE’s sensation could be a great serious Actor as well. On the other hand, Vin Diesel performs one round of WWE’s wrestling scene with The Rock. It’s pretty entertaining to see two giant muscles brutally clash with each other in bare hand fight. Thiz time it comes to my mind, if Vin Diesel would also be one hell of great wrestler in WWE’s ring? With all the hype and enthusiasm around, thiz is clearly not the last F & F movie to be made, they will be back to do their things again. Thiz implicit confirmation is exposed in one of Hobb’s famous lines, “We’ll find ‘em, we take ‘em as a team and we bring ‘em back. And above all else, we don’t ever, ever let them get into cars (again).”
