Not since the first instalment has the Fast and Furiousfranchise been this satisfying. Ditching the tacky CGI car chases of the last sequel, Fast & Furious 5 delivers the stirring adrenaline rush of the original.
This movie is big, rounding up all the series’ lead characters including Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker), Mia (Jordana Brewster), Tej (Ludacris), Vince (Matt Schulze) Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and Han (Sung Kang). Yes that’s right, Han — meaning this sequel takes place before the events of Tokyo Drift.
Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel at his best) resides in Rio de Janeiro, calling upon the gang for one final, Ocean’s 11-style heist: taking $100 million in cash from a highly secure police station. As one character puts it: “This mission just went from Mission Impossible to Mission In-Freaken-Sanity.”
The stakes are higher and so are the skirts in Fast & Furious 5, which shows off Rio’s stunning locales and bodies (case in point: the drop-dead gorgeous Gisele, played by Gal Gadot).
Also making an appearance as the head of the task force entrusted to bring down Toretto, Dwayne Johnson brings a whole new meaning to built-like-a-machine — and seriously challenges Diesel’s alpha-male status.
The final chase is epic; at one screening the audience broke the silence with all-out applause. And if you stick around during the credits, your patience will be rewarded.
