It’s ten years since Vin Diesel and Paul Walker got behind the wheel of this franchise and they’re probably as surprised as anyone it’s still going. After busting out of a prison van, global car thief Dom (Diesel) hatches a plan to rob Rio’s biggest drug baron of his cash. Meanwhile his sister Mia (Jordana Brewster) has a little boy/girl racer on the way thanks to cop-turned-robber Brian (Walker). To get the stash, they’re going to need fast cars and a team of experts: cue characters from past films, introduced in the style of ‘Ocean’s Eleven’.

The heist plot is lightly enjoyable, even if the finer details get muddied in a puff of exhaust smoke. There’s an amusing love-hate bromance between Diesel and newcomer to the series Dwayne Johnson, who sports a beard in case slower viewers should get confused. Overlong but slick, this still gets away with simplistic dialogue and characters, perhaps because it doesn’t take itself too seriously. And judging by the post-credits scene, there’s yet more fast and furious tomfoolery to come.

this is a wicked film but i think in my own opinion that the director made a mistake making the rock a cop intead of him and vin diesel are working alongside one another they could be like double trouble

this fifth movie is a back to basics kick ass ride with none of the 'glitz & lights' of the street racers. In my opinion this is exactly what f&f5 needed to keep the movie fans coming back. Apart from can you smell what the Rock is cookin cheesy lines its up there with the best-the 1st f&f

As a fan of the F&F series i did find this somewhat lacking!I did watch this online in poor quality but still, what happerned to racing cars? it was like a mixture of italian job and oceans 11/12.Not sure a 6th film is such a good idea, think they are just dragging it out for a payday now.

Not seen one of these before and, though Id give it 6/10 for plentiful, brilliantly staged car carnage, dont think i'll be seeing another. Got the (Tokyo) drift and one outing will do fine.

Fast n furious is not a film to stimulate the mind, but for me this film was great, lots of action and a great fight between vin diesel vs the rock fight. For the people who rate this film poorly don't think into things too much, it's not inception!

I dragged my girlfriend to see this at the weekend. Her take on it - a terrible film. My take on it - also pretty terrible. Definitely the weakest of the F+F films. The cars take a back seat (pun intended) in this installment. The film works more as a very poor man's Ocean's 11 than a racing film. Characters spend most of the film planning a robbery - then carry out said robbery using a completely different plan. WTF?! Best bit in the whole film was the ruck between Diesel and The Rock. Worth the price of admission although I was disappointed The Rock did not Rock Bottom anyone.

Mike

Mediocre fast-car-heist where muscle tone is more important than acting ability. From about 30 minutes in I found myself yawning, though in places the action picked up and was good. However, the story’s pretty predictable and audience mobile phones were coming out and being checked for messages – always a sign a movie’s getting a bit slow. The rookie female cop with only 6 months’ experience was laughable – “count me in – I’m motivated�. Of a not very large audience, 4 or 5 people left after about an hour. Consider taking motion sickness tablets before you see this one – they might stop you honking at some of the cheesy dialogue. Not very inspiring cinematography - and in places very shakey. Definitely 2 stars.

Well it obviously took a lot of practice, but it has took 4 films for them to finally ge it RIGHT! This is by far the best in series. Greta visuals, great sound, formidable baddie / pursuer (THE ROCK!), less CGI, more cars, more women, better sounds and better dialogue. OK, so it's not original in the slightest, it's transparently OCEANS 11 on wheels, but wasn;t the orignal a rip-off of POINT BREAK? The camerarderie shows through and all the old "favourites" show up again.... Even Matt Schulze from part 1 is given a meaty role (if you can call it that)! Some of the stunts were OTT, men bounce off bridges and buildings and are still able to run. Refuse trucks outrun Sports cars (you get my drift), Saferooms are located next to underground car parks...(heh)! But on the whole, a truly great sequel and also an apology for the very sorry 4th installment... Roll on Part 6.>! (Never thought I'd here myself say that!)

The review has it about right. Loud, brash and in your face subtle this isn't. If you loves the first four you will love this one too. If you didn't love the first film don't bother. I expect it will do well enough for Fast 6, no doubt in 3D, to be coming our way in 2 or 3 years. The film looks good, The chase and fight scenes look better and the girls wear tight clothes or very little clothing. If you are male between 15 and 25 you may love it. A young male pair for Beastly for the girls. You know what you are going to get before you walk in and it doesn't disappoint.
