Okaaaaay so i saw this film the day it came out in Uk cinemas and i have got to say i was impressed.
Having been a fan of the Fast and Furious franchise since the first film, i was wondering if the fifth installment would be worthy of the brand name, and honestly it is! The story line seems cliched at first (a group of people stealing millions of dollars from a high security safe? come on... like i haven't heard that before! ) but the storyline fits in perfectly with the other installments. You wont be disappointed with the ton of explosions, car crashes and gunfights, and the narrow misses (and often great hits) will keep you on the edge of your seat.
If you were a fan of the original cast, you'll be pleased to know they all group together in Rio to pull off 'One Last Job'. Ludachris (Tej), Tyrese Gibson (Ronan Pierce),Matt Schulze (Vince), and Sung Kang (Han Lue) who have all appeard in one of the movies all meet in fast five.The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) even makes a cameo as the chief antagonist to the group. You'll get a nice surprise if you stay past the ending credits too.
Fast Five is the latest film in the fast & furious series, and is also the longest. At over 2hrs long, i wondered whether it would start to drag on, but the film is really fast moving and action packed. The only bit which i thought was overly far fetched was the bit where Paul Walker and Vin Diesel drag a safe with two Dodge Chargers, with half of Rio police force in pursuit. Nonetheless, it was entertaining to watch them destroy half of Rio's road network.
All in all, its a great film which you must see if you are a fast and Furious fan.
Heres the Trailer for the movie:
