FAST FIVE - Movie Review
Director Justin Lin (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious) returns to the helm for this adrenaline-charged sequel reuniting series stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker for their biggest thrill ride yet. With the police in hot pursuit and wanted fugitive Dom (Diesel) in tow, Brian (Walker) and Mia (Jordana Brewster) make their way to Rio, and realize they've run out of luck. In order to earn their freedom, they'll have to pull off their biggest job yet. After assembling a crack team of the top racers in Brazil, the gang prepares to confront the crooked businessman who seeks to silence them forever. Meanwhile, unstoppable federal agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has assembled his own team, an intimidating group of top cops whose sole mission is to capture Dom, Brian, and Mia by whatever means possible. But as the race heats up, Hobbs loses his ability to tell the good guys from the bad guys. Now, in order to prevent the lawless trio from being turned into roadkill before he can arrest them, Luke puts his pedal to the metal, and begins to rely more on his killer instinct than his police training
Okay, I’m just gonna say it. Yep, right now. TESTOSTERONE overload. I literally swooned with all the action, fast cars, gorgeous guys – I mean there were a lot of guys to chose from and I fell in love with them all. The twist in the heist, goofball macho comedy lines, the downing of the bad guy, the turning of the good guy to bad all made for a high action – full throttle action flick. I mean they threw everything but the kitchen sink in this one. They even had great female characters that had spunk and skill when it came to the ultimate job. I give this one a 4 out of 5 hotties. I took off one point simply because I would have liked just a little more female in your face action (hey, that’s the girl power in me talking).
Oh, and by the way - My husband Loved it! Said it was the best action flick he'd seen in over a month.
