The series that first captivated audiences a decade ago with its crew of
underground Los Angeles street racers bound by a code of family and loyalty
takes its die-hard audience on the biggest thrill ride to date. After blasting
through heart-stopping runs in Miami's race circuit, exposing the insular
underworld of Tokyo drifting and rocketing through tunnels hidden underneath the
U.S./Mexico border, our heroes are back in action.
Action Crime Drama - Like the previous four films, this is a car-heavy action film aimed
at the young male action crowd. Fans of the series will be happy to
see the return of nearly all the major players from the various
installments. Language, violent content, and some intense sequences
will make the film of concern for parents of young children.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 150 moviegoers:
OUTSTANDING REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, rated "Fast Five" very high. As with virtually any movie, there will always be a few who rate a movie low while the vast majority rate it high, so unless your taste in movies is typically way different than most everyone else, YOU SHOULD LOVE "FAST FIVE."
Since we last saw them, Brian (Paul Walker) and Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster) broke Dom
(Vin Diesel) out of custody and have blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into
a corner in Rio, they must pull off one last job in order to gain their freedom.
Their mission? Assemble an elite team of top operatives made up of their family
of friends to orchestrate an insane heist worth $100 million. Dom and Brian know
their only shot of getting out for good means crippling the corrupt businessman
(Joaquim De Almeida) who wants them dead. But he's not the only one on the
unlikely allies' tails.
Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) never misses his target. When he
is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an
all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs
learns he can't separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his
instincts to corner his prey…before someone else runs them down first.
