Director: Justin Lin
Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris
A very successful and entertaining franchise it has been, and we all have watched these movies for pure fun reasons.
This part starts of with Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker) chilling out,enjoying their retirement.In the meanwhile another gang led by ex-military Owen (Luke Shaw) is troubling the city.Agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) tracks Toretto down and requests him to help and reveals Toretto’s ex girlfriend Letti (Michelle Rodriguez) is alive and they strike a simple deal : Hobbs gets Owen and Toretto gets Letty.
As simple as that : and movie starts with what the franchise has always offered.Action scenes,amazing cars,races and of-course a very catch soundtrack to back up all the action.
Now usually its more of a boys affair but with the entrance of a new character Riley(Gina Carano : Third best female MMA fighter) : this time we see some bad-ass fights between girls : i.e between Riley and Letty and trust me on this one, the fights are awesome as Gina Carano and Michelle give it all and it shows on-screen.
Everyone in the movie is comfortable with their roles and they do it with ease. We all know as this series progressed,action became more unbelievable and it holds true with this part too: but you know what : it’s really fun to watch all those cars,explosions and over the top stunts on big screen.
There are quite a few wow moments where the audience went “woooooo” and screamed.
The stunts are bigger,chases are superb,hell lot of cars are destroyed : well they also have a tank in this one and it crushes cars as if they were pastries.
Director Justin Lin does not hold back and gives us ridiculously fast and furiously furious but guilty pleasure action movie which stays true to its trademark style.
We also have a surprise at the end of the movie : so wait until the titles start rolling and be surprised.
Overall it’s for us to enjoy,this is not the best in the series but this is definitely a movie worth the money as it never stops entertaining.
Go for it and have fun.
