Movie Review: FAST FIVE
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in Fast Five. In this installment, former cop Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) on the opposite side of the law. Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Matt Schulze, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Tego Calderon and Don Omar for this ultimate high-stakes race. Since Brian and Mia Toretto (Brewster) broke Dom out of custody, they've blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he's not the only one on their tail. Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs (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. -- (C) Universal

GENRE: ACTION, ADVENTURE
The Movie FAST FIVE was INSANE!!!
The most action-packed movie I have seen after Mission Impossible. The movie is just full of surprises and thrills that would make your 2 hours almost a passing time. In the end, you wish the film was a little longer.
Great Casts! Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson were such a TRIO of MADNESS. Acting was above average but it fairly went well all over the film's appeal. I really commend the fighting scene of Dwayne and Vin... It was EPIC! I feel like I'm watching UFC! The different appeal of each of the characters blended with its vision to keep the momentum of this high-octane film.
The director was great. The shots and camera angles used were superb. Shots were precise and appropriate. The setting in BRAZIL was also a great choice for car chasing scenes. It would just make the film even more difficult to make as you see it on screen.
Superb Car Models, Chases and Crashes... Another dazzling display of stunt driving and death-defying Stunts leaving you at AWE for almost 2 Hours. This film never fail to amaze with those dream cars. The film suited not only action-packed lovers but also car lovers as well.
It is packed with jaw dropping, eye popping action from beginning to end.
The film does a good job of not wasting any time and most of the serious moments are kept to a minimum in favor of heist scenes or action.
A Highly recommended Film this Summer!
