Hello Peeps, so I’ve returned for another film review this time of Fast & Furious 6 starring various characters from some of the previous Fast & Furious series. Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his old crew including the likes of Brian (Paul Walker), Roman (Tyrese Gibson), Han (Sung Kang), Gisele (Gal Gadot), Tej (Chris Ludacris Bridges) and Riley (Gina Carano) are hired by Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), a CIA agent to help capture Shaw (Luke Evans) and his team before they’re able to acquire a multi billion dollar computer chip for a satellite that’s able to wipe out communications in targeted areas. In return for their help the crew will be granted full pardons which along with photo evidence of Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) still being alive and with Shaw’s team draws Dom’s crew out of retirement. Facing such an organised and lethal opposition Dom & his crew face their greatest and deadliest challenge leading to a dramatic finale. I’m not going to go into too much detail as the trailer below pretty much shows parts of the storyline and a trailer is more appealing to a film fan than the written word:
In terms of what I thought of the film I’d probably rate this as one of the if not the best Fast & Furious film I’ve seen. As with most driving/ action films some of the stunt and fight scenes are hilariously unbelievable including but not limited to a flying headbutt. That added to some comedic banter makes the film in my opinion a cross between The Transporter, WWF Wrestling (it had to really with the Rock in it) and Rush Hour. I don’t think you really need to have seen the previous films to understand the film though to understand the storyline between Letty, Dom and the crew it would be helpful to have seen them.
In conclusion I’m rating the ‘Fast & Furious 6’ 3.5 stars out of 5… for some reason this is becoming a habit finding films neither bad or epic but worth a watch.
